    Hello all,

    I've just come from my first bike; an '84 Kawasaki KZ550, which I mildly cafe'd. Now thanks to some hunting and good fortune I have two XJ750 X bikes, both '85.

    The red one has 32xxx kms and I want to leave it bone stock since it's in such good shape.

    The black one has 62xxx kms and I got it for cheap knowing it needed love. I did a shim replacement (17 of 20 were changed $$$), XS750 gravity fed petcock, a set of bars, custom clutch cable mount, and some K&N filters.

    I'm not done tinkering with this guy yet and I want some inspiration! I've seen a bunch of air cooled XJ builds, but are there any mild to wild X builds out there?

    I'm not sure an X would look as good that way. Maybe.
    I guess it would depend on how one deals with the radiator. Hide it, or make it pop?
