Ben's 1976 XS750
First attempt at fibreglass seat; based off the MEEN STREAK XS750.
I didn’t get enough layers, and it has a few air bubbles so I’m going to have another go.
Looking good. The tail came out great and it’s always a great feeling when you do the work yourself. Keep it up.
So now I finally found pics of those bullet signals - they look very nice - I think I will get those for my bike!
Yeah, the indicators look great
Running!, but only just.
Requires full choke and no throttle.
Rearsets, the brake side hits on the kick starter so I’ll have to sort something out.
And the brake master cylinder is only temporary.
looks awesome! I like the single gauge setup, kind of wish I went that route, I did the dual small gauges and they work good, but I don’t think they look as nice.

Yeah, I think it looks tidier but I’ll be wishing for a tacho at some point.
What front master cylinder do you have and how are they working for you? I’ve just ordered some that look very similar.
The bad idle was caused by wrong pilot jets and bad ignition timing, it’s running heaps better now!
First ride, just in the yard as the front brakes are missing.
