I got stuck into striping the XR down and giving it a good scrub and thourough soaking in wd 40. The guy i bourght it off told me it had been ridden on slat flats around kalgoorlie for years and it definately shows. I'm expecting more than a few scized bolts to deal with. A few hours later and this is what it looked like.[IMG]http://

The bike had been sitting out the back of a shed for a year and wouldn't run. A strip down of the carb revealed it was full of crap and also a few small o rings and a spring were missing. The inlet manifold fell apart and was set rock hard also. Another trip to the wreckers and a good clean up later it was ready for a test run.[IMG]http://
