1977 XT500 project

Well I got the new tires on and have put a 100 miles on it. I don't have any major complaints. I kind of like the old school nostalgia of it. Once I learned the starting routine I can usually start it in one or two kicks even after sitting for a couple days.

I have mounted a set of soft bags off my XL250R for the planned trips.
I am looking for a front fender mounted bag if anyone has any suggestions.

I have a couple more tweaks to do and I am planning a couple day trips into the blues with my brother on his KLR.

He lives 125 miles away and I plan on riding the XT to his place and then into the mountains from there.

Thanks for the help on the gearing.
