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.

Both bikes are very cool! Wish I had the original springer for mine. It will have to at least have truss rods of some sort.

Mitch: Looking forward to seeing the stretch version! :roll:

be original man! do your thing so we can steal ideas from you :mrgreen:
I just kind of steal the idea & then bend the concept to fit my needs, so that makes it original right? :?: :mrgreen:

It's getting harder & harder to figure out something that hasn't been done on this site!

This was just a parts holder frame that might have had potential but I didn't have the tools or motivation to continue.......

Due to this piece of ingenius engineering from years gone by.....so it has been passed along.
