finally got time to get it regersted this morning happy0065. took it on its first ride and very happy with it so far,still needs a few little adjustments, clutch was a bit grabby and didn't want to go into neutral easy, but after a few kms it freed up.

make sure you keep a good eye on the temp gauge and water level . 2 of the 3 we had including a near brand new one back in the early 1980s had head gasket woes but my oldest one with the biggest miles and rattles ran faultlessly for hundreds of thousands of klms . they used to say put hylomar on the head gaskets but i found they tended to blow more often with the glue than with out it may have just been coincidence but we only did a few of them . never had to do a head gasket on a 500 though. just keep the water up to it and coolant and it should run forever good luck and enjoy

If it has ever had new head gaskets fitted, it will be worth checking the head bolt torque and tightening them to specs. You undo them one at a time by just 1/8th of a turn then retorqu to spec.
Don't forget to readjust the valve clearance after doing that.
Enjoy.

Cheers, Joe
