I've become accustomed to my Norton drawing a crowd of onlookers virtually everywhere I stop; I wasn't quite prepared for it to start happening with my XJs, especially my daily rider. I pulled into a party store on Friday to grab a refreshing beverage and check my cell for messages, and a guy coming out of the store absolutely FREAKED OUT over my '81. He took pictures with his phone, called his dad, and was totally enamored with it. Apparently he'd never seen one before. Ten minutes later, I'm getting saddled up to leave, and ANOTHER guy comes along with his kid and also has to take pictures, as his first street bike was an '81 Seca 550. I was expecting my restified '83 project bike to draw a few comments, but I didn't expect it with my "daily rider." I've given so much attention to the project, I've overlooked my "workhorse." So I decided maybe I sould share a few pictures of that one, too: De-fairinged; Hella H4, simple drop-in conversion (from chacal) and Dunlop D404's. Progressive Suspension 12-series shocks; Sargent Cycle Products redid my seat; And I installed Euro bend handlebars with Gran Tourismo-style grips; other than that it's pretty much stock.
