Goosenecked XS

Bought  this as a complete bike about 2 years ago,but was a total shed. Engine had been run with no oil, anything that could leak did leak and everything was painted black. It also had scars from an excursion off its wheels. So two years later, a 750 big bore, 4 inch over forks, alot of polishing and chrome things started to come together.

The tank came from an autojumble and was painted along with the rear mudguard. Thought it was finished last april so rode it through the summer but had loads of problems with the carbs, still not running right so am in the process of making a 2 into 1 inlet manifold to take a vm36.

Also just built a spoked front wheel and want to fit a hydraulic clutch and permanent magnet altenator.

    at first glance i wasnt sure i would like this bike, but the more i looked at it the more i liked it and saw the sense of it. very custom, yet looks like its probably as comfy or more so than stock to me.

    yellowing in those pipes looks like you need to check your mixture out.. nice bike really like how you revived an old abused engine and gave her life again..

    Class job on the rear fender struts, I’m a fan of flat bar steel. Rear disc sweet too. I can see you like to cruise the ladies by the way its all set up.
