I haven't updated in a while; I've been busy sorting out the wheel situation and a few other things.

Recent additions have been:
Blue Slip
Rego
Trail Tech Voyager
Wheels and spacers to make them work
Tidy up bits and peices


Hopefully from here on in its just a matter of refining her.

Took a few pics yesterday after a run around the suburbs testing the speedo and GPS, hope you enjoy



Cheers,
Scotty.

Good steady progress and an awesome result!!

Lesson Learnt

My lesson's been learnt, so just wanted to mention to any prospective old XR 'fix-er-up-er' that inspections to ALL frame welds must be carried out PRIOR to powder coating your frame.
I visually checked mine, and it seemed ok. I'm now onto fixing the second engine mount, and getting the side stand tab welded - again.

Scott.
