Those head pipes are my favorite. Out, down, back then a subtle upsweep.View attachment 200348 View attachment 200351 Found this very stock barn find randomly off an old guy who let it go for $500, it took several months he wasnt really intrested at first.
I did things like clean and paint the gas tank, rebuild fork seals, repair oil sump filter, new reg rec etc. To get it running all I really did was fix and set the points and its been purring like a kitten since! Ive put 600 miles on it and love the power and noise!
I have mostly in the past been a big collector of Honda cb350/360 bikes but this is my first XS! It has a very good design and power vs those bikes. Also things like these aluminum shouldered rims, and great designs all around makes it possibly better than Honda bikes of similar years.
