My turn

I have many, many threads here that I look back on to learn from. I have a couple threads I know will help someone someday in this TX/XS650 community. I don’t intend to ever outdo nor imply that I have the Star-Black XS650 b or XS650 E color match code mixes in tact.She’ll let y’all know if I got it right and wrote it down on a knapkin and saved it.Love my old twins and single thumpers.2017 Buick Envision Code.✅🤝

My
gutted,lightened-up 447 display/parts motor is now all blinged up and ready to go loosely back together.Its been a great way to reafilliate myself with the XS650 motor torn down.I’ll be using it set in the frame when needed for a visual while doing more needed frame and other modifications.It’ll be in and out several times before completion,no doubt.

A whole weekend to work on this project and get it where I needed it to be and no complaints from the household activity director?Yikes!A hunch the next few weekends won’t include much motorcycle play time.🤣👍

That would make an interesting base for a floor lamp.

My first “72” fresh off the track. I still have the glass. I was young when I painted like this. I was all about learning.Still am.✅
