So eventually the original steelie 500 you will sell as a roller then?
Definitely. My buddy over here is building a Gen 4 also but with a KX500 plant. We'll have to see what runs best.
The first 500 was pretty much a roach. The motor is good but I still haven't gotten it out as the swingarm bolt is still frozen after a week of Kroil.
It's got some good parts though and the frame is street-legal. I'll see how the second one looks and maybe combine the best of both into one roller just to get some parts out of the garage. I'm tripping over two Husabergs and four Hondas in various states of functionality right now.
