It was a good weekend man. While I'll admit it was hard to see the ardee go, I know you'll get the bike done the way it deserves and way quicker too. LolDid a big horse trade deal with Hurco over the weekend. Nothing like having friends and bad habits.
Pic 1- Kawasaki Bighorn 350: potentially locked up. Comes from cxman via North Carolina (There’s also a CB500 survivor in the pile from him).
Pic 2- Yamaha IT200: runs, but a PO welded the shifter to the shift shaft. Needs plastic and tank.
Pic 3- Honda XL250r: runs, but needs seals and mostly gone through. The tank has dents, but it’s good enough to run. I’ll probably seek out a mint tank and swap them out when trail riding. This comes via Checkered Past Cycles in Galesburg, MI. After my street titled 1987 XR250r was stolen, Chas and Ted sent this XL south to save a guy in remission.
Pic 4- Honda XR250r: this is a roller that came with two sets of plastic and a tank. Searching for an engine.
Pic 6- Forgot the crown jewel to this trade! I sent a mostly finished CB350 to Hurco for his sidecar and he sent me his pile of RD/TZ/RDLC 350. I’m already building this bike. LOL

Just looked back and I started the build in June of 2016 lol.
Here's the gem end of the deal. Soon to have a sidecar mounted to it.
