I have this frame I bought cheap & am trying to find out what direction to go with it. I know I can't afford to go restored or original. I'm wanting to rat it, but would like to see what some of you guys have done with an X-53. I only have $20 in this one so far. The forks on it were just scrounged up from my parts pile. I love this frame style! A tank would be nice, but expensive, so may go without one. Here is the starting point.
