Default 1997 joker bike

Some of you know I bought a dirt bike, some don't. I figured I would share my build/ restoration project

So here is my 97 220. It was purchased for $1,000 and sat for years in the last owners garage. As it can be expected, some issues have arisen, and some surprises. What the bike has:
Rad valve
Full FMF exhaust system fatty pipe
Suspension set for my weight

What I have done to it so far:
All new suspension/swing arm bearings
Repackaged silencer
Fix dents in header
New reeds
New hand guards
New pads
New headlight on order
Purple radiator covers
New chain and sprockets

Still have more things I need to do but I will update this post when I do. But all in for my first dirt bike for a new dirt rider, I'm happy

Now just need to learn how to ride it.

if you add the letter "l" (lowercase L) right before the ".jpg" then it will scale it appropriately. Like this: https://i.imgur.com/Y3Q5Gyfl.jpg

Is it still a "mid-life" crisis at age 40?
