Names seth i bought a 81 yamaha xs with a love for old yamahas and old school style The bike i found as my first was hardtailed and raked with a keg as a electrical box with drag bars and forward controls already. With this being my first onroad bike i wanted something with somewat start. I drove 3 1/2 hours to pic up the bike met the guy and he said all it needed to run was a tune of the carbs. when i got there it was clear the pics i was sent were def a few years old and the bike aged alot. Not knowing alot about the bikes i bought it cuz i relly wanted it, got it home and did alot of reading and tore the bike down i found alot wrong. The whole ignition and charging system was bad, tank rusted, low compression, and cheap forward controls so the bike was stripped to frame and wheels. I did alil research and found a 77 xs 650 cheap and ran. Got that bike home sripped it and cleaned the engine. I orderd a new pma/pamco kit from mikesxs.com and alot of body and eletrical stuf from tcbroschopper.com. Got all the parts in it felt lik christmas and a new start to the bike after being burned. Heres some pics of it from start to know.
