This is my other bike, I use it for road trainings (with semi-slicks)

I changed a few things over the months.
The paint was very badly, so I decided to go paintless with some new decals.

There are some XT '98 parts on it now, I will change it back into full 500LX, and maybe some good canti's.
I'm still looking for the original (straight) fork.
Then a nice black Syncros stem and seatpost would be nice.
Still rides fantasic, very stiff and nervous.

Nice to see one of these.
Had one also. But I think this is a 92 model. At least that's when they were sold in these colours.

Those barends are way to big! Removed them immediately...
The wheels aren't that fancy, just some no-name platic wheels.
These aren't the original ones.
