My first ever Vital thread!

So the story starts that I've had this little '99 XR100 since I was a kid.
The poor thing has been through hell, but it was a great bike that I had a lot of fun on (even after I outgrew it).
It's been rotting away in my old man's shed for about the last 8 years, held together with grease and rust. I always had the intent of fixing it as a mini project on the side of everything else, but never got around to it.

Skip ahead a bit, I now live about 3hrs away and work in a bike shop. A few buddies have this idea that they want to buy pit bikes and ride them as supermotos/motards at the local go-kart track (there's a regular weekly meeting). Well now why would I buy a bike when I have this perfectly great (not running/ falling apart etc) little xr tucked away?
What a perfect opportunity!

.....and so it has begun.

My experience with XR 100's says that the OP realised that bike still had a good 400 hours left on it as it is and didnt actually require a rebuild at all. So he hit it with the garden hose and has been motoing in his back yard ever since and hasn't had a chance to update us all.
