You are a fortunate guy!

Thanks!! Though I have to wonder about my sanity considering how hard it was to get original parts for the SL90's - those 1 year only models can be a real pain (and the value of the individual parts exceed the whole bike by orders of magnitude). It's so nice to have a bike (the SR500)with a what seems like a huge amount of availabke OE and aftermarket parts!

You can see why I question my sanity by viewing these before photos:

My blue Sl90 before I restored it:

Rear fender is now complete (except for re-plating). Here's the difference between the fender lengths:

Also, I installed lower handlebars, smaller turn signals, rectangular mirrors, and powder coated the gas tank "wet black" (yes, a gas tank can be powder coated after holding fresh gasoline without blowing up the oven). I still need to change out the horn and cook up some tank graphics, though I do like the plain black tank. The side covers are off for refurbishing...

Fellas:

As you no doubt have read, this forum is being replaced with the new vBulletin version.

I would please ask you to register there and then continue your excellent thread here: http://www.sr500forum.com/vbforum/uploa ... /forum.php

This forum will be closed very soon. ;)

Thanks,

Yep,

Read it and registered. Unfortunately, the search engines keep popping this forum up. I'll need to set up to default to the new forum (though it would be handy if this forum would automatically redirect). Sorry about the post!

The url www.sr500forum.com does re-direct to the new one.

I can't very well redirect this exact url from this folder though or you and the rest of us will never see this forum which is to be used as an archive again. ;) :D
