I got a hold of a perfectly good Yamaha XS750 and tore it up. I mean the thing had survived since 1976 in nearly factory stock condition until it fell into my greasy,angle grinder wielding hands. Oh did that little bitch squeal as the sparks flew!

Anyway, after the metal chips and sparks and paint fog settled, this is what was left. A couple things left to do, but I had to drag her out for photos...

That triple has a mean wail...

I love taking apart a dirty, greasy motorcycle, cleaning and painting, and then assembling said parts in the living room. Nothing like a carpeted workspace.

That's great!
Bike looks pretty good, I'd give the seat another go as it doesn't look up to the same level as the rest of it. Maybe smaller signals but over all nice work.
