    I would miss your posts as motorcycle rebuilds are what I am interested in. Its nice to see an XS 650 not being chopped for once and I am looking forward to the completion of your project. Its a fact that motorcycles are not of interest to many members but the techniques involved in restoring cover many areas of possible use to others.

    Allen Millyards web site has a useful trick for finishing welds on exhaust pipes which may be of interest to you, about 9 mins in.

    I have used this idea for refurbishing rusty kickstart levers etc.

    Funnily enough, that's pretty much what I did, except I used an aluminium oxide grinding belt turned inside out. Only good for final finishing though really.
