    Wanted - Mufflers

    I have a set of stock mufflers off a '76. They are not in too bad of shape. One of them has a loose baffle inside. I have read a post while back on fixing that. I can take pictures and send if you are interested. Georelle

    I had a bike given to me that was obtained this exact way. Unfortunately not an XS 650. The clean up company found a 78 Honda CM 185. The owner of the company gave it to a friend of mine and he gave it to me. I submitted a title request to the South Dakota DMV, They checked the background and...

    For Sale - '76 Softail Bobber.

    Welcome Robbo. The only thing I might change if I was to do it again is the top rear shock mount. I think I would weld a U bracket on top of the rear frame then just bolt the shock to that. I welded a pipe to the top of the frame and then welded a nut inside of that to bolt the shock to. Georelle

    For Sale - '76 Softail Bobber.

    Thanks for the compliments. The front end is stock. The only mods I did was cut the tabs off the fork lowers that aren't needed and got rid of anything else not needed. I cut the tabs off with a grinder and sanded them smooth. Then I just gave them a brushed look with a green 3m pad. Real easy...

    New guy, 1980 Home Today!

    Nice. That exhaust is pretty cool too. I would probably start with rebuilding the carbs. It is going to need it sooner or later any way. Georelle

    Thinking about downgrading to a VX800.

    Hey Classic. I don't have the VX800 but I do have an 2002 VZ800 Marauder. I really wasn't too familiar with the VX800 until I googled it after reading your post. The style of bikes is different but I am sure the motors are basically the same. I love the Marauder the engine runs smooth and has...

    Welcome. Looks like a good score. That is a pretty good place to start from. Check it all over good then do as you said and tear it down and rebuild it. Sounds like you have the bug, I can relate. Have fun Georelle

    Need your help to get my chopper running right again.

    I am with RG on this. With straight pipes and pod filters you should not be running stock jets. You probably need to go a couple sizes bigger. What do your spark plugs look like?

    Disassembling '78 forks

    I guess I did get lucky. My '76 does not have the 17mm socket inside. the top of the internal part is round with a flat spot on either side.

    Disassembling '78 forks

    If you have access to an air impact wrench that works the easiest. You don't need to hold the inside tube. I took an old spare allen wrench the correct size and cut it off long enough so it would reach the bolt on the bottom of the fork then I put a socket on the impact that fit the allen wrench...
