I've been to yamaha-triples.org, but I can't find your bike. What's your name there?

That's the best xs750 I've seen yet. I have a 78 Special and yours has the kind of look I'm trying to get. How did you lower the seat and what size shocks are those?

this bike was rescued from years of snow and rain. my good friend neil gave it to me on one condition...that i make something cool out of it. it started life as a 1979 xs750 standard.i scooped 4.5 in. out of the back of the frame to give it a better ride height and stance,short hd sporty shocks,corbin seat,xs850 special tank,nsu fenders,bars and turnsignals,triumph bonneville headlight,chrome brackets,31 ford taillight,3-1 stainless headerpipe, and a doner moter off of an 81 xs850.more to come is the front fender,chrome guages,flush indicator lights in the triumph bucket, and some dyna coils. i'm sure i wont give up then,but i'll keep everyone up with the progress. thanks again to neil, tony,and mike for making her possible and thanks to patrick for having this awesome site...GO JAPANESE CHOPPERS GO!!

Thanks man! Always appreciate the kind words. It's summer and I've not been adding to the site as much as I want but I'm busy riding and having fun!
