New to me 1983 IT490 added to the stable!

These big bore air head smokers are a dying breed, so I started looking for them. Found one for $500 that actually ran. Pilot was plugged so it wouldn't idle. No big, just needs a carb cleaning. I am hoping to plate it and use it as a gravel road machine. I have considered swapping chassis or just front ends in search of better brakes. At this point, I don't know what all the options are.

One of the best bikes I ever had was an IT200, trophied first time out with it. Got to ride many of my friends IT's, 175, 250, 400, 425, 465, and 490....even an WR500. I just hate to see this thread die.

Breath, breath.........


We can do this!
