So, finally took the plunge, just purchased this beauty! 2018 bike with just 385 miles on, presumably someone's weekend toy, fine by me, because that's exactly what ill use it for.
The previous owner obviously spent good money to make it look like this and with such low mileage, that's all good for me!

Welcome!

Yes, Superbike factory! Same here, first saw it a few months ago, finally made my mind up and took the plunge.

Good stuff. Is the tank just wrapped, or is it a permanent change?!

That plunge was a good decision. That is a great looking bike. You are now an elite member of the WWFF club. But your bike looks proper with the Wrong Way Front Fender. I wouldn't bother flipping it around. Enjoy the ride and keep posting pictures. :nerd:

SCRBen, proper paint job, although i have seen these tanks in this colour on ebay.
Schu, thankyou, WWFF Club!

Still possibly toying with the idea of creating a copy of the last XT500, gold rims, white tank with black and red decals around the edge, was always my favourite looking bike, in the good old days!

Another XT aficionado? @Schu is going to be thrilled.
XTs are 4-stroke thumpers. (Although very cool)
I'm into the DT, GT, CT, JT 2-strokers. (Ring Dings)

If you haven't heard of him before, look for "Mustie 1" on youtube, his latest project is a ct175.
Mate had a DT175MX back when i was 17ish... with an aftermarket pipe on, think i was the only other person in the village who liked the sound of it!

Okay, but... the XT is like a half-brother to all those others. Same eyes, different nose. Or I'm wayyy off and you and Paul here are going to be at each other's throats. Looking forward to it either way >:)

Thanks for the YouTube tip on the CT project. Since you like the sound of 2-strokes, let me share a link with you. Nothing sounds better than a triple set of expansion chambers on a Kawi H2. Enjoy!

Must be a generational thing - does nothing for me......sounds like my dads old lawnmower, or a hedge trimmer......

Definitely a generational thing because when I was younger my dad's mower sounded nothing like a 2-stroke triple and the hedge trimmer went clip clip clip. :nerd:

mmmm, don't know, but it's certainly one way to go, maybe its because it's in a chopper!!:wink2:
Now, for another great sound from my youth, another friend had an RD400DX, ex-race bike, on the road, still with its competition expansion chambers fitted.
And another friend, yes, they had all the "good bikes", mine were all a bit boring! had a CB750FA, with, I think a lazer(??) pipe on, used to love that sound, shame modern pipes have different sounds.
