    That's an impressive stable of machines, not to mention a beautiful home and neighborhood. You have every right to be proud.

      I'm proud that I have less in 3 Yamahas and a sidecar than the price of one used HD and that I did all the work on them which is enjoyable as riding for me. The newest Purple one performed flawlessly today riding to Celina and back...MUCH more comfortable than the white bike (ED rider seat, backrest, windshield, bags VS dragger seat and nothing else!)

        Very nice collection. That white one still makes me just stare. So clean and simple. Beautiful machine.

            Well there's nothing on it that would make anyone think you did it on the cheap. That exhaust looks like it would be thunderous running down the road.

                  Brad G ....it's loud for sure but in a good way. I got lucky and got this Hard Krome Sideburners 2 into 1 exhaust like new locally for $100. Guy "upgraded" to a Harley.

                  the white bike started off as Ohio Steve's red bike I got cheap...sold off a bunch of good parts....bought used parts mostly and did all the work myself except paint. I replaced every bearing/wearable part and did all the mechanical service possible to this bike... had a local guy paint it cheap (he did a nice job though) and after buying/selling parts etc I have less than $4k cash (plus my time/labor) in the bike total.

                    Hahaha @ "upgraded"....to each their own. I was going to ask if it were originally white or had been painted. Where did you come up with the wheels. Those look spendy! But great work on it and it looks awesome even on a budget.

                  Are the Purple ones a stock color or did you have them painted? I’m thinking of repainting mine and Purple is my favorite color but I’m thinking of going that satin sheen no gloss

                      Does the 650 pull the side car adequately, especially with cargo/passenger?

                        The 650 has good (low) gearing so it makes the most out of a little power. With 60lbs sand in the trunk, 11 year old in sidecar, fiance on back and me driving (about 500-520 lbs plus bike and sidecar which weighs about 200 lbs) I can go about 65-70 mph on flat ground full throttle in high gear. Don't have a need to go faster than that hauling passengers! It's a good combo and gets about 30 mpg hauling sidecar with weight. I would rather have a roadstar with sidecar but I got this rig all professionally set up with 15k miles on it for $2900 total....wasn't going to pass that up.

                          Too good to pass up.
