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 )

Im back, had some computer issues and had to buy a new one. The 500 project is slowly coming along. I got the pipe and FMF Q silencer last month from Service Honda. I just ordered a new clutch basket, inner hub and pressure plate as well as a complete clutch. I have to modify the silencer a bit, it is made to fit the Service Honda KX500AF. It is very close though. I just need to get the welding work done, lower radiator brackets, front motor mounts and relocate the rear frame head stay. My girlfriend solved my fuel issue, she placed the large capacity Clarke tank from her 07 KX250 on my 04 chassis and it fit well. The 03/04 tanks wont work due to the height of the 500 cylinder. A stock 03/04 tank will work but only holds 2.2 gallons. In 05, the KX250 got a new motor which placed the cylinder in a more straight up position. Clarke had to redesign their tank to clear the cylinder, this clearance allowed it to clear the 500 cylinder. This project is taking a bit longer than I thought but I can see the end is near and cant wait to ride it!

Glad to see your back Flyin, keep the photos coming in as you get closer to finishing this bike I look froward to seeing it.

Cheers Mick.

Thanks! I tried really hard to build it so it looked like it came from Kawasaki that way. It definately goes good! Its not quite as nimble as it was when it was a 250 but its close. Much more nimble than the old 500 chassis though. I dont have much time on it but am looking forward to some more seat time very soon!

Yes it does look like a factory built bike. So whats your next project? An older KDX maybe?

How did you go fitting everything in did you have to alter the frame at all.

Also in America can you ride that where ever you want? Does it have to be registered how are the laws over there for riding in forests etc etc. Smiley

They probably need a 'title'. Its probably like the PE's, they were not legal for riding on streets back then like they were here. From what i have read on some US forums it varies from state to state and in some states it is possible to get street rego on bikes considered 'offroad use only' and each state has different requirements.
