Nathan’s Field Found xs650

A good friend found this particular xs in a field in Alabama. It was an early 80s heritage special.

I had never completely rebuilt a motorcycle and took the opportunity with this bike, seeing as it was seized completely from the motor to every nut and bolt. Tearing the motor down, it needed a lot of love.

I replaced and renewed everything needed inside and punched the cylinders to 705cc. Fitted an electronic ignition and vm34s for reliability and performance. The tank is a modified Bridgestone and everything else was fabricated or modified by me.

I finished it off with some custom stainless exhaust with a cone engineering muffler.
