Got the carbs back in and tank on, addressed a few QA issues with gas leaking everywhere, freshened the brakes F&R, gave her new coolant, and put her clothes back on!

That same bike was my first. And we all know how it was with your very first.

Nice find! Wish it would have been me...

Thanks! I thought briefly about trying to remove it, but then I figured it gave the bike "a look" that you just can't achieve with Mattel Barbie pink and electric blue alone. That, and it matches the blue anodized aluminum bar ends!

I picked up thos 1968 Harley XLCH for $1400 a few months back. I'm doing a full restoration... so I'll have much more than that in it when its done


Here is the other side (after I took off the tankand fenders for paint):




I bought this 1981 xj550 Seca AND a this 1978 XT500 for $700:




I just cleaned up the Seca and sold it for a profit, so I basically ended up with a free XT500 plus some cash.

That XT500 looks familiar. Did you buy it from an inmate here or at Thumpertalk?

I bought it on ebay [I was drinking] from the guy who traded for it with the guy who bought it at Blue Moon. Blue Moon had done several mods when they had the bike and it is wicked fast. My son lives in the NC mountains and I keep it at his house; that bike was made for curves. On my way back from buying it, I rarely came below 100. It is a real runner.

Nice score glam. Those cx E models are very rare here, As is the TDR, though I have. Ridden one of those off road. I loved it.
