Hello from Holland
« on: January 30, 2016, 01:00:57 PM »
Hello,In 2014 I bought my first bike, a xs500 to build a brat/tracker bike. It was really cheap and in very bad condition. After a bit of work we got it running. A few months later I bought a second xs500 as a parts bike. This was an unfinished project and some parts were missing. So now I just got my driving license and I really want to finish this bike. The bike I'm building is a '77 and the partsbike is a '76.
This is what it looks like at the moment.

Looking good! Did you paint those rims or powdercoat them?

Thanks! I painted them, I guess powdercoat would be better but I'm on a very limited budget.
