So don't get angry i am choppin this bike, if you do oh well. its mine not yours LOL. I also have a 1982 Goldwing that has been modified a bit. Any way i will post some pics, or try too.

Cool I once saw an awesome GT500 on ebay with a description that was the ultimate negative sell and I've liked these bikes ever since.

2 stroke chops. cool. Just one thing your nice clean pipes aren't going to give you the best tune without an expansion chamber in them?

I have wondered about that, trying to get a nice tune from it. its on the list of think abouts.

I had a 72' T500 that was bone stock and in great shape. Bought it for $400 and only had to put the motor back together. Then sold it for $1200.

Remember the movie Waterworld where Dennis Hopper is the leader of the 'smokers'. I miss Dennis Hopper already. He was such a badass in what could have been one of the most underrated movies of the 90's.

Oh, and the world needs more chopped 'smokers'. Looks like a great project.

I personally love waterworld, just watched again for the millionth time, and i miss Hopper as well.

Slight update, went threw the wiring a bit to see if we could get the motor running for tearing into it to far and looks like the coils are bad, went and tracked down a used one that seemed to test normal. See what happens with it.

Last night after going threw wires and looking threw a diagram my friend and i got the bike to fire, it ended up being coils. We rounded up some car coils to test it, LOL. But it ran for a second off ether. i'll try to post the vid soon.

So i have spent the past couple weeks in my spare time to get things stripped off the bike, and so far so good. This is the way she sits right now. A couple more details and out comes the saws all!!!! :)
