maybe a wr chassis with a cr500 2 stroke engine in it. that would be fun as a road registrable trail bike.

Great for lugging around the desert. I had it for 4 years and had no problems.
Wished I still had it.
I will insert a picture on here if someone tells me how?

One of my riding buddies has a 1992 WR500. They were only made in 92 & 93, and possibly 94. I have ridden it a few times and have to admit that it is a pretty good bike. It does vibrate alot, but that is to be expected with any big bore 2 stroke. With the wide ratio tranny it is a great desert bike. It has been a very reliable bike so far, it's even on it's original piston and rings. Although I love my 426, I would have no problem recomending a good clean WR500 if you can get it for a good price.
Do your friend a favor and recomend to him to replace that old piston. I've got a spare gear box in my garage with blown cases. I ran the original piston to long.
