So i picked up my 1980 xs650 from my college buddy a few weeks ago for 200 bucks. I’ve never ridden…this outta be intresting. I am big into the VW car scene and am already hooked in the xs scene. first thing i took on was shaving the emblem off of the tank and giving it a matte black paint job as well as the side covers. turned out ok for my first time tring it so the addiction grows.
