Great score, what are you going to do with it?
Looks like the start to a TW225 6-speed project.
just wondering what to do... fix up for a spare bike at camp... or install the mottor in the 2010 tw......would really like the power and cruising speeds.....
I have an XT along with my TW and I love them both. Each definitely has their strong suit but honestly the only one that is indispensable is the TW, they make better dual sports than the XT by far. BUT if you have a riding partner then I think it would be worth fixing up just for the sheer amount of slow motion fun that can be had when those bikes are together.(pending budget, time, effort, skill etc)
Does that motor and Trans just bolt up without modifications?

I'd vote for a most excellent roady bike. Some 90/10 tires, locking box on back, awesome commuter/errand bike. When fuel prices go back up, such a unit will be worth serious duckets. Fuel predicted to head up after the elections. Narrower tires and more visible stance (taller) make the XT superior road mount than a TW. Not to mention the XT is mo able to maintain speeds suitable for roadwork.
