This is my 1983 xs650.  This bike started out as a junkyard bike with nothing but a frame and a motor.  I cleaned the frame of everything and a friend of mine built the hardtail.  I fabbed up all the controls and built it just the way I liked it. I then disassembled everything and started powdercoating it.  


The wheels, the frame and the front end are coated by me.  I then went to polishing the motor and shaving and polishing the lower fork legs.



I put some whitewalls and a red ostrich seat on the thing.  I drive it everywhere and it gets a ton of attention.
