Summer project

Picked up my summer project a couple days ago.
97 MXZ 583, got a few kilometers on er but cosmetically looks rather nice.
As it sat before I picked it up



In my little shop





I believe the top end was done at one time.





Crank case is full of injection oil, has been sitting several years. I fear the center seals on crank are gone.
The durable old 583 just wanted a rest I guess ;)



Not sure what I am goona doo with it. My initial urge was to mount a 503 or 443 engine in it  ???
I might be needing parts Dave  ;D

I love the 583! MY stx fills up with oil over the summer and smokes quite a bit for the first mile, but after that it's fine all winter. Doesn't bother me enough to tear the motor down when it's still got 150lbs on each cylinder. It's been like that for years!!!
