XR500R Sale (1984)

Now I'm new to this so please bare with me. I have an 84 XR500R that doesn't run. I would like to get it off my hands. I will take it apart and sell it part by part if I have to, but it needs to disappear. If you or anyone you know is interested in any parts or the bike please let me know.

The bike has a head and tail light, all the plastic is intact just faded. Both tires are shot but the rims are good. Carbs have been replaced. It appears that there is no compression so I'm guessing the rings and possible the valves.

I have read about people rebuilding them and looking for parts. So if you can help me out, thank you very much.

Sorry, I didn't know where else to post it. Maybe you could tell me so I don't look like that much of an idiot?

If I part out the bike, the parts will be price according. If somebody wants is all $500.00

Those old XRs are bringing surprising $$ in "restored" condition. Someone will surely take it off your hands.
