Beautifull bike. I like this kind of seats, very flat.
Where did you get it? I never see such seats to sell, except with the mark (kawa, honda...) on them...

Thank you all for the compliments.
Yes sold all XZ550's
For you out there: it's still one of the finest engines for a caferacer...TRY IT
Yep couldn't make it yesterday, because I wanted to come with the Royal Enfield, but I sold her too...................
and I don't drive a bike that they pick up this week.
Didn't want to come on the BSA
I'm gonna sell her too.
(only if the price is right)

And this XS...Yeah I think it looks very British to me, isn't it?

Well I'm gonna tell you something
Today I had several phone calls, and tomorrow one guy is coming to look at the BSA.
If he don't want it, I can phone another one and another one......
So I don't worry I don't sell it
And to be honest: If they don't buy I don't care.........
Here a picture of the BSA and the XS front side

I would keep her in chrome, if I were you.
She's really beautifull the way she is now, absolutely.

And I really like this seat, woaaa... Can you tell us where / by whom you had it done?

Hey Z
Everybody likes this seat, even a famous Yamaha XS 650 shopowner.
He asked me especially about the buddy seat and gived me a compliment
Somebody I knew very well made it from aluminium by hand, and than somebody else did the finishing touch with skai leather.
Beautiful indeed and that's one of the reasons I keep "upgrade" her everytime and did send a picture for the contest.
