My '72 XLCH progress

Well, she's coming along. New brakes, pipes, handlebars,HB clamp, seat, Dunlop K70, fork gaiters, headlight/housing, chainguard, oil tank, battery tray, New Bendix carb,etc, etc, etc. Still got a ways to go...Took her out for a short run and she handles pretty badly, I suspect the swingarm bearings. It also takes about 30 kicks to get her started so Im buying a Mikuni to see how that works out. Why am I doing this, again?

Speedbuggy Motorcycles

These guys do cool stuff...I really dig the Japanese aesthetic applied to American motorcycles. Less showy and more purposeful looking builds in my opinion.

That Long Lonesome Highway...

I found this at Goodwill for a $1.49. I was stoked! My old man used to watch this show. It's one of my faves also...
