I bought  this  Bullet 500 used and  rode the hell out of it. Lotta miles and  the motor towards the end of its life when a friend told me of a XS for a hundred bucks on Craig’s list.

I ordered a hard tail from tc bros and start tearing the bike down and found the left frame rail was badly damaged. I located a titled 1979 frame just a couple of hours away so I gave my sons some cash and my car key and sent them on a road trip. Continue Reading →
