Aahh, the only other XT i have seen with a grab rail at the back , i have trawled thousands of photos and not seen a single other with it , i thought it might have been custom made, what year is yours ? Seeing that i am not personally putting the bike together the mech is gonna sort every little bit that needs to be coated. Weird thing, i thought powder coating was only black , but the mud guard - a crisp white - nice.
Yours started its life with you a little rougher than mine. Mine just started wasting away under a perishing car cover, under a car port for 8 years . The elements did enough damage like that to let me know that that is why i am aging so fast under this African sun !
