I picked this bike up from a friend few years ago for $600. it was stock and rusty as hell.
I chopped the back end off and moved the shocks mounts forward a few inches in the frame, welded new shock mounts in and picked up some drop shocks to the bike would sit lower.  i narrowed the bars that the seat sits on to get rid of that boxy frame look.

custom made a battery box and used an old front fender off another xs for the rear fender. I made the bars myself and ran a internal throttle.  I have plans to do a internal clutch next so there is nothing on the bars but the grips.

shaved off the front brake mounts and painted everything flat black. Just running headers now. plans for the future include – new pipes, smaller headlight and maybe some engine mods.
