Another Reader ride! Honda CR500!

Joe Byrd (from the previous post) sends in another set of 500cc 2 storke before-and-after build pics but this time with some dirt flavor.

Joe Writes:

Here is my project from last Fall, this fall I have started on an H2A, I think I am up against a bigger project this year. These pictures are my CR500R, I resurrected from a pile of junk from a fellow's shed. I went all the way through the motor and sandblasted, painted, replaced and fixed almost everything else. I fixed the flattened pipe by plugging the ends, filling it with compressed air and heating the dents with an acetylene torch. This works great.

Before and After in about a month.

Thanks Again Joe! Damm that's nice! I've always wanted a big bore dirt bike. KX / CR 500's and YZ465/490's have that certain terrifying qhality that I just souldn't be able to resist.. Oh and keep us posted on that H2!
