That exhaust is spectacular!
Last ride of the year, plate expires today, I can feel the winter weather in the air.
Amazing how well this thing works, needs a little tinkering, but I guess that never ends.
Good to see you and your bike again! I’m happy to hear you’ve been out enjoying It!
I appreciate being able to follow all the threads about the goings on with this group, and the wonderful advice that they give out.
Thanks, Mailman! I had intentions of doing so but I got too wrapped up in the build and had a deadline to hit. I'm working up the gumption to loop back around to all my photos in progress and make a build thread for it.
Thanks, WT! My first attempt at building a full stainless steel system. Pretty happy with how it turned out. (I did the fabrication, had someone else do the finish TIG welding)
I’m gonna give this guy a plug here. For those of you that have Instagram, he has a page there. Search for Andykawaphoto . More photos and other cool bikes. Good stuff.
79 SF-Hanging out with some buddies after a good clean and polish for the winter months. Had this for sale earlier this year but decided to hang on to it for now. Replaced starter gear, wishbone spring, return spring but still have some run over when using the starter. Next stop...check safety relay and replace if needed.
Dang, that's NICE!
Yeah thats a nice bike Stone co! Like the red stripe.
#2 Decal and pin stripe cover up some peeling of the clear coat, so more function than form. Previous owner did a yeoman's job on the paint however, there are a few spots where the clear started to peel and crack. Cost effective way to cover those spots and add a little style, I suppose. Still looking for a good tank to replace this one then I can have some fun with paint experiments with the spare.
Stone Co, nice color choice for that bike.
Was looking through my pictures and don't think I ever shared this here, always thought it was a cool picture though.
car and bike are same year btw,1972
Second pic is my dad with his ‘66
Very nice, love the paint job. Another contender for next years calendar.
That's the most beautiful paint scheme that Yamaha ever put on the 650.
Fantastic restoration 660smc...
That is beautiful, Gary. Man , you've got all the tricks on that on, eh?
This Probably doesn't qualify for the thread... yet.
I just picked up this box stock and somewhat cosmetically challenged '79 XS 650 F...
What a sweet running ride, I'll spend part of the Winter spiffin' her up and post "After" photos in the Spring.
