Write about your XS650.: First : sorry for my bad english. I don’t practive enough.
This is my XS. A 1H1 ’77. I bought it 2 years ago for my birthday (40). It was in bad general state (it hasn’t run for 2 years, hasn’t got any speedometer, starter system, etc … ) but – rock’n roll is not dead – I took it at home the day I bought it (ride of 200km under water). When I dissassmblated it, I found an handlerbar in 2 parts, electric items missing, etc … !
I made a mecanical check-up, lowered the front, took out the front fender, modified the rear one, rebuilt the handlebar, changed battery, simplified the electric wiring, lowered the headlight, assemblated a Tail light baouht on ebay (Ford 27 I thing) and lot of other details.
I’m studying the stage 2 : hardtail, trumpet mufflers, short rear fender, front wheel 21′, other tires (old school),
