    Looks great and still a bargain at that price for the quality.

    New to Me- 1981 XS400

    I would say you did good on your purchase, I paid $600.00 each for both of mine and yours looks considerably nicer than either one of mine. It's weird but, bikes bring good money around the PNW if they run. I mean it's hard to find a runner for under 5 or 6 hundred.

    1969 Yamaha TD-2 GP race replica build

    Cool, and can't wait to see the progress with the machine. I did a little mock up with the tank but, have not found my direction yet. Haven't had a lot of time for the other bits and I think the first order of business is maybe try out the mufflers. Been riding mine to work on the nice days though.

    New Indicator with cafe look

    Maybe you could tape if off and black that out or find some wood-grain contact paper to cover up the HONDA logo. Looks sleek and simple.

    I also like the fact that you didn't use a boring flat trailer style rear fender. Your looks more like a 36 Ford spare tire cover band, I have a few kicking around. Looks aggressive.

    When you lowered the rear, did you just relocate the top of the rear shocks forward? And are they the stock shocks? Looks easy enough. I want to do one of mine up in that style. And maybe in green, OD, Flake or really been kickin around British racing green.

    Bike starts only sometimes

    I have one that if it sits for more than 2 days it won't start at all. No electric start, kick only. Now if I get a buddy to push, it'll start right up in 2nd gear and when it warms up for a few minutes, you can go and kick start it in one kick almost every time. It will start like that all the...
