Hey adventurers, I've had this XV for years waiting for some love. Just thought I'd throw up some pictures to show everyone the state of disrepair... I have all the parts in boxes, but have never made the time. Now with two kids, it won't be easy, but who said life was easy? I got this bike from a friend for free about 10 years ago. At the time it had been sitting outside with a tarp over it for about 7 years. I briefly got it to run, it smoked badly from one cylinder, then the carbs caught fire (not bad). :huh I took it apart and cleaned it up some, but it sat inside...now for years. Starter is toast. No spark last time I tried. I believe it is the #12 bike off the line. Time to do something with this thing. Just to ride it as a rat bike, it needs: Front brakes redone (they are stuck). Starter. Battery. Carb rebuild. Possibly new rings. Tires. New ignition (no sparky)? A seat of some sort. Anyway, I'd get rid of this thing but those bikes by Sepp Koch are just too sweet. Words of wisdom appreciated.
