My '81, bought yesterday as my first motorcycle I've owned. Revived from a year in storage and running strong!
Cool, check out M&M Customs
This is a thing of beauty, beautiful lines nice flowy curves wow I'm impressed, but yellow really?!? Lol thanks ! Some inspiration for sure !
...i like yellow bikes...my 68 banana bike yesterday...
Headers I fabbed up, my first header wrap job too
Some mean tips Xs 650 side dumps with baffled shotgun out the back
Love the pipes are they welded up to the 45 degree angle going up or slip ons??
Looks great! I've seen suicide shifters where you activate the clutch with the lever like you have it...but is that a foot clutch as well?
Looks good! What are the front master cylinder and left hand switch specs?
Thanks man. Yeah I modified the worm gear to run a foot clutch too. It’s nice to have the foot clutch with the tall bars when you’re trying to get going from a stop while turning at the same time.
Thanks. Specs? Like the handlebar size?
I’m looking for the products you used. Thanks.
Just brought it home...
Turning poster paper templates to aluminum with a jigsaw and small English wheel
Ahh...well each of them were bought on eBay but I can’t remember the brands. All that I know is they’re American made because I don’t mess around with eBay’s Chinese stuff.
Live XS650 Sighting in Vancouver WA!
Yes, that simple statement may sound odd but this is actually, truly the only running and riding XS650 I’ve seen in over 3 Years !
Vancouver WA had the annual
“Cruise the Couv” which is a full day of rods & classic cars all day long.
This XS Special II was nicely done and the owner was very appreciative of onlookers.
Working on a new gunmetal/black color scheme and correcting the stance. Should have some updated photos soon-ish.
Took the new bike to a local bike show. No results yet (they stuffed up the scoring) but hoping for a win.
