Hi everyone! This is my first time posting anything about my bike on this forum and first time documenting build progress , so take it easy on me. I been wanting to build an older bike for 10+ years, however time and finances just weren't there. On November 12th 2018 I came across my 83 XJ750 Maxim for $175! Needless to say at that price point bike didn't start, but as the saying goes baggers can't be choosers so i ended up picking it up. After tinkering in the garage with it for 30 minutes, I started the bike and took it for a ride.Everything worked as it should and I was extremely happy with my purchase. Initial plan was to make slight modifications to the bike and keep the budget low. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that i won't be ok with corner cutting and settling for less than what i really wanted. This led me to be looking for a modern sport bike front end and putting ideas in my head as to what i want it to look at the end. I found 2006 R1 with blown engine and decided that it would be a perfect donor bike for my project. At this point My XJ has R1 front end, rear monoshock conversion, 82 XJ550RJ tank. I still have a long ways to go but considering the time frame I am working with so far I couldn't be any happier than i currently am with the progress that was made so far. Ill attach few pictures (and try to keep them in order) for you to view.
