This is a 1980 XS650. It has forward controls to make for a little more legroom. The Exhaust as been re-routed to come out single side. You would think it would be hard to tune, but it starts and runs great. The pod filters are actually for a cb750, but they work. The seat pan was made from an old stop sign and then covered with automotive foam and crocodile skin vinyl.

The bars are mounted on 7 or 8 inch risers. Future plans include 12″ baby apes, white wall tires, white grips, and perhaps a re-done battery box in a faux oil bag.  The paint is rattle can copper stripes under satin black. Its motor has an unknown # of miles, but has definitely been apart for rings at one time or another. Definitely a fun bike and my 1st road bike!
