I brought this bike for $600 with plans to build it into a bobber. I am big on making everything possible instead of buying parts and that’s what I’m attempting to do. I am pulled the engine apart to find a loverly rust ring imprinted on the bore with a score mark down the side. Also in that cylinder was a nice peice if weld splatter from the custom mana fold that had punched holes in the top of the piston and head. So I’m currently stuck in that department as genuine pistons are not available and custom pistons are a heart stopping price. Just for reference this bike is a 1984 xv1000, not an 86 as it says in the specs (84 wasn’t an option).
I have started building the custom tank. Using a steel wire frame approach as a template. It’s all coming along slowly but it’s happening.
Parts Worked On:
- Chassis, Engine, Fuel System
