The next adventure

Friends are great. What would we do with out them? I love coming up with shit on my own and doing things on my own, sure, but isn't it great when a friend comes along and lights a fire under your ass and gets you on board with one of life's excellent adventures. Co-built Geoff told me he was picking up some old british twin in L.A. so he figured he mind as well ride the L.A-Barstow to Vegas on it and the fire was lit. I figured why do the ride with him on my trusty XR650 when my neighbor just gave me an xs650 with a shot big end bearing that didnt know what to do with.... except chop off everything he had done to it.And do something with the swing arm. Hmmm, enter a 1994 YZ125 chassis that another neighbor donated. I may be a bit over the top but where there is a will, there is a way. Flame wrench + buzz box = mono shock swing arm... hopefully.
With all the XS bones I have around I have the engine sorted. I grinded, shimmed, hammered, and sexed a xr500 front end on and of course it all started with the correct fuel tank.
