Well I have finally joined the ranks of bike owners. I have long like bikes, especially custom choppers. My true love was for the old bobber style of bikes. i really loved their simplicity. Well recentlyI have been reading the motorcycle thread, and my GF has been talking about getting either a Sportster 883 or maybe even a V-Star to drive to work to help save on gas. Well since I have had several friend that have had bikes for years and go on rides together. I thought I wouold finally get one and me and my GF could ride together and also with our friends.

Plus now the Tim has a bike and John will get one soon. we can start our own gang. :lol: :lol: :lol:



Well anyway here we go. I started looking on craigslist, after a decent search that included many cities I decided to check this one out since the price was good and it wasn't too far from my house. Well it turned out to be decent and fixable and was already started being a bobber which is what I wanted.

I will post more pics as I fix it and whip it into shape. I am thinking maybe black with red wire wheels eventually.

Next stop, Strokers in Dallas.... LOL. :D :D :D

Well I am not completely sure what I want to do. Either shorter or longer.

I think the bars on your bike would look great on mine. :D

FWIW, you can get them off ebay for about $25?

But I don't think yours are really that much different than mine...

Well as of right now I have yet to get the bike to start. It will crank and crank and crank but won'r fire. We have check all the basics and still don't know whats up. The wiring is so messed up on it I am not sure if I should keep it or just sell it and get another bike.

There is another bike that is all original, and has a bigger motor. I am just not sure I want bail on this and start over.

so what going to happen to the gsx 400 then? are you going to keep her as spares or the gf going to be getting it? :lol:
i have a gsx 400 race bike and all i did for more speed is porting and jetted her. my race mate has a gs 450 thats been bored out to over 500cc, and my 400 still overtakes him. the gsx has really small exhaust ports. and they crack the sparkplug holes. gs has no probs but not as fast. oh and just incase you dont know gsx has square rocker covers, and gs ones are round.i see someone has placed a gsx into your bike.hope this helps you.
all the best man..... :lol:

Well here in the US this bike is a GS300L, not a GSX. As for what is going to happen to it I put it up for sale and should be going bye bye very soon.

Yes, it is still for sale. It pretty much needs most of the wiring redone or put back together.
