Yea I just got it as part of a package deal with a 89 xr600r. Not too sure if restoring it is what I'd like to do. Is it really that rare? I can't find any information on it online!

It runs pretty smooth. Rides a lot better than my xr600. It takes a few kicks but she fires up. Probably took a good 7-8 kicks yesterday when I fired her up

I got a 1991 fc501 Malcolm Smith Edition as part of a trade.

I rebuilt the motor and had to find some parts for its chassis.

Some places will tell you a part is no longer available. Then call some place else and they have it or have the generic part that replaces the piece. You have to have patience when looking for older Berg parts.

I look at the older Bergs as a bike you ride sometimes and don't abuse. The bike will also stir peoples interest at the local riding area into what you are riding, which is fun. I would ride it or sell it to someone that will.

I've rode it around a little bit, no trails but it rides and runs really well. It came with another bike (which is what I wanted) so I do plan on selling it. Not sure how to deal with shipping something like this but it's definitely for sale.
