André – I bought the motor at the end of 2009 it is a XS650SH from 1981. After two years in a damp shed was the day to start the transformation.
Everything was corroded aluminum and metal and had to be sandblasted and polished.
Most things on the bike I made from old materials metal and aluminium that i bought on the scrapyard like the forward controls the chain case and more. The engine is for 2/3 rebuild and runs smoothly and the exhaust make a nice sound.
