    I got a call from a friend I have not heard from in years. I was on my way to Western NY. from Maine. He asked if I still played with xs 650's. I said yes, and he said do you want 8 more? His wife wants all the bikes he has been picking up over the years out of his barn. I stopped in and looked at them, and there are 7, and a 750 twin that I have never seen before. The only one I could get to, kicked over so that was a good sign.
    I'm going to try and get them this week end. His wife even offered to PAY ME to take them away. I think he wants to give them to me but I will try to pay him something.
    If,and when I get them, I will try to post pics.

    The 750 twin is most likely a TX750 if you accidentally have to leave a bike behind that's the one!

    Wow what a find good for you. YOU aren't married I take it?
    FYI I have a wife AND about 10 XS650's then again she has 5 horses so it's kind of a draw.

    I'd try not to leave any behind, especially that 750. It has great wheels and the swingarm that go right on a 650 and are better than stock.

    Hey Gary, It's my wife that talked me into getting them. I'm a little tight on room, and wasn't sure if I was going to take them all. This will make my total 10 as well. I gotta believe that will be enough.
     
  6. I would keep the bikes and ditch the Wife! Prolly why I am single?!:wink2:

    They're all rough, and the guy I'm getting them from is digging now for all his titles. I'm not so concerned because I live in Maine, and can register one this old with a bill of sale.
    I'm not sure at this point what I want, and don't want. My son has already stated that he wants a bike. He's 14 so i have a little time. If, and when I decide to let some stuff go, I'll post. I'm heading out Wed. to pick the pile up.
