Candied it with candy brandywine.

Write about your XS650.: Well got laid off so I have been trying to get some work in on my xs. I got my front end fixed. I lowered it 3″ I finished welding up the frame mods I did. I got my cables marked to send to 650 central so he can cut them to fit.



I got these polished covers to use. Mine were busted. I painted the motor with the H-D sand finish black. It came out really flat was hoping for a more satin finish. I took my grinder with a 1/4 thick grinding blade and cut the fins to make it kinda look like there were diamond cut. This is the mock up tank I made. I flaked it out with 3 different sizes of silver paint then candied it with candy brandywine. My seat pan came yesterday I hope to get it mounted tomorrow.


I cleaned up the welds and striped the frame. I painted it with truck bed liner looks awesome. You should get a can and try it. I cut the old wheels apart and powder coated them relaced and trued. I went with the shinko tires a 100/90/19 on the front and a 120/90/18 on the rear. Anyways here she is. I am really digin how she is looking. I love how the tank sets the black off.
