I'm with Renegade on this. Powdercoated or not. Those drag bars looked WAY better, and were way more functional, too.

I rode the Marauder. Tried to tag it but decided a 3 hour wait at the dmv sounded about as good as an asshole full of rust.

Pic of you on it so we can see arm position and such. It might look better than we think.

I'm 6'2 the bars are still under my shoulders and it feels so much better on my body.

Kitchen strainer baffles on the Marauder. Vance and Hines Cruisers are a bit loud for my taste.

Added two front teeth to both bikes. The VZ800 is a much happier highway bike and the GS got about 1200rpms knocked off of it at 70mph.

The title for my xs650 is finally coming in the mail, so I started getting down and dirty on it. The goal is to overhaul the motor, and to hard tail the frame. I needed something to keep me busy this winter. Here's the carnage from stripping the frame

That looks well organized and coordinated.

If you hard tail it with solid links to the original shock locations, i will burn you.

Pulled quite a few stickers off last night or tonight from PO lol. Took me a while with a blow dryer and some goof off but I think it looks way better.

Before


After, pulled the "Suzuki" by the headlight off after this pic as well
