Dan – my first build. 1977 xs 650. It took 10 months and was nothing but fun!!!! Just took my time and it all worked out. I rewired it myself. lowered the seat via VISUAL IMPACT. 16 inch rear tire 18 front. Designed and built the battery box. Then cut down the original fender. Spray bombed the frame and top end of motor. GM color on the tins. I forgot the paint number lol. It runs real strong. Hope you like it i know i do.
The brat is done
Visual impact brat kit.
Reworked the rear fender and made my own mount spacers.
Made the battery box
Did all the wiring myself. ( first time i ever tried this )
Friend painted the tins ( GM color )
Got the head light on ebay its a old one off a tractor i think.
Tank came off an old sportster. got it on ebay.
This build was a great way to spend a long iowa winter. And believe me if i can do this any one can. Dan aldeman
