Very nice. It gives me inspiration to finish the one that I have languishing in my back yard. I want to do much the same as you have done, but I probably won't make it street legal. My DRZ400 is my legal dirt bike, and I presently have a 1980 XR250 that I enjoy for pure offroad. But an XR500 would be just that much more fun! By the way, I have those same shocks on the back of my XR250 now.
