81 burnt copper Beauty


Started chopping, grinding, and unbolting right away!

Write about your XS650. :Here is my first XS bobber project. I bought it used but factory fresh (still 100% stock). My friend Clay and I started chopping, grinding, and unbolting right away! the bike is still not 100% finished but couldn’t wait to share this beauty with my fellow XS riders.



The tank is off of a Sportster, the chrome bars are 15’s and all the wires and modules have been rerouted and hid in two custom made capsules. The paint was done by myself and is burnt copper metal flake along with midnight black pearl. The pipes are black right now, but will soon be polished. I also plan to rewire the ignition and starter button to a more unseen location.


Let me know what you think!!

    Thats really cool, I did my frame similar. Is that just basically straight tube bolted on both ends? That’s rad!!!

  2. Mike D. says:

    yeah, the tubing is bolted below the curve of the backbone and at the swingarm. The bike rides very comfortably.

    Frank was turned on when he thought Lester and his son were lovers and therefore that Lester was gay, and he was missing the romance in his relationship for so long that he became infatuated with Lester and acted upon it. he couldn’t handle the rejection from Lester because Lester became all he could think about and that rejection shattered him. he wanted Lester to pay for that Thanks…
