I bought this 74 TX650 a few years ago as a long term project, just something to keep me occupied and keep me moving. I have chronic, untreatable RA so my body hasn't fared too well so far: fused fingers, toe joint replacement surgery, hip replacement surgery, ulna nerve transposition and so on, so everything takes a long time to do. The bike was a wreck when I bought it badly oxidised, pitted and rusted, missing parts, crankcase wrecked by an errant chain, no compression to speak of. Coming to the end now. All handbuilt in my workshop, fabrication, welding, painting, machining, electrical, metal polishing, anodising, spanner work, spoking and so on: PMA conversion, carb conversion, single points conversion, manifolds, exhaust, tail light, headlight brackets, risers, side panels, battery carrier, seat pan, and lots more. It came with a few spare parts carbs, spoked wheels, indicators and so on. Here's where I'm up to.
