    My '81, bought yesterday as my first motorcycle I've owned. Revived from a year in storage and running strong!

    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.

    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.

    5D50EB9B-4725-4657-ABE0-DE981F417D1E.jpeg 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.

    DSC04268-Edit.jpg Working on a new gunmetal/black color scheme and correcting the stance. Should have some updated photos soon-ish.
  18. Took the new bike to a local bike show. No results yet (they stuffed up the scoring) but hoping for a win. IMG_20190721_103105.jpg IMG_20190721_074311.jpg
