Fired up this freshly restored 1985 CR500 the other day. She's had a full, ground up rebuild in the 'shop. That first fire up always gives me goosebumps!!
And, no this wasn't the first start up, she'd been run for a good 5mins before hand, so there was no chance of cold seizures. (And, so I could go round and check everything for tightness!) But, it was her first run round the yard and through the gears. Feels dammed good to ride a fresh rebuild!

Sadly she's not mine, the customer will be up to collect her in the next few days.

I'll dig the before pics out tomorrow.

? Yeh, I'm pretty big. 6.3"-6-4" about 200-210lbs. I need to slim down a little, I'm getting a little podgy!

That's what the customer wanted. He saw my 86 250 and decided he wanted gold. I know the 85 had silver, but I think she looks sweet! I'm sucker for gold rims!
