Alright guys I figured I better do something with the parts bike I have. As you might have read on my other project I bought this 97' for $50 and I want to turn it into a cafe style bike.

Ok so I haven't done much but strip the bike down...

So the previous owner had this bike sitting outside and the spark plugs were out of it... rain most likely got down into the motor I'm thinking I need to tear it down but the question is how far :ponder: do I need to tear the top end and bottom end down and completely re-build it?? I need to dump the oil and see if there is any metal..

This is going to be a long fun journey but luckily I have you guys to help out!

Sweet man, can't wait to see it and watch the build. I loved my cafe racer XS400; so much fun. Im sure you'll have even more fun since you're going from the ground up
