Recently got this 88 EX500 as the goal was to take everything off of my 09 and transfer it over to the 88. However the Dept of MV said there is over $800 of back fees on the bike, and I just can't stomach that. So everything goes.....if not to the forum, then to the junkyard. According to the guy I bought this from, the motor ran but smoked, so figure it needs a rebuild. The carbs are not there. The frame looks fine, as does the swingarm and forks. The 16" wheels are in good shape, the rubber obviously is bad and I will remove the tires. Not sure what aftermarket exhaust brand this is, but it is complete. There is some rust on the pipes but no holes that I saw. The only part not in the picture is the seat, which has bad foam/cover but the pan is okay. Hit me up if you need any of these items. I am in Northern CA but can ship to you. Have a great, safe Memorial Day weekend.
