In any case, fuck him with a hot poker stick. What an asshole

Hey guys, here is my custom 1981 Yamaha XS650. Went through everything, including re-phasing the motor to a 277 phase configuration. All work done by me, including the 2-1 exhaust which was welded with an oxyacetylene welder, hehe.

Still have some plans like re-do wiring, re-do seat cowl, paint, and some other bits.

Next project is a 1982 GS750, buy some gloves to help fund the project!

BUY GLOVES HERE

I also sell a slick armored version, hit me up!

What do the armored cafe gloves look like?
post #4071 of 4531
Mark, thanks for asking. They don't have the same ribbing as the cafe glove.

Overall, the glove is constructed very well but is austere in it's styling. The armor is hidden. These go for $60 shipped to your door.

This is my personal pair after a year of road use, still going strong.

BTW, here are a few pictures of the GS750 project. Going to do a streetfigther/cafe on this one.

How is the finger length on those? My normal issue with gloves is that they fit in width but not in length.

For day-to-day wear, this isn't a problem, but on a bike or a motorcycle where you are putting weight on the joint between thumb and forefinger, it gets uncomfortable if the glove is too short.

Ah, unfortunate that the armored is not ribbed, really liked the look... definitely will keep them in mind when my bike gets delivered though.

In case anyone is interested, there is still an time to sign up for the Skully beta. They'll start picking people in February. http://t.co/w0CftxXtnQ

Yeah, I got an email recently letting me know they'd received my application.

My sense is that betas will end up with riders who have a strong presence in social media and the 'net.

Do you think posting in the "Would You Hit It?" thread counts?

Down to two bikes now - sold the CBR600RR on Friday. Now the tough part - finding a nice, stock late 70s CB550.
