    Was this on craigslist? I think I saw it posted long ago, don't think the seat was diamond plate then though. My balls hurt just looking at it.

    I'm getting the itch for another bike, but it's gonna be awhile. Got things that are more important right now. I am thinking maybe a cafe though, I love crotch rockets, but not that they feel comfy at illegal speeds.
    yup, found it on craigslist, I buy most, if not all, my bikes off craigslist, great resource if you can sift through peoples bull shit and scammers

      I picked up a 1980 Yamaha XS400 last week. It's going to be my first street bike. I rode dirt bikes like ten years ago, but my mountain bike has been my only 2 wheeled vehicle since.


      Here's a couple pics:





      Plans are to tear it down this winter and do a frame off restoration... The engine is strong with only 6,000 on it... But I want to refinish the frame and build a cafe style seat. I'd also like to do a fork swap with something more modern if I can find something that matches up close.

      Here's some inspiration:

        third picture would be dope as shit, albeit very uncomfortable to ride

        first/second picture reminds me of the old rebel i got when i turned 18. oh the memories... nothing says "motorcycle" like losing drag races with stock civics... when the other person doesn't even know they're racing you

          Yeah it's a small bike, but I'm not looking for speed. Not looking to kill myself lol... I might even turn it into a scrambler... but I do love the cafe look.

            I thought so, I think it was built by a little shop or a few guys trying to make a cafe bizz out of their garage. They had a few bikes cleaned up and looking not too shabby, might have been over a year ago though. I assume it was more for fun as profits probably weren't really there.

            For more inspiration.

              don't worry, it's got more than double the power of a rebel, there's more enough speed to get you killed/in trouble ;)

                              You totally have a problem, but that's ok. There are worse vices.
