Write about your XS650.: This bike started as a dirty caked on greasy whore of a runner, then one day I decided to change up the front end to once inch. Roughly 600 beers later and six months I had the bike stripped polished, painted and replaced everything old on the motor.
Im more of a cafe racer type of guy. Like to go fast, actually real fast on the twisties, although usually a Euro trash kind of guy I have always been a big fan of Jappers, always have been since my first XR80 back in 79, so digging into an XS for the first time was a real treat. The frame is a G&S no stretch, tank and foot pegs are G& S as well. Front end has a one inch set up, handle bars are one inch Keystones from my good friends over at Biltwell, bunch of solid guys that make quality products and they actually like motorcycles.
rebuilt forks and really neato Fork Covers made by Benji. The tail of the bike has a West Eagle alloy single rib fender that I had to grind the hell out of to make it work and the tail light is an Norton repro that I got from England. My buddy “Cop Todd” helped me out with the wiring to make it only a kicker and I had an alloy battery box that is riveted together by a real talented guy that is an aircraft mechanic.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, I really put some time into it, I had a vision and went for it. If you would like a bike like this go ahead and contact me and I would be happy to talk with you about making that happen.
