How many can say they got out of Barber this cheap? Really, that's all I bought. To show with my RD 400c.

I got a scale, and weighed dirtbikes. The cr80/xr120 weighed in at 189lbs, about 14lbs heavier than a stock xr100, not too bad for a stiffer frame, and better suspension.

Been Around the Block
Haven't been around much (yet), but thought I'd post a few shots of a 10 year sleeper that a guy spent some money on and then dropped. (I'll pick it up...when the temperatures fall off a bit in central Arizona)...

A really clean CB750K5. Just in case I'd like to go back to "original" configuration, everything was included (even non-powdercoated wheels) except the 4 into 4 exhaust.

This one is a very clean survivor and I am happy to have it in the "collection".

wow!!!! very nice and sweet, how much was it? looks like you got a good deal, money is just money, that 750 i imagine will steadily go up in value like they have been!

Thanks Fellas. I'm obviously all for cutting up bikes into cool cafe racers, but this one will stay mostly stock or at least a no cut retro-mod something or other. This one really speaks to me. Picture this, but not restored, just cleaned up. Id hold onto all the stock wheels and forks etc in case I ever wanna make a bunch of money on it by selling it too a purist boomer ;)View attachment 231137View attachment 231136
Thats good, honestly anyone who cuts up or heavily mods a XS1 or even 2 is crazy! those bikes are just sooo nice stock. There are many yamaha xs650 standards or specials that if they are rough then ok. But man a XS1 is just just sweet with those chrome side covers and stuff.

LOL - this was my 'before' bike. But to be fair mine was in rough shape, had a later year motor etc.

After waiting over 3 years, I finally pulled the trigger on a new MacBook.

Smooooth.

the after looks pretty good TBH! still think you could have saved the XS1 and found a newer year XS beater.

In hindsight I wish I had, primarily because the 72 frame was a pain in the ass to fit later year 35mm forks to. When I bought the bike I knew nothing of the XS changes over time and didn't know the steering tube for example changed length. Took a bit of work to fit the later triple tree/stem to the earlier frame.

I had an XS2 engine briefly, plan was to fit it into a completely different frame. Tim convinced me to see if there was anyone around who was restoring one.
Ended up selling it to a bloke in Sydney who needed an engine to complete his XS2 Resto.

Congrats! I've been using MacBooks for several years now... Once you go Mac you'll never go back.
