Hall's Cycles had white fenders so went with white for now, so it will have that modern Austrian Husky 80s vintage color look.

PS I put the fuel valves on the wrong side......and sealed them into the tank in sort of a semi permanent manner.....so time to redo...

Oh and I got the plate assy and plate mounted up, so more DS motivation. Still need a bit of wiring set up, but I think I am fairly solid, if not it will reflect badly upon me......Aviation Electrical systems engineering/installation/modifications etc etc since the mid 80s......

96.5% done, very happy with how she's come back into being, scratches, dents and surface corrosion remain along with up grades and new stuff. I have a bunch of spares in my box including a full set of YEL plastics and other stuff, so I can dress her up differently if and when I want.

Looking good! I'm jealous of that cushy looking seat :)

The Technosel seat is icing on the cake, even though its 90s/2000s vintage it is still perfect, plush but firm, not all blown out. Just shows a little faded age. It was a brilliant bonus E Bay find. Most of the MXGP/World Enduro guys used Technosel back in the day.

Shes 99.5% done and running headlites work. tailight needs connection, brakes need bleeding, skid plate needs re bending and fitting, suspension needs sag setting (wow it's 90mm race sag on these) and maybe a couple other bits. But OA she's done. Will keep my eyes peeled for a trailer/truck it in DS ride. I am not commuting on this bike.

Sounds good Brian, I will need a few or more confidence rides to verify good function of the overall package. Again she still needs a few dial in measures, one of which is worth mentioning, Chassis Lube- the swingarm linkage is loaded with zerk fittings for easy external grease gun lubrication of all the bearings in the suspension and swing arm shaft, this was always a good addition on these bikes.. 

When set up correctly and ridden in proper form (read Euro enduro style) These TE (350/410/610) machines are super competitive (I think still fully in the game with modern equipment).
