I bought a brand new leftover 1995 GS500E back about '97, with a few scratches and a couple of dings on it, but no miles. I should NEVER have sold that bike. I only had it a couple of years and wanted something else. Stone stock, including the exhaust. Would buy another in a heartbeat.
If you're going to make a dual sport out of it, what is the fairing for? I still remember the good old days when dual sports did not have fairings. I still don't have a clue why they do now. Real dirt bikes don't.
