This is a 1980 xs that I got for free off of craigslist. At first I was going to keep it simple and build a cafe out of it but inspiration struck and I built this little bobber.

I didn’t have a pipe bender so I packed the tubes with sand,heated them with a rosebud and bent them around forms. The electrical box was fabbed from an oil filter housing from a 49 merc.

Tank, fender and seat were all ebay items. Made a frame jig from scrap steel. It just goes to show that some simple garage equipment is all it takes.
