A full restoration on anything always looks much easier when it’s all in one piece. Restoring vehicles has brought me a different mental strength because it is at this moment where the thought of quitting and also the imaginative seed of fear can set in. Parts literally everywhere, wires everywhere, and you left the carbs for last because they’re the easiest. Maybe you broke a bolt or there is one you can’t remove. I love this moment of a restoration, making sure I stay mentally strong and also making sure I don’t work too quickly because the finish line is near. If this motor wasn’t seized when I got the bike—I’d be racing it already. These builds are done piece by piece. My normal work is measured in square footage. This work is inch by inch for me. Couple pictures of what I’ve been doing before and after hours. Very blessed in many ways, God is good. Can’t wait to be lock to lock on this bike!!!! #blessed#flattrack#xs400#taziolibuilt
Throwback to this birthday boy on the XS400 I built awhile back.
Keep chasing(no pun intended) your dreams homie. I know you’ll slay this year and seek those experiences you’ve been longing for. Love you duder.
#TBT - the road to nowhere. Sticky summer days, sketchy builds at wide open throttle on fresh unopened highways. Illegal and worth it. ☠️ my old @classifiedmoto inspired #XS400 - traded a worn out and rusted 175 two stroke enduro for this thing out of Gary Indiana. When the seller showed up he informed me there was no title. I figured this thing was stolen. Came back clean and I rode it for a summer... the last time I saw it, some fella rode the train out from Chicago and took off toward home with it. 🐎
