Default Bring a bike back from storage/partsdom..(long)

So,, years ago when I bought my 03 250ec I kept my 97 and used it to putts around the yard and as a loaner bike.. after the first year it became a rolling parts bike.. then a not so rolling,, well not under its own power.. After my auto wreck I sold my 03 so I wouldnt be tempted to ride,, the Dr.s said it would be a long time till I could ride again.. They gave me the ok to ride street,, so I got a KTM 625 sxc and did easy trail,, now I'm pushing that beast thru our regular enduro trails.. so much for a "street bike".. Decided to bring my 97 back out of retirement.. replaced the carb, cleaned out the fuel tank, put an exhaust on it for now.. FMF which I'm not a fan of,, would like a GG stamped pipe,, if anybody would like to trade,, the FMF is off an 02 or 03.. and just a fyi my messico for a 99 fit my 03 better than my 03 pipe did.. go figure.. Slid on my fankensilencer,, a PC ISDE for a KTM 380(96) as the stock silencer doesnt fit either.. The bike has a BBR alum subframe for a KX 250.. I have shifting issues I do not remember having when it was last put away. I'll pull the cover off and see whats up.. I have a G2 throttle to install that I got for x-mas 2 years ago and never got to install on my 03. need a computer.. trailtech maybe? Has mostly black plastic now,, kx rear fender and side panels and six days black shrouds.. no headlight and a leftover 01 red fr fender with the clear coat.. looks odd..
I need an oversized tank,, but its a 97,, has a tall part of the cyl head and havent found one that has a cut out for this.. Maybe make one,, gotta learn to tig someday..
Need to fix the rear shock,, or hope it fixs itself.. has a slight leak at the shaft.. it was rebuilt 1/2 a season before it was retired.. it has a clear honey like oil drip.. I will most likely be taking this to have serviced again.. And the forks,, I'm hoping to get a set of 45 inverted GG zokes.. I have a set of husky zokes and they seam like they will take too much to get to work.. I should just get some WP's but,, never really liked them that much and if I'm going to convert might as well get ones I want.. Anyone need 45 conventional parts??
Hope to post some pics,, trying to figure how to do it from my phone,,
Any advice or questions, concerns or just comments welcome..
