This started out as a pile of parts bought from a widow of a very serious XS devote from the early days. He was into the drag scene here in South Florida. I do have his methanol bike in the back, as it sat from the early 80s when it last went down the strip.
I plan on getting it running and rolling again someday when I have the time and funds. In the meantime I built this between other projects. I took the dimensions he had for the dragster but left the suspension. Punched out the motor, smoothed out the ports and spent lots of time cleaning, polishing and painting.
I have another build lined up but I promised my girlfriend that I would finish painting the house that I started 2 years ago before I roll it into the shop and begin.
Thanks to all the online support from our XS and motorcycle brothers who helped. Without them and the internet this would have been much tougher to accomplish.
