I have a 1975 Yamaha XS650, bought it from a friend of a friend who bought the bike new. I’ve had the bike for about 2 years now, was completely stock when I got it. So one day me and a friend started drinking and took the sawzaw to it.
I ended up giving the bike away after that, I didn’t want anything to do with it. So about 3 weeks about the kid gives me the bike back and i just went to town on it. I chopped the frame made custom hard tail with about a six inch stretch. Made custom 10 inch apes, custom battery/ electrical box, made a custom chain tensioner. I got a sportster peanut gas tank and a rear trailer fender.
Made custom forward controls out for miscellaneous parts. Bike still is not finished but getting close just waiting on money to finish should be done by next month. Going to make custom tail light license plate holder. Going to get four inch extended fork tubes, white wall tires front and back and a few other things. but its still a work in progress.
