It's always great to read someone post something like this.
Thanks for resuscitating that triple, a worthy bike for such extreme efforts!
Very well done!

Well Hell,as long as were admitting to being human here,I recently bought a 74 XS650 in dirty shape for 100.00,washed it and sold it for 1200.00 in a week.
The guy who drove 4 hours to get it was thrilled,I knew I wasnt going to spend the time/money to bring it back again.

Rick, you've done it again, another beautiful bike. I've been working on my Stinger for many months and I'm pretty sick of cleaning, scrubbing and painting parts that don't look nearly nice enough to be a 50ft. show bike. I anyone that has the talent and patience to do any type of restoration.
