” Its a 1980 xs650 special. I bouht it from a guy at work that had lost interest in his cafe bike project. I wanted to do a very low budget rat bike chop…with a bit of Bratstyle inspiration. To date I have stayed under budget but I would like to hardtail this in the future. Mods and add-ons are as follows. Relocated top shock mounts, trimmed unwanted tabs, epoxy coated wheels, bicycle pedal on kicker, wrapped header pipes with flare tips, new Biltwell bars, kickstand, solo seat, headlight and 10″ short shocks. ” Spoke
