    And so it begins.......

    This poor, abused '74 XS650 is going to be the basis for a cafe racer in the early 60's British style. I just drug it home today. It's a good thing I was already planning on replacing everything.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    The engine is stuck<img src=icon_smile_blackeye.gif border=0 align=middle>. I'm trying to soak it free. I was already planning on a 750 kit. The gas tank will probably be ditched in favor of an XS750 tank. Will I spend more on it than it's worth??? Why of course! Isn't that what you're suppossed to do?<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
