The blue one is a 72, it has been bored out to 760cc, running 34.5mm dellorto carbs, with a 70's tracy body.

The red one is bored out to 707cc, with webcam camshaft, 32mm dellortos, it now has cast wheels front and back and a very small head light fairing.

Ok, here is the most current photo of my project.

xs650project01.jpg


I have a little bit of work left to do before it gets stripped for paint, polish, and powder coating. The color scheme is going to be gunmetal and silver. It's got a stretched and braced swingarm, modified seat rails, battery box on the swingarm, Mikuni 34mm VM carbs, Boyer ignition, hydraulic clutch, forward controls, Ural headlight, and a few other things here and there. I need to get this done so I can :bike:

I had it made to my specifications by a guy who rolls fenders. He couldn't get exactly the diameter I needed so I had to cut the slits like that and clamp it together and weld it to take about and ¾†out of the diameter. It hugs the tire pretty close and has a 2 inch skirt. I had the battery box and the struts cut out on a waterjet. Where the struts mount to the battery box (on the swingarm), I designed it so the whole fender and struts can and move back and forth about 1 3/8 so if the chain stretches or I change gearing I can still line up the fender over the tire.
