Hey everyone, I picked up an 1993 EX500 in pretty rough shape at the beginning of last summer for a project bike and decided to document my progress. Here's the storyline of the complete overhaul, restoration and modifications.
It's a 1993 ex-race bike. It has an FZR600 front end and a 1986 ZX6 swingarm with an FZR600 18" rear wheel. The previous owner lost the ownership and the bike wasn't running when I got it but it would crank. It was a bit of a mess but I ended up getting the ownership for it and started the rebuild process.
Any feedback is appreciated!

Step 1: Step 1: Teardown
The first thing I needed to do was tear the bike down to see exactly what I was working with. It was at this point that I realized how much of the bike wasn't stock.
