Nice! I had (I think) an 84 that I bought new. It was the dual carb year. (I've had a lot of XR/XL's. The bright blue and white year. Solid slug of a bike. Yours must be MUCH nicer. I know the forks would help a bunch, how is the rear?
Other than the E start will the NX motor gain you anything?

NX 650 motor will give bullet proof shift gears (4 pins instead than 2) and a single carb. it's for a customer willing an electric starter.
rear and front suspensions ar not 'state of the art' but their behaviour is very good for the performances of this thumper!
