 :-DIt's good to be here. Been looking at what I can do about building a stream liner from my variee collection of XS 650 motors, now 750 CC kitted and 90 degree cranks!(very soon ) I iwll be strating on the XSGP 750, the precurser to the XStreamliner in---- a while. First things first, I need more info to start the build.I guess getting a rule book is the first step. Then I will read commnets by all of you then start in when I need some info!

It's great to see that there is an active comunity regausrding the streamliners. I hotught that may be there wasn't this kind of resourse to be albe to cling to during any part of my build up. Just drawings now but when I need to find out about other items then LOOK OUT------ Avallanch time.

Metal fabricater, custom welder, painter, MC mechanic 17+ years = " They call me or I call me 'MR SUDO engineer' = knows just enought o keep from continualy pouring hot water on ones self for extended periods of time"????? Hope that made sence?

I don't build up stuff until I can't get the "NO" answers anymore.

Thanks for being here. It is greatly appreciated. WOW !!!!!!!!!! :-o You guys are really hear :roll: :evil: :mrgreen:

 :-DIt's great to see all of you gathered here. I thought there wasn't going to be any one with this type of message board. gald I found you and it's great to be here ..... finally. :-o

Looking to build my own, of couse, but in a few more years as I don't have a clue as to what to do to build the XStreamliner. I never build any thing unitl I can't get the "NO" or the TOO many ???? response.


MC mechanic for 17+ years, metal fabricater, custom welding, metal working, and free hand designing.

I refer to my self as a "SUDO-Engineer" = :-o :evil: 1 how knows how to keep from pouring hot water over one's body parts on a continuosfaulty endevour. (AWWWW .......no spell check....) :cry:

So this is a start of something XSivly Smmple at first glance????K? NOT? Oh well it never hurts to wake up after a short snooze....

Great site guys !!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D
At first it seams XSivly simpe but after some time...it's actual XSivly complicated

Contact Rick white at Autopower in San Diego, he should be able to help with the upgrades.

Yes, I would love to have Autopower do it, but they are too busy in the forseeable future.  I called for an appointment last month, and they said call back this month.  I call this month, and they say call in August.

I'm pretty much getting that from anyone who has done a SCTA rollcage.  Seems most folk do it themselves; the shops that do it for money are all booked.

I've been trying to find a shop to put in the SCTA rollbar for 6 months now with no luck.  So this weekend I fire up the stick welder and start to practice.

I tried to fill out a profile but it didn't change.

We are in Corona, California.  That is halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles.
