This is far from dead - in fact, I'm just starting to turn my attention to this project. I'm accumulating bits here and there (and a whole 'nother '05 525EXC bike...) to get this bike going again.
I've spent a good deal of time thinking about various aspects of the things I need to fabricate and procure, and I'm beginning to get a handle on it now.
And when it's done, it should be a reasonable facsimile of it's former glory, but saddled with rider of significantly less talent than the former pilot of old #98, Mike Krynock.
Back to work, but some pics soon.....
