Winter is tough in the midwest for those of us who ride motorcycles. All we
can do come winter (when it's cold outside); is wait for a day above
35-degrees, when the snow and the ice have melted. That's when we stretch
our legs and warm up our bikes. Ok we warm them up regardless; even if it's
5-degrees out, when all we can do is aim the exaust out the garage door:)
Bobber Build 79 Yamaha XS750
A friend gave me a bike, so I built a bobber. I've got about one month into
it so far. Test drive went well, handles great and its very comfortable.
I'll post more after its painted and polished. I'm up for paint idea's...?
