New Guy from Pensacola

Post by Guest on Tue Sep 28, 2010 12:20 pm

Hello all! I stumbled across this site while I was visiting the Mobile Craigslist site. Im originally from Detroit, but moved to Pensacola about 4 years ago. I look forward to talking with everyone here and helping where I can.

Here is my 1974 Yamaha TX650A. I've modded it quite a bit including a forged 750cc kit/Mikuni Roundslides/Electronic Ignition and a bunch more. Hope you all like it!

Nice ride, I love the XS650 and plan doing one up as a bobber myself! I am not far from P'cola. What part do you live in?

Will do, I am near southeast, so we are not really too close! Also after looking over your bike some more, I see your rear signals are mounted in the old passenger peg mounts....clever!

Clever except that I now have a axle mount plate bracket and it blocks the left signal. Also, both lense covers busted off and I can't seem to find replacements. I'm working on purchasing some new signals and trying to find a new place to mount them. Good eye though!

No actually its the dinky stock 34mm forks. Im thinking of maybe upgrading to the later 35mm forks or running a 2 under DNA springer with a 21" Harley wheel.


Once again thanks for the compliments everyone!
