ERWN SR500 update

It's moving along kicking and screaming every step of the way. 
Tomorrow new brake lines made up and routed, under seat electrical tray & bits mounted, bracket seat pan, (& the Beemer's seat too). The rest of the week, the new carb, air filter & throttle set up arrives ready for installation, shape the seat foam, come up with a tail light and license plate mount. Then  finish cutting, fitting & mounting the tank. Only to tear it all apart again.

I love this bike! It's all I can do to stop myself running out and buying an SR500 right now! Can't wait to see it finished.

Man my thoughts exactly..i sold off most of my stash to keep going in the economy and wound up with a 1969 CL90 when all the SR500's were
going for more than what i had but when finished with the restoration i can re-up for an SR or XT and do it bratstyle...but the MINIMALIST attitude of this bike screams Hot Rod
