This was my second project that i picked up last year. It was a little ragged looking and all i did to it was clean it up and throw some new paint on it. I have a 3rd XS that will be a ground up build so i had to sell this one to get the funds for number 3. I was surprised that it sold 3 days after listing it.
I didn’t make any money but at least i learned a little more and freed up enough money to rebuild the 77’s engine and have the frame hardtailed. As for the 79 pictured, has a freah top end, suicide shift with foot clutch, which i never mastered. i prefer the good ole hand clutch and foot shift.
I still have the super clean red baron that may end up as an old school cafe racer unless i can find a buyer for it as i would like to have the cash for a springer front end and new wheels and brakes for the 77 since it will be the one that i build from the ground up and will keep in the family.
