Hey guys

New to the forum and to the bike world...just picked up my first project and my first bike. Hoping to get my license this June.

Some pics after I picked it up today:









Already tore the bike down...looking for the problem with the fuel pump not running (probably something to do with some ghetto wiring fixes). Took the carbs off as well, cleaning them up a bit and they're being sent off to be ultrasonically done. Should have them back this week.

Yesterday messed around taking the rear tail off. Going to make up a custom rear panel for the tail light, turn signals, and license plate. Maybe custom side covers as well.

Looking forward to seeing what you do! I think these bikes would make an interesting platform, a lot of power for this era and I haven't seen anyone do anything cool with them yet, mostly just crummy looking bobber builds. I'd like to see what happens when you put a higher tail/subframe on one and a modern front end.

I used to have a V65 Sabre. Man did that thing have some torque! It dyno'd at 125hp & 127 ft.lbs. and this was pretty much a stock bike. I took all the crap off the airbox, so when you wack open the throttle, you really heard the valve overlap. It was almost as loud as the exhaust. Great engine to have some fun with. It will be interesting to see what you do with this.

If that was mine, I would put a wider rear wheel, new USD forks, and a hell of a diet!

Good luck man.
