    The frame is gone by I still have most of the parts and the engine, that has been opened up. The starter isn't available, only because I bought the kit to replace the brushes and it has been taken apart. I don't have the painted side covers. I have the tank, but I can't find the key.

    Please email me your want list! Located in St. Paul, MN

    Hey, you got the caps from the side of the frame?

    No - those went with the frame.

    I'm looking for a replacement tank for a 1982 XS400 Seca and I think the 1983 tank would work. Is it possible to get the gas cap off without the key? And how rusty is it?

    You have the pickup coil / governor?

    I think so. Can you point me towards a picture of them?

    Just so this board knows, I did send Alex the tank, plus the airbox cover, plus the petcock.

    It’s inside crankcase cover and looks like this pic

    Well, I don't have good news Carter. I've been unable to remove the screws holding that crankcase cover down. I got two out, put on some penetrating oil, and used an impact driver, but they just wouldn't budge. When I really forced it, a couple of screw heads stripped. So that's the end of it in my book. If you know anyone in St. Paul who wants to come try it, they are welcome to the whole motor for free. :-(

    Well that stinks. Might be able to drill em out. Had to do that on a 750 maxim I had

    Do you still have the front brake caliper? I'm searching for that and the side panels.

    No, sorry. Those are gone.
