I gave this morning frame and subframe at the welder to finish the job.
He told me that I will get it back tomorrow but after a few hours he call me to come pick it up!
I have it in my garage but I didn't have the time to take pictures. The welds looking good! I will try to post some pictures tomorrow

Cheers Robbo! With cans the result would be beter with my hands. Haven't paint anything with spray gun before. The subframe is a mess but it isn't visible at the pics. When I get back to the bike I will show you. I just hope I can fix it with out to spray it again. But I have my doubts about that =D

I hope so. The bigger chalenge will be instaling the electrics.
There is no much space to hide the relays, rectifier, battery etc.
I could make a box to place all those staf between the engine and shock, but I have to instal the carbs and see with how much space I will end up.

Leroy.
I once had an 81 XT 500. Still have some parts left over, if you run into something you cannot find.
Parts (What I can think of right now)
1.) Complete front end & wheel
2.) Exhaust from Motor to end can.
3.) Stock air-box & battery tray.

I know shipping to Greece would be $$$ but if ya can find this stuff it's yours for price of shipping.

Beez.

I like your willingness to make small adjustments for optimizing the visual appeal.

Might look cool to hit the wheel weights with some matching black paint.

Coming together very nicely!
