Re: Wanted: Electric start MT500, or MT350

Hi Cato
I have a HD 500. It was s 350 but had a brand new 500 motor fitted 28,000km ago. Recent chain sprockets brake pads and German tyres. There are photos on this site of my bike under the name Korky . I might be willing to sell at a fair price. Please let me know if you are interested. Korky.

I have warn out a Metzle...
