Kate’s 1977 Bike

kates-1977-xs650-chopper-4I bought the bike and it wasn’t taken care of good this winter. Engine was shot, carbs were gummy, tank rusted out, copper finish was all green.


I fixed it up, put a new 750 big bore kit from mikes xs, put a better alternator of hugh handbuilts, cleaned the tranny, fixed the carbs, fixed the forks.


Now it runs tip top and another man’s neglect is another man’s treasure.
