My crew and I have made about 6,000 conversions over the last 23 years. The bulk of that was indeed CR500AF. However I've done several hundred KX500AF bikes as well. Just did 2 this past few weeks. Ive raced both conversion types a lot. They are honestly

Nothing wrong with a clean steelie. But if it isnt still, brand new,in the crate. It isnt going to typically sell anywhere near what a newer service Honda or Built500 ,500AF does on average. There are always exceptions. I do this for a living everyday. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Thinking of selling my Service Honda. What's it worth? 12/27/2019 1:29 PM

The price depends in marketing it to guys looking for that bike. Post it on my fb group. A 2004 in mint shape just sold for 10k. (Unusually high, but the SH bikes fo hold their value.) A mint 2014 sold last month for 14k. My guess is 9 to 11k. It really

Currently my favorite is 2013-2017 CRF250R chassis like in this build . (Or 2012-2016 CRF450R) I do prefer to run a merge linkage knuckle , and 22 offset clamps.
