A 1975 xs650 brought in bits and built being inspired by many different builds viewed online. Bought as a started street scrambler project that was placed together. This is my first build and wanted to build a Bobber.

Hard tailed using a David Bird with Hardtail with zero stretch and 2″ drop which i modified were it joins to the existing frame.

Front forks  have been shaved lowered 3″

Hughes complete CDi unit fitted.

The exhausts were made with a tc Bros builder kit which were then wrapped.I have done all the fabrication myself and made as many parts as I could.

Most parts have been hand made were possible as I wanted to build a bike and not just bolt one together.

The bike is now used daily for the weekly commute. It rides and handles better than I thought it would when I began the project. In fact the Triumph Tiger now gets left behind in the garage.

The bike will be run over summer to iron out any gremlins then will be stripped for spraying over winter, which will be clear lacquer. Being the first bike I have built it has turn out far better than I could of hoped for,which will now be ridden and enjoyed.
