I know I've still got way to much to do on Ginny before I get her back on the road, but I couldn't pass on this 1977 XLH. The previous owner parted with her at a very favorable price so into the truck she went.
My initial intent was to swap the better parts over to Ginny and then sell the rest. It's got quite a few parts I needed and had already planned to buy in the near future:
- New bearings in the neck and wheels.
- Wire wheels to replace my current mags.
- Blacked out fork sliders.
- And a newly rebuilt engine to use while I rebuild Ginny's properly.
Though, the more I look at it, the parts on the '77 are pretty nice. I might go the other direction and use parts from Ginny to rebuild her. No, no... I'm sorry dear, I didn't mean it!! You're still my favorite!
I still need to go through it a bit better to see exactly what I got but I'm pleased with what I've seen so far. I think it was a really good purchase and, as you know, I can't pass up a nicely painted oil tank.
