Recently Joined up and figured I'd get right into the documentation of my XS650 journey... As stated in my intro, I've recently received a free '79 XS650. All I know is PO said that the bike was running on only one cylinder and the bike was resisting his effors to repair it and had started to part-out it out. This is what I'm starting with: My plan is to create something like this, but with a Superbike bars, RD400 tank, black frame, fenders and XS Mag wheels. Color scheme will be black with silver and a little chrome. At this point, I'm not sure If I will be deleting the passenger accommodations and make it a 'monoposto'. I'm thinking I'll start with trying to get the engine started and assess the condition of the motor. I've also started a 'to do' list of things to repair. And list 'to buy'.
