New bike, sweet deal

So, my dad and I decided to start a bike project, looking for a Yamaha xs650 to turn into a hardtail so we can ride together (He has a bike already). So he put an ad up saying he's looking for this bike, and that he's willing to spend up to 400 and can pick it up.

Some guy emails my dad, and says "I've got a bike, bring my an xl double double, pick it up, and it's yours"

So here is the new bike, not an xs650:







about 2 weeks ago we got the xs650 we were looking for, project time

Should have bought an overpriced lancer with all the money you made from selling stuff on PBN.

Not an xs650.

Looks like an older Virago.

Yeah I was thinking the same. The xs650 was a parallel twin UJM, no a V twin

Lol, what? I haven't sold a thing on here


Yeah it's a virago, apparently they only made this model with the enclosed chain drive for 1 year. As I said in OP, we got an xs650 later on

No, we aren't really focused on doing much to this one, the xs650 is our main project, if we decide screw it we'd part it out, easy profit

Looks like you and your pops have a nice project on your hands. My dad and I picked up a XS650 last summer, it's lowered and stretched 4" with a David Bird hardtail. One thing led to another and unfortunately we haven't completed it yet. Hopefully someday, but in the mean time i'm content riding my Harley.
