Jeez, I'm a lucky bastard!

A few months after buying back my original '88 DR750 back, my KX500 that I got new in 1984 popped up for sale!
The deal has been done and in a couple of weeks it will be back in my shed once again.

Here it is in the 80's


And here it is now.


Plenty of work to be done, but how lucky am I to be able to get back 2 bikes that I owned 25 years ago!

When I sold the KX in 1987, I kept the tank. Then, 13 years later, my shed burned down and took that tank with it.

That is one beastly looking bike. I love it!

I had a KX80 from a similar year when I was a teenager, that I bought as a basket case and fixed up. Someday I like to get another vintage 2-stroke...

Congrats on the find(s).
