Anyone fit a YM1 tank to an XS650?

    Hey all,

    I just took delivery of an XS650 in buckets.


    No tank, no seat, no rear wheel, etc.

    So I've been tank shopping.
    Not too hot on the stock 650 tanks. the 750s are nice but the one that really caught my eye was the 1965 YM1 tank.


    I really like the lines on the tank and since I have no sheet metal for the bike I was thinking I could style the bike to fit.

    Anyone know if this has been done and if so, what needed to be modified?

    My searches came up with nothing.

    Close! Thats a YA6 tank.
    Still very cool though.

    Did you ever manage to fit the YM1 tank? I'm thinking of picking up one or a sweet YA6 I saw. Did you need to weld anything?
