Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )

Nice one Frosty.
Looks like it is pretty well unmolested.
Maybe you should come over this way at the end of October.  Wink

I found it in Newtown Geelong my mate is an electrician and he spotted and told the guy I'd be interested and he rang me so I went and had a look and agreed to buy it.

It is all the original mirrors spare wheels the tank is in good nick sidecovers are nos it has 61500km's he said it had been rebored before he got it he was the second owner and he told me it has sat in the shed for the last 10 years.

There is a bit of surface rust but it is a goer and wouldn't take much at all to make it mint. Wink

Yes it is a bit back on the to do list of my bikes but I think I will keep it parts seem plentiful and I like the gold rims my xr500 would probably be faster but the xt looks very good. Smiley
