180+-hours of labor, fun,fun fun!

Write about your XS650.: Here it is, my sweet little ride, its a 79 frame, with a 83 engine,83 front end and wheels, early 70s tank and headlight, I didn’t want to try to hide the fact that it was a Yamaha by using a peanut tank, which are kool, but the early xs yamaha tank and headlight bucket was the ticket for the look i was going for, which was kinda a bobber/tracker look, the rear fender is off a 74 yamaha 175 enduro, the handlebars are off a 85 yamaha xt 550, battery/electrical box was made by me, I was able to hide the elect. ignition behind the neck, under the fuel tank, hardtail/forward controls furnished by tc bros, paint is rattle can, satin and gloss black, which is temp. until i work all the bugs out, all work was performed by myself at cost of  $2400+-,180+-hours of labor, fun,fun fun!




Thanks David slavens

    Your bike inspired me to do a two tone black paint scheme on my VT1100C. I love the way it turned out.
