I picked up this "new to me" 1982 xj750 off marketplace the other day, no battery, no starter and 60k km, but i bump started it in the driveway and it ran fine, and idle well also. Put it in the truck and brought it home. Besides it needing a battery and a starter.. it also didn't have the gauge cluster hooked up, rpm needle was broke, turn signals were taped on the front fork, the rear turn signals were falling off.. you know all the typical things.. seat was just sitting there... The previous owner before me had installed the stock bars but upside down.. making the turning radius of this bike tripple id bet... For now ive stripped the old bars, risers, ect.. off the tripple tree and thanks to a thread on here i ordered up some 1981 virago risers and ill use those for a full bar. Tanks off to get some work done to it, had a few bad dents, also took the batt box fairings off too. Did an oil change, filter change, going to go through the wiring and fix some unnecessary crimped connections, that seem to be everywhere... Had some tail end turn signals dropped off so ive got those mocked for now. Thinking about how to close up these holes on the fender, if its worth tacking some steel in the holes or just getting a different rear fender. The risers are in the mail, bars are in the mail ect... This is my first xj750 and my first project bike. My other build (4x4) is at a halt due to not having a garage , but the bike fits fine in my basement so thats a win! Im also very happy this forum uses the same format as my other project forum, and the how to video section is an awesome addition! This is how i picked it up the other day, also the advertised photo.
