Just about everyone who has 'old' motorbikes will have multiple projects on the go or on hold. At present I have 2 XS650's in pieces for ? yrs, 5 CB360's, (4 in pieces),  Pontiac Firebird Formula 400, plans for a 'big bore modified GSX600F engine and a 1982 YZ250.
Also have another XS650 I'm not taking apart until something gets done. Seems pretty normal to me ;D

Yip, I think you nailed it there, ha ha  :)

I've been off the forums for a year or so but I'm working on a 1982 Honda xl185, an 1981 kz440, and a 1975 jeep cj5, and a 1985 pontoon boat which has taken most of my time lately.
1969 CB350 (barn bike) (sold)
1981 KZ440LTD (for sale)
1982 xl185.

XL185 is a great little bike. I actually entered an Enduro with a Yamaha 400 but sold it and had to ride a modified XL185. It was really wet and muddy so I came second in 'open class' (over 250) on the XL. Kinda cheating I guess but I rode the hell out of it.Thinking back, I used to get stuff done in days rather than the years it takes me now I'm 'senior'
