wow $50/clean title is an amazing deal! looks like a fun project. definitely have your work cut out for you. how good are you at wrenching? going by your name, i'm guessing craigslist in alaska won't have too many ex500 tanks but hey you never know. dunno how deep you plan to get into the motor but always worth checking valves on these machines, they tighten up fast as hell. if you spend a few hours on the how to section that covers the usual problems pretty well

I'm decent at wrenching. I do all my own work on my other bikes. But this will be my first rebuild ever. So I guess I will find out how good I am. I will check the valves! Thanks for that
i think you'll be okay then! between decent wrenching skills and the goldmine of knowledge this forum has it shouldn't be that bad. they're old designs so pretty straightforward. saabnut had this amazing thread where he goes through some frame up restorations, can check it out for some inspiration
