Today is an excellent day in that I just picked up my second xs650. Found it on CL a few towns over. Checked it out yesterday and own it today. It’s a 1980 XS650SG with the rear disc break. Its so clean and beutiful it will almost break my heart to cut it up….almost. My first one (https://xs650chopper.com/2009/10/update-on-budget-build/) was a pretty mild chop, this one I plan to go a little farther.
The plan is still pretty basic. Hardtail, 12 inch ape, spinger seat, etc. I would also like to extend the opportunity so come of the parts on this bike as I will not be using a lot of it. For example, the windshield, sissy bar, luggage rack, saddle bags, fork brace, tank, fenders, mirrors (two sets), headlight, turn signals, bars etc. I also have a complete ’82 engine. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure something out. Cheers and happy chopping, I know I am! -Bykerbrad
