I know what I'll be doing in June. I've been accepted into the "Inappropiate Street Bike Class"....
This class is a mismash of a variety of bikes...you can visit the Sideburn blog..Sideblog...(there is a link over to the right and down ) ....to see some of the bikes that have been entered so far. From a scooter to a Supercharged CR-500, and lots of other interesting machines...Time to get my bike ready.
So..last weekend I bought this Yamaha XS 650 motor from the Busch brothers of Nevada...at a swap meet here in Sacramento. The motor is very clean...and shouldn't take too much to get back to a runner....well, there is the small matter of not having a frame or the rest of the bike...have some ideas for it though...
Lance and Danny
They brought a lot of good stuff....including their very cool Yamaha XS Chopper...which they sold to a gal from the Bay area.. You can go to their blog....which is linked to the right and below...to get a good look at their bikes and other stuff.
I made a pretty good haul, an interesting mix of Yamaha XS 650 and pre-unit Triumph parts...spent about $300.00...not bad at all. Next time....a post on the re -commissioning of the Honda SL-100.
and still my favorite bike...the 1908 Zanger....at Casa de Fruta.
