xs 650

Got a big box full of parts delivered the other day.  Got the exhaust put on, all of the motor mounts are cleaned up and tightened, and wired up the coil and spark plug wires.

Got some new meats coming sometime next week.  Will have more pics when i get the tires mounted and start to get everything back together.

Oh and i finished painting my fender, and started to paint the tank.  Looks like its coming out a bit more orange than i had planned but i can live with it for now.

Motor In!

This past weekend I got the motor into the bike.  Just need to get some wiring in place and an exhaust to see how she runs.  

Motor is bored to 750cc
Oversized Wiseco pistons
3-angle valve job
welded crank

Should have enough power to run a 31 tooth rear sprocket to lower the top speed rpms... This is gonna be a fun bike.... 

Now I have a long list of stuff to buy to go over...

Motor Ready!

Had some time after moving a couple loads of crap over to the hideout.  Got the swingarm mounted, front and rear tire, rear brake caliper, and mounted a temporary set of handlebars.  Ready for the motor to go in now.  Still have a lot of the motor mounts to clean up.  Waiting for paint to dry now... 

New Shop!

Finally managed to get a workspace this past weekend.  Moved some stuff in and started getting to work.   Unpacked my new motor and started to get the frame ready to put the motor in.  Still have a lot of work to do and parts to get.
