So I picked up this cheap bike (XS850)

Wish me luck.

Condition when I picked it up:

Cleaned it as best I could and yanked the engine. Bike has 14K miles and has been down since 1992.

Looks like a bit of work ahead. Just picked one up myself, not nearly as rough though. Only issue I’m having is fitting the tank. Bought 2 tanks and neither fit. Let me know if you run into that trouble and figure out a work around with an original style tank.

Good luck, looks like a fun project.
