I'll add pics soon, but I wanted to address that this is an election year and things have been very busy for me. I did get a new battery for the XJ700 today, installed, and it fired right up! I just have to finish fitting the air box on the carbs, add the trim parts back on, chase down exhaust leak (by chase down I mean I just bought all new gaskets to replace them all.), and sync the carbs. Things are slowing down on the campaign trail, which is typical for mid summer. This should free up some time for me to get in the garage again until fall sweeps hit.
More updates to come.

Proposed route to teabag Lake Superior

Should be a blast in October. September would be better if only so I don't miss Barber Vintage weekend.

Just saying...

Otto instead

Not enough contrast with the other image projected, so my Otto stencil will do. I do have Bruce Lee and Mr. T stencils...

He is complete

Waiting on parts and a kid

Going to put this up on the back wall after I patch it and paint it.

Waiting on the last bits of the xs before sending it to the welder.

Waiting on the parts for Francis's goldwing.

Waiting on a 2 year old to get back from grandmas to help me tear down the xl motor.

I gotta pee.
