stopped over in st. clair shores and helped a buddy get back on track with his build.
6" stretch in down tubes, 8" stretch in top tube, dropped seat 4", raked to 38 degree's, not finished but it's a start. oh and it's a 74 sohc cb750. bike was in a accidant before he got it, not bad but once you cut it apart and started fitting it back together.... it was interesting for sure. had to stare at it alot to figure it out. and the neck was twisted but when we raked it, we fixed that little issue.

me getting an idea of seat tubes



home boy mike tacking it together


not finished but it's a start

Looks good.

Why not drop the seat pan in the front as well?

Good lines. You work without a jig? I'd love to do something like that with my bike, but the xs11 frame has that double backbone, and I have no welder or skill. :)

gas man, thats what he want's and it's in his head, gotta follow his vision!!!

Fix, yup, no jig at his house, which ain't really a problem. i have a jig at home but on something like that, i never use it. a jig is like a second set of hands. just cause it built on a jig don't mean it'll be straight. string line, levels and a set of good eyes is all thats needed LOL. if your interested in cutting up the xs1100, drop me a line. it's really no different.
