    Hi I am undergoing a build on my 82 Xj650 and I wanted to know how you mounted the seat and the rear fender. I plan I using a stock seat and a very bobbed rear fender.

    I love the work you did on the instrument cluster. Looks simple and sleek. Do you know where I can find information on doing something similiar?

    I like your tank paint job, looks pretty neat. I've got the stock 650LH and for now it will stay that way, if I decide to change it up, your bike is a great example.

    This picture is the best I've seen it. I wish I had the money to replace the exhaust right now but that's going to have to be the next thing. Funny how making something look good highlights the bad.
