I've seen this done on other forums and thought it might be fun here. As often as all of us are buying and trading, upgrading, fixing, rebuilding, and otherwise trolling Ebay for sweet deals, we get a lot of packages that we spend days anticipating and get giddy when we finally see them delivered. This thread will be to share the excitement of the new part or sweet pair of gloves or whatever just showed up on your doorstep.

The thread rules are simple:
Post a picture of your package. Cover up names and addresses.
Open it.
Post a picture of what's inside.
Talk about it, but please try to keep too much unrelated chat to a minimum.

I'll start.

I left work early yesterday because it was raining and I'd been following this on FedEx for a couple days.

This is a familiar shape...

It's a Corbin seat from red450! That's a hell of a packing job. He even used super nice $8/roll Frog Tape!
Image

Hit the piping with a magic eraser and treated the leather and it's ready to ride!

Thanks to red450 for a great deal. First time I've ever heard of anyone wanting to trade their super nice Corbin for a stock seat, but who am I to argue.

Great idea for a thread Ed. I'll surely play along once a few more boxes arrive.

This one was in the mailbox when I came home today. I wonder what's inside?

Oh, that's right. A fuel tank rubber mount for PBT. I was missing this when I bought the bike. I'm sure the previous owner cut it up with his grinder :thumbdown:

This came, too, though it's not really for the XJ. Sweet couple bags of bolts, though. M6 and M8 flange-head with a nice OE looking plating. These will be used on the Honda, the Isuzu, and wherever else I need an M6 or M8 flanged bolt. Best part is - $12 for both bags. Seriously, here, I'm excited about these!

Yes sir, they are the longer levers. About the same length as stock. They will be used on the Scrambler.

Today I got a box, or parcel, rather. It's from XJ4Ever.
Image

The package smells suspiciously of Hoppe's #9 for some reason.
First out of the parcel, a new stainless steel rear brake line, a set of copper crush washers, and a sticker!
Image

Next up, a front brake line and some information about replacing lines.
Image

Hmm, this seems thorough.
Image

Color pictures, even.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Geez this is really extensive.
Image
Image

That's a pretty good package. I haven't pulled the lines out of the bags yet, but they line up fine on the bike. There's disclaimers all over the place on the XJ4Ever website about these being built off the stock bike with stock bars, suspension, etc. I traded some emails with Len, the owner (User Chacal on xjbikes.com), and we figured they'd probably work on my bike with Euro bars, since the stock lines went on just fine.

I'll post up a report when I get the lines run, maybe this weekend. For now, though, the process has been great. I got excellent communication from the seller, and the construction looks top notch on these things. Check out XJ4Ever.com.
