Black and Gold '79 XS500 Cafe Build/Restor
« on: April 15, 2016, 02:19:40 AM »
 Bought this bike from my yarder engineer, "Butch" when I was on the riggin for $100. Butch drove the crummy and told me how his brother bought it brand new, got hit on it the first ride, sold it to Butch and he only put 2400 miles on it. The carb had gas left in it for 30 years and were toast. I tried to rebuild them with XS650 internals and it didn't work so I got some rebuilt carbs off ebay that works awesome! This page will be the progression of this motorcycle as I bring it back to life.
