    First bike = first build

    So, I have never owned a motorcycle before, but I got the bug this past summer. I saw a ratty little bike buzzing around Madison and ended up moving into the neighborhood the guy lives in. I saw the bike sitting by his garage and thought it looked cool. Pretty simple bobber, rigid struts etc...

    XS Winter Project

    I'm new here and figured I'd post some pics from one of my bike projects. I rescued this bike out of my friends back yard. It had been sitting there for about 15 years. It was mostly original. The engine had been replaced but that was about it. He had the original engine and the title and...

    Things you appreciate in your garage besides bikes and tools

    Hello. For some time I have had 1000 questions about "how to do this, and how to do that". I´m starting to get fed up with myself:laugh: So as a little side track I figured it would be fun to see what we XS riders have in our garages besides all the tools, bikes, oil and all that kind of...

    79mm pistons???

    Hello there! After getting rid of all the carbon on my 750 pistons I can see this numbers at the pistonhead. This pistons mesures 79mm and I´m confused since the 750 pistons you buy from Mikes or Heiden Tuning or whatever seems to mesure 80mm. Any inputs?? Thanks/BigBoreSwede

    a weird lull in building energy, and some progress but ugly welds

    Did you ever get to a point in your project where you just really ran out of steam for awhile? Well I have that....big time. But given a warm day, I went back at it today some. What I did was grind down the bullet end of a couple of bungs so they were a bit thinner, and shoved them into the...

    79 Tracker Progress.

    Trying to post pics, hope it works. So far, I have made some progress, bike runs great. I am not loving the yellow, added some graphics just to try to break up the yellow. I am going to downsize the side number plates, WAY down. Just picked up a much smaller Sportster headlight. Re-built forks...

    I'm stuck on pegs! Any ideas?

    Hey Six-Fifters, I'm building a 650 hardtail and I'm kind of stuck. I can't seem to think of any good idea for pegs. :banghead: The stock part of the frame where the front pegs mounted are obviously now gone, so that idea is out. I'm not over the top about forward controls because most of...
