    Been lurking for the last couple weeks as I picked up a 79 xs400 about 2 years ago
    I just built a brand new shop in Yardley PA from the ground up
    this took about a year and a half to complete and I have not built any bikes over the last two years. Now that I can finally get to work on something I decided to throw the 400 on the lift and see what happens.

    Shooting for a simple, low budget bobber.
    Mod frame, but keep swingarm.
    small tank
    mini apes
    that's about all I got figured out for now

    I enjoy the forum and look forward to talking with others

    Ohh wow, you have the tools to make this the bionic bike! You can remake it!

    Nicest intro, I have seen in a long time, definitively better than mine! It is looking good! Keep it up!!!

    did some frame mods
    mock up bars
    there was once a time when I could put in a few hours on a project and feel like I actually accomplished something.....not so much now days
