I don't have pics, but I've built a couple of small bikes for several hundred dollars with parts off Ebay. Frame and all. Have a sweet XL185S now.
I've got several near new clutch plates so that part is "free."

At least on the K1100s it's usually just the clutch nut O-ring that dries out and I do plan to replace that while I have things apart. The rear main seal fails much less frequently and even when it does it won't foul the clutch plate like a bad O-ring eventually will.

You do raise a valid point here.

It just so happens that I brought them home with me on my 94 RS that I took down there. As you can see they actually look pretty decent and whoever did it did a pretty good job. (They'll look better after I've Armor-All'd the dust off of them.)

Now I have to give it a clutch plate/O-ring/spline lube! UGH.

PO had some of the wiring mixed up. Got that straightened out. Cleaned out the gas tank. New fuel filter. Fresh gas. New battery. Vroom, vroom....

I have to work outside in the sun. My garage isn't that big and it's got my hasn't been driven in five years RX-7 convertible and a couple of K bikes filling it up already. I do work in there in the winter but it's kind of cramped between the wall and the car.

If it comes back to you, it's, well, broken.

What's that from again?

No way. It's a great car. I bought it new in 1990. Just needs a radiator and a new vert top (I have the top already but spend all of my time wrenching on bikes.)

My poor car. It used to get all of my attention before I got into wrenching on bikes.

I've posted this elsewhere but, I got this for free from a co-worker of a friend.

I spent about $550 in parts and paint supplies to turn this...


Into this...


Now, I need a new project to start on.

Beautiful conversion, nice color scheme and work. Damn if you were closer you could do my XS650. The paint is done, just needs someone to play with the clutch and fine tune it. We rebuilt the carbs and put new gaskets on most of the engine. You actually turned a Nighthawk into a badass looking streetfighter!

Never took any pics but a few years ago my brother's friend's wife wanted room in the garage so he had to get rid of an 87 Honda Elite 80cc scoot. He gave it to me for free.

Hadn't run in quite a few years. I couldn't get the carbs working properly so I bought some used ones for $25 from a crashed scoot on Fleabay.

I rode it a bit but at 35mph it scared the hell out of me given the crappy brakes and tiny wheels.

Sold it for $700.

Thanks, Rasthomas.

If you were closer, I'd work on your XS. The winter will be here soon and having bikes to work on in the garage keeps me sane when I have nothing else to do.

I'm currently working on picking up a 1981 Suzuki GS that a friend of mine has had in his garage for the last 20 years. He's not going to do anything with it but, he's a pack rat that won't get rid of anything without a fight. He said if he decides to get rid of it, he will give it to me for free so, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
