I have it on good authority that the gosh-awful faring is really comfortable to ride behind.
That drives me nut. The old "I completely have it taken apart, no idea if all the parts are there and I still want my money I paid for it when I first picked it up." VENTING...just drive me nuts when sellers do that.
but it has very low hours and in excellent condition
bikes like that should be free to good home
Probably so, but still............it's bigger than the bike itself!
I’ll call on the quad cities one in the morning. Man. That other one tho is the same ad I called about last year. Seems like word for word. Idk. Anything is possible. Could’ve broke his leg twice now. Jk
Well. I emailed the guy about the black maxim parts bike. We will see what he says and there may be more parts available then for you all
I thought you might like the one that is closer to you, even though it is really in ruff shape.
Yeah. I grew up in the same area. I’ll probably have another parts bike later today for everyone as it’s not titled and hasn’t ran he said in 15 years or even moved
It’s at my place now if anyone needs parts
Awww... Look guys, he mentioned us... I think.
Unless there's another great(er) XJ forum out there... doubt it!
WOW that was a read...I know you don't really want to call anyone as a Pathological something...but come on! I always rebuild a newly rebuild engine just because I like to do it...all the time in the world...sure....
This bike also has a great forum I think he means form
I was obsessed with maintaining it. Weekly oil changes, constantly tuning, etc... because he never got the carbs right
Of course, this is an as is bike and take all this info as you would any info you read from a stranger on craigslist.
= every thing I said was misinformation
I was afraid to poke fun... for fear it was one of us here!
Not sure I'd attempt to cross the country on that thing (as he was planning)... at least in its current state.
we can all take a little poke or 2. cross country one gas station at a time and of course stopping to change the oil frequently and retuning.
Sounds like a..... I built this outta junk laying around and it never really worked right and i give up! Lol!
And ya, changing the oil frequently n retuning cause the needle n seats are leaking... Crankcase fire anyone?
for those of you looking for a X here you go.
If I had more time and money I'd be on it. Wouldn't look forward to the valve clearance but do it right once and it should be good for a long time. Maybe you should pick it up and flip it @Timbox you have some X-perience
Well. It does run. He sent me the video. Just a quick 3-4 seconds and it dies but. It runs. Someone needs to go get this.
Ya I know I should, need to make some room. I think my BMW will be up for sale and make some room. I like to work on the X but sitting in it just feels different for me. But for that price...maybe talk them down a little. Paper work is $100 to around $180 for new title and running around in WI. I hope someone picks it up before I sell the BMW.
This is cute.....
Bike runs like a champ and no keys and no headlight and on and on and on
They price will have to fall a little for anyone to bike on it....does look nice though...tank and seat...
