I started this thread in the "specials but have since changed the location. Here is the link. http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=31395.msg340149#msg340149 I finally got some pictures of my $100 donor bikes. I am excited to start tearing things apart and begin my Hybrid creation. xs+xt = XTS400 Enduro.

Yeah I thought these bike were a great deal, I know I can sell $100 worth of parts off of them. The decal alone is worth $100...haha. I started stripping the XS400 tonight. It looks so much better (less choppery) already. It lost a ton of weigh too. I am stripping it down to the frame so I can work on mounting the xt swing arm and so I can figure out how hard it is going to be to fit the xt forks on the sx head. I don't think this is a common swap  ;D. I'm thinking about making a whole new fabbed frame in the rear to give the rear suspension more room to compress and to lose some weight. I cant get over how much heavier the XS frame construction is when compared to the xt. I am really glad I have something to work on cuz I aint riding any time soon.....a plow truck just rumbled by as I am typing this.

I think I'm going to stay here now. I want my next cafe to be a 2-stroke.  :)

Sorry this build is moving so slow. I am still in the R&D stage. I did just pick up the rest of my parts included in the $100 xt350 transaction. What a deal I though he just had the fuel tanks, but man he gave me a ton of great stuff. Now I can descide if I want to put the xt suspension on the xs frame or the xs motor in the xt frame. My dad an I just finished my sweet bike bench so now I can work in comfort!

Why can't we all have such deals? And benches. And parts.

Exited to see where this goes!

Mate that's a nice score for sure! And nice work on the work bench, that'll make it tons easier.
 
I really wish I had room for one too but not gonna happen...
