How many kilometres/miles have you put on your XRCR since you converted it tomaso?
I assume it’s finished.

About 12.000km; no it's not finished and maybe it will never be finished; working at the bike and tweaking it is part of the fun.

A rolling project?

Have you kept all the original parts? I have mine stashed all over the shed , the bike might be worth something one day in original condition.

Yes, you're right, it's kind of a rolling project.

Fortunately there are also some other toys that are ridden and driven more often; but the XR is my favorite toy and I don't think I will ever sell it.
Nevertheless I have also kept all the stock parts of the bike; they are stored in boxes.

I was going to trade mine a few years back.. lucky for me the bike shop didn’t want it.. but that was a bit of a compulsive buy thing and I soon came to my senses. It would be hard to part with it.
