XR500 Steering Stem

This is how I grafted later model forks onto my old 1979 Honda XR500. I machined a new upper bearing seat, and had a friend TIG weld it for me. It allows me to use the longer steering stem and tapered bearings of the 1986 CR500, and it helped out with my steering geometry a little.
