So what I have for sure and I know dierctly is the following:

Performance Machine correct 5/8 master cylinder
Performance Machine correct 162 X 2 rear caliper (+ rebuild kit + all single pieces that could be changend)
Performance Machine correct rear caliper bracket
Two 13" new front Rotors not original Performance machine but identical looking ones.

These are the items I know exactly that I would be able to sell.

Probably I maybe also would have a set of orginal Morris Mag wheels already complete overworked and gold powder coated for sale but I need to drive to my powder coater by next week to check that back exactly.
But I will say this directly these wheels are not cheap or available for that money you posted the links.
These wheels are professional overworked and than powder coated with a very special and expensive gold powder coating.

Make sure I'm reading it right in the threads. The wheels are the following

19x2.25"Harley 5-bolt pattern Morris Mag front wheel
18X2.5" Harley 6-bolt pattern Morris Mag back wheel

Using a Harley 5-bolt pattern wheel on the rear is fine, as the more accurate 6-bolt wheels are very few and far-between."

Yes what you read is correct but all the 18" rear wheels you could find these days are 18X2.15 and also the 5 bolts rear wheels are exactly the same rare as the 6 bolts now as the ones you could find now are 6/8 bolts. Oh and on the front wheels you would have the correct dimensions with 19X2.25 but only one hub is correct the other one (rotor side) has also the wrong hub so you have to get the correct hubs too.

PS: So would you be interrested in the parts I have to offer?

Just picked up a 82 Honda FT500 Ascot for $700. Not bad

Everyone thinks I'm crazy to take the motor out of the FT500 and putting it in the dirt bike.

Nice bike and let the others think what they will as that is absolutly the right way.
BUT please remember you also have to change the complete electric not only the motor as i said before as there are differences between the XL500r and FT-500 also if the engines are allmoost identical.

Yup I know that. The XL only has 5v system witch right now doesn’t work anyway. The FT has a 12v system witch is perfect to run the electronic.

Good stuff, you are on the fast track! Thanks for sharing all the photos.

Wish I could find a 84 Honda for $1,000. All I find are $2,000 or more, and most of the time they are worn out bikes.
