I picked this bike up by trading my 2000 CBR 600 for it. This is my first chopper/bobber and I am really enjoying it. Besides the hardtail and other obvious alterations this 1978is XS650 is pretty much stock. My biggest problem is getting the engine to start and run reliably. Some days it runs great and some days it shoots the carbs off.
I plan on tearing the whole thing down this winter and have it roll out of the garage and start on the first kick and maintain a proper idling engine speed.
