That is really nice bike. I rattle canned my xs750 and it came out pretty nice too. I would love to find another standard to café.

Hi jjz28,
how hard are you looking? If you connect with list member elgranchefe he's recently posted about a '79 Standard and a '79 Special he needs to fix up for sale.

Hi! Really like your colors and design on the bike. Personally I think it will benefit from an extra silver or red pinstripe along the separation of the two colours ...

We'll know soon enough, had a low speed accident with it and managed to put a fist sized dent in tank. Thinking now is a good time for a color change since its already in primer again. I like the style with the chrome, but the maroon was pretty thin, and scratched easily. Thinking green and silver, or green with cream/white. Input would be appreciated.

IMHO, the present color scheme is excellent. It's classy, showy, and unique.
