After 1 month of cleaning, obtaining tools, and deciding what the bike would resemble I've removed and cataloged all parts off the XJ550 and begun to remove most of the paint from the frame and remove the engine for cleaning. This is a slow and steady process.

Ever seen a custom Yamaha XJR400 before? Neither had we. This little beauty is from Ellaspede of Brisbane, Australia.

After more than 2 months I've finally removed the rear suspension. Now to make planes for a rear tire and sprocket that will allow me to add disc brakes to the rear and to the front? Hmmm...I'm thinking new forks rims, and brakes....expensive maybe...now it's a waiting game....

Let the cleaning begin one section at a time! You got to love these kinds of power tools for the small in-between places. :D

With the engine removed cleaning was possible. So now I've begun the cleaning and rust removal process with attempts to paint sections that I can reach.

My first bike project obtained in June 2013 to be completed March 2014. XJ550 was under a tarp outside for 4 years. The bike is prime for rebuilding. This is a catalog of the rebuilding process.
