    I'll check my local bike scrap yard & see if they have any. I know they have a few CT-90's, but worn't sell the frames without grinding off the SN's.

    I'm in. Looks like a fun trip. If you need another pair of XL500 shocks, I have a set somewhere, packed up in a box in the garage. I'm in the middle of moving but if you need another set let me know and I can probably find them.

    I think the XL125 front forks had leading axles, like in your picture. I think the SL125 front forks did not. Should make it easier to ID them before purchase.
