    One more before I dropped compression in one cylinder. I'll have to get more pics when it's back together. It always bugged me the engine was the only untouched part. Now it'll be all shiny.

    Not mine (unfortunately), but looked at this pic for a while and realized it had an XS650 engine. Nice build.

    That carb set-up seems less than efficient.

    It's a show bike, I've seen show cars with lots of chrome and go fast equipment but NO crank,rods or pistons.....

    Hi folks,
    just signed up after many years lurking in the wings. Here's my 1980 XS chop. Had her for many a year but finally getting her ready for the road once the winter here in Scotland passes.

    There isn’t a battery and the capacitor is where the starter used to be. Kickstart only.

    I have many photos of it and my TX750A survivor but they are to large to upload. Not sure how else to share them and the videos of them running.

    I haven't seen an '82 since it was new and at the dealer. Congratulations on maintaining both lower covers! Very nice!
