    Old KZ650 I picked up cheap. Had sat for 20-30 years.

    Made it run, painted it and now it's my son's first bike. He rides it almost every day.

    Here's my KLR the day I picked it up.

    [​IMG]

    And here it is today. I repainted it with textured desert spray and added progressive springs front and rear, 14t sprocket, re-jet, a rim lock, braided brake lines, USB/12v charger, IMS pegs, gel filling under the stock seat vinyl, Barkbusters and Wolfman bags with the Wolfman side racks.
