    Crush, the bikes looking good mate. Are you gonna strap the battery down at all? It will move around a bit under acceleration/braking and might bang into your fuses.

    leedutcher xsive to the bone!!!

    that battery work for u? ps-1227 right?
  3. Yup, works great so far. Run the high beam all the time and tailight/ brakelight and ignition.
  4. Yeah, maybe a cradle of foam and then a strap, what do u think?
  5. Lost an air cleaner and the fuel line/ filter leaked after ride #2:

    strap up that battery, use pop rivets and make a couple of hooks. use those rubber battery straps you can get them in different sizes!

    year engine size of the elky? if its a trade for a bike, and the elky runs, i would assume its a G-body. hopefully an 83-87 (2 headlights on each side), and hopefully a 4.3 cuz theyll get up more than and just keep goin. i know a bit about them. almost had one, so i read up a little bit.
  12. 85 G body with a 305. Dude inherited it from his mechanic grandpa, it's pretty clean and runs and drives well. Elco prices are all over the board here in socal, but he wanted $2500 for it, which is what I would ask for my xs, so we are both making out ok I think...
