Project Bike: Dad's XT500 - Up and running!

Another update on the restoration. Dad got the bike up and running and it sounds pretty good for a 40 year old bike. A bit of ticking on the top end so were going to look into the grub screw mod to the rocker box to counter the effects of a worn rocker pivot bore. Cant wait to hear what it sounds like with a new higher flowing exhaust later on in the street tracker phase. Damn it looks good!
