’74 tx650a quick and cheap


I got the bike about a month ago for 300 bucks.  I tore the carbs apart and got it running like new.  I went with the TC bros hardtail.  By the way, TC bros is very cheap and fast shipping.  I used TC bros headlight with a custom bracket.

I decided on TC bros drag bars turned downward.  It took about two weeks after the hardtail was on to complete.  I plan on painting it this winter and I’m thinking about black with gold trim.  Let me know what you think about it.

    Love the Evel Knievel picture in the background, that would be a cool color scheme for you xs, although it may be considered sacrilegious to some. Black and gold foil would look awesome. I wish they would at least put up 4 pictures of every bike. I know sometimes the quality isn’t always in the photography. Great Bike.

    Agree with fanoboss on all aspects. 6 weeks is a quick turnaround time to ride.
