Hi Esteban ,
Well thanks for your interest I do what I can but to be fair the XT is so simple it makes thing very easy...
This one has a bit of history which makes me want to keep it.
Bought in Paris in 2002 at 8000 km from a policewoman!!, I move to Ireland where I now live.
For 10 years... off road in Ireland, touring scotland, wales, france, every day commute, week end....
The bike was stolen once in Dublin and recovered 3 month later...by the police.
Then stolen another time a year later or so in front of my house !!!!! and found I it one day after in a field 500 metres away.
Then I left Ireland for one year and left the XT in a yard for a year but the cover burst so was left under the element rain, winter etc... but after new battery started straight away.
I crashed it once left the mountain road on one side of the road there was the moutain , I wasn't paying attention..and you know it's dangerous....driving your motorcycle with the cliffs the turn and stuff, was doing only 60km/h and sudenly I made a sharp turn there was a 2 metres ditch,I took off flew into the air and landed in the field I was lucky land flat on by belly the bike was burried halfway in the ditch and survived and so did I not a scratch , was very lucky
So in the end after 110000 km one evening it died on the road returning from work the rust got the best of the electrical and just sopped ! the fork was leaking, the front head bearing were shot, the rear shock too the brake disc worned out and so were the swing arm bearings...the silencer cracked, and the rear part of the frame!
the seat vinyl opened, the carb intake leaking... the engine though still going strong not a problem making smoke... at start but ok
I was looking at Kedo to rebuild engine but even though German work will be perfect, it's bit steep for my wallet. Bring the frame for powder coating, carbs for ultrasound cleaning....
But I thought f**** it will do it myself, spray can for powder coating, petrole +tooth brush sand paper elbow grease for sand blasting
Bought some polishing kit from the internet to work on engine...so I hope will get good before after picture...an all other rusty bits
Valve work soon...will ad some pic tomorrow.
