Hello to everyone, my name is (obviously) Joe I just want to start out by saying thanks to TT and all it members. I've been into 4 strokes all my life starting with a 73 XR75. This website has got to be the best I've ever seen with its wealth of knowledge and helpful input to any problem. I've ridden allot of bikes over the years and took a break from it all when we had kids, but recently I bought my son (you guessed it) an CRF80, so I'm re-living my youth a tad.
Me being the responsible dad (yeah right, can you say ulterior motive) I couldn't let my son ride alone, so I picked up a basket case (82) XR500 out of a horse trailer on Cape Cod for 300 bucks and I've been restoring it. Thats where you guys came in, again thanks for all your help. Just reading your forums has helped me a great deal.
Its almost done and as soon as I can figure out how, I'll send in some before and after pics of it. Any help on how to do this would be great.
