  5/24/2011: found a project bike! after looking around a bit and getting tired of searching each craigslist site individually i found magically a 1978 xs750se showed up in madras! a good price and many, many extra parts. it comes with a 850 engine installed, there is an 850 parts bike, a 750 standard engine and the original engine, plus the extra parts and a collection of exhaust pipes. let the project begin!

        and the first group of shots...
        the carburetors
