Nice job GMADD! That thing is sweeeet!

So, what's the story on this bad boy?

Its been totally rebuilt from scratch as it was in a bit of a state.

100_00053.jpgcan only get 1 picture each thread for some reason.

I put one of those universal suppertraps on my 650L It's money well spent

Had to repack it and it sounds and looks great,a brilliant after market part for any thumper.

That TT is way cool!

Very nice!! I have the same bike and have been fixing her up also but don't think it will ever be that nice.

Just be paitent with a bit of time and effort you will get there, took me 8 weeks to complete but many late nights and week ends.Now looking for another one.

Very nice work! Can you talk a little about how you got the tank in such nice shape? (My XT500 tank has some dents and dings, and needs straightening)

BC3, what year(s) were those pictures taken? Is that you throwin' 'er sideways?

The tank cost the most to restore,i tryed air pressure but wouldnt do anything.So it had to be opened up and with a bit of heat and gental pushing out the dents it eventually came out the hole welded back up and tested for leaks,then it was polished,painted and decals fitted then finally laqured.

Wow, that's what I was afraid of. I've seen some videos of people working out dents using dry ice and a blow dryer (heat differential creates tension?), but that's on steel sheet metal. My tank is aluminum.

i think they are all alloy on the tt just the xt that had metal tanks.
