Here’s a bike that just got finished up from a fresh re-build.
It’s called THE SILVER SURFER
The bike was a 1977 Yamaha XS650
It has been equipped with a super strong running motor from an ’82 model that had only 4K on the clock and it has been converted to an electronic ignition using a DYNA II ignition set-up
Everything has been gone through and any parts with apparent wear were replaced with new ones.xs650-chop-noid-THE_SILVER_SURFER_02

Lots of stuff has been done to this bike
It was completely dis-mantled and cleaned, sand blasted, and painted with epoxy enamel then clear coated
There are cool little custom touches are all over the bike
Lots of satin polished aluminum parts
An original ’74 seat was used along with a modified gas’77 tank
