Hi All.

Been bored over here in Wales, feel rough, weather been rougher, so thought I would have a play with my bike.

See if you think it looks better or not?? I have got to re do the side pannels with some new red backgrounds.

Little slow but got this pic thing figured out finally. Picked this up off Craigs list this summer for 600 with a clean Jersey Title. Wasnt running needed a new coil. Wire had seperated at the point it comes out of the coil body. Came with brand new Edelbrock pumper and a complete XRs Only Exhaust and header. Gotta Love it.

Buying non-runners is always fun! I picked up an XL500 many years ago that was in super shape, but wouldn't start. From the owner's description (It ran when I parked it last fall, but now it wont fire) I had a hunch it was bad gas in the carb. I took a chance and bought it (CHEAP!). I sat on the curb in front of his house and drained the carb... filled it up with fresh petrol. It started on the second or third kick... away I rode. I was expecting the police to pull me over on the ride home for stealing a bike!:excuseme:

Good looking scooter... btw:thumbsup:
