Hi All,
Cool site you have here. I've made another post looking for an XS650 to build a cafe racer in the same vein as an early 60's British cafe racer (maybe with a GT750 front brake), but I thought maybe I'd show you what I already have.

'76 RD400 I bought new. Roadraced it a little back in the mid 80's. I've had other bikes along the way, but I think this one will be with me forever. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks for all your kind words on my RD. Concerning the XS I was looking for; I found a '74 about an hour and a half from me. I'm picking it up Sunday.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

no the grinder does not match it needs white somewhere on it to match the bike. I like the bike a whole lot better then the bench grinder .

It a lesson you learn selling on ebay be sure nothing is in the back ground or it will distract from what your selling.

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.
