"it cost $20 to recycle a vehicle battery in my area"

Interesting, Autozone actually PAID me $5.00 to turn mine in.

Don't recycle it, take it back to a battery shop. Most will either pay you or at the least take it for free!

As in the video above, I had already used the disposal kit.  ;)

I think the auto shops charge a fee  because lead recycling is heavily taxed by the government (?)

I spent a lot of time on the front end of the bike. My new brake pads arrived, so I installed them. I modified the front fender for more of a café racer look and also lowered the front down a bit. Next I will fix the carbs so I can get the bike  running !  :D

Here is the video on youtube:

There are some fantastic XS500's on this site if you do a little digging. It's been said many times before, but if you want to have a quality build you need a ton of either time, money, or skill. If you can't afford proper clubmans, scrounge scrapyards for bars off other bikes that might fit. If you have the skills, fab your own. Flipping the bars isn't going to work. I love seing another XS build, so do it right.

You really should slow down a bit. If you need some clubman bars I have a few and will send them to you. Just pay for the ride.
I own a 74 TX500 and love these bikes. Just make sure what you are doing is a safe modification.

I never wanted clubmans. The bars are good as they are.

What I do need is to get the carbs fixed so I can get the engine running and make sure everything works ok
