Hey guys, I'm Pha!L from Northern Nevada, 50 miles east of Reno. Computer Programmer, skateboarder, BMX, rock crawler, and now biker. My father-in-law gave me a Honda CL350 to build up but decided to move on after finding that I could not title it. I did however take a motorcycle course and get my license (Oct 2011). This is my first motorcycle. I found a XS650 in Vacaville that was already hardtailed and built up pretty well. It still needed a few things finished on it, but I didn't like some of the things that were done. I wanted to make the bike mine. So I got to chopping. I did the pipes, seat, remounted the fender, new taillight and license plate bracket, swapped the carbs, jetted, re-wired, battery box, electric box, BMX peg kicker, and a whole bunch of other stuff all custom by me in my little garage with no good tools. I swapped the bars, new chain, new sprockets (17/30). I need to finish the seat, sissy bar, and a bit of the wiring. Next I want to do 270Â° re-phase, PMA, Pamco, and 750 kit. I can't wait for spring when I'll be riding every day. I'm having a blast already.
