Project Bike: Dad's XT500 - Engine Rebuild

$1000 in parts and a couple days of Dad's time later and the engine is all freshened up. It needed a new cam and rocker arms since the exhaust valve rocker wore through the hard surfacing. Also replace the cam chain and piston rings. Its pretty cool you can still get OEM parts for a 40 year old bike. A few parts did have to come from Japan...
I'm getting excited to hear this bad boy run.
