Small bit of self-promotion: CR500 front end for sale

After re-reading thread and looking at the donor front end more closely, I just realized that I have a very similar if not identical front end sitting on a shelf in my garage. I believe it is from a 1989 CR500. It came off a project street tracker. In all honesty it is pretty whupped; leaking seal, compression was super soft, but I believe all the parts are there: wheel, brake system, forks, triple clamps... If anybody is interest, PM me.

Sweet thread and sweeter bike.

Ride on,
Jake

Updates?

Hmm, 6 months a good time frame to ask for an update since the last post? I always have had a soft spot for a R65 as it was what I wanted, but a new CB750K is what I could afford in 1978. After seeing this thread, I may have to look around for nice fixer and see what can be made into a ds. I have thought about doing a CX ds, but the boxer looks cool, too. Not like a R65GS is going to show up anytime soon since only 1,727 were produced.

Yes! We need an update ... or simply a few new pictures!

Love the exhaust! How easy was it to fab? It looks like you have a 38mm coming out of the collector with 2 38mm's going in ... do you think this is sufficient for two heads? Any loss of power or such?

Thanks!!!

Very cool build thread.


Apart from the obvious size of the donk, is the rest of the bike the same as the R80/100s? The 65's are pretty cheap compared to the bigger bikes but is the weight the same?
