First xs build. Did this a couple years ago.  Put all the stuff that would make it kick only. Can’t remember what all that stuff was.

Chopped the backbone and raised the rear a few inches to level the tank a little.

Suzuki ls 650 rear shocks.

Handlebars by me.

Rear sissy bar, seat and seat area by me.

Tank under seat for electrical is a couple old fire extinguishers put together.

Forward controls by me.

Tank is powder coated with metal flake and clear coated. (local powder coat guy)

Headlight is just a cheap headlight off of ebay.

Tail/brake light is a little skateboard wheel with a 1157 led bulb in the middle I made.


Drilled the wheels.

All in all this was a blast to build. Most of all its a BLAST TO RIDE!!!! Been riding for almost 40 years and this is my favorite bike I’ve ever built and ridden! Love it!
