    Doing a rebuild with all crucial things getting attention.
    No paint but a better tank. Motor has the age where it needs a service to start over fresh like to be safe with new valves..
    I bought mega bikes but never had 1 come apart with so much mint still, no trashed frame bearings all greasy still... Both muffler baffles all in tact even, bizarre

    The 86 510 was the first really easy starting of the line.

    Not much left on the TX
    Plastic has been cleaned up. Barrel will be back this week, hope the head is ready too. New valves to be all seated for no leaks. Waiting on the seal kit for the shock.

    I had it running today on a tiny amount of fuel.
    She ran on the first kick. I had major trouble with an aftermarket intake.
    I was sold on idea that would work lmao, trim the carb they say lol. Not a chance, so little room in the frame. Waste of time and money, you wont see me buying that crap again, NOS or used only way to go..
    So i had to borrow a nice carb and a intake from a spare bike, what a shame..
    Can't mickey mouse sh*t.

    So the last bit to make fresh is the shock.. 20210417_174355.jpg

    Rode this old beater over to the mail looking for my decals, yeah nothing yet...
    Had fun blasted around the hood for 10 minutes, a good heat cycle #1.
    Going drop some oil and see how it all looks. Go out again soon.
