    As you are all experiencing, the cold is a serious dampener on motivation if your work space isn't heated. But yesterday got my long johns and heavy socks on and got out to the garage to clean up the carb set and rear wheel.:grin5: Also a pic of an xs650 built on the same stance of frame I have.

    I've always thought that the XS650 engine was a thing of beauty. Maybe the Triumph's were as good looking. But only maybe; they definitely were not better looking.

    I had two friends who had 650 Specials. I had an 850 Special and my brother had an 1100 Special. They were all fine, fine machines. The whole XS line was great. I miss them.
