Updated Anodized Red XS650


I made a few changes since my last post, most of which were minor embellishments that included a lot of polishing and drilling lots of holes which kind of started a theme so I went with it. I’m not a great welder, so I made a new faux oil tank by piecing together two paint gun cans which comes apart in the middle like cracking open an egg so I can get to fuses without tools.  


I made a right side jockey shift that will still allow me to use the foot shifter if I get in a pinch. Mostly, I’m just psyched about getting back on the road this spring.

    I like the idea of keeping the foot shift with the right side jockey. Nice set up.
