Hello everybody, This is my first post on TT (long time browser), so i will use it to introduce myself and my project that I started around march. My name is Wade, and I am a senior in the industrial design program at the University of Kansas. I picked up a 1984 XR500 with title for $200. It was missing quite a few parts, but the good stuff was still there. I half assed put it back in dirt bike form, and enjoyed it for a couple months. I am now college budget building it into a street bike in the vast area that is my apt. bed room. My budget is roughly $100 a month for this bike, so the materials going into it are either cheap, found, given to me, or (s)crap. I've got to set up a file hosting account, and I will post the pics I have up to this point, and update as i go along.
