New member,Original owner '78 sr500

Post  TONNYSTARK on Sun 29 Apr - 0:09

Hello forum..Original U.S. owner of a 1978 SR500, bought late during the '79 model year launch ..has 5535 original miles on it...In the midst of a total frame up restore as the rear brake master seeped thru the years and melted some frame paint..have decided to restore totally the old gisha girl with paint,tires, ect,along with some minor racer upgrades such as the KEDO dual feed cam box oiler, carb heat shield and a one tooth drop in the output drive gear for a little perf. boost... the motor internals remains untouched other than jetting and the crank bearing update I performed myself back in '81... I will post from time to time on my endevor's..

Thanks for the interesting forum!!
