My plan is to strip it down to the frame and build an entirely new bike in its place. I think the XS750 is rad, but I may not keep it. From this bike I might only use the frame, but we shall see.
As of October 4, 2016, I’ve separated the frame and the engine. I have the engine sitting on an engine stand waiting for me to clean up, check compression and make it look pretty. I’m about half way through detabbing the frame. I found a place nearby that does powder coating. I’m going to have the frame and wheels powder coated black for about $300 ($200 for the frame and $100 for the wheels). That includes prepping the frame and wheels to be coated – sandblasting or whatever.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to use the stock fork, so I need to dig up some brake calipers, pads, new tubes and a fresh set of gaskets for it.
The serial number on this bike is IJ7-104036. The model is an XS7502D.
