Write about your XS650.: I wanted to build a basic no-nonsense bobber. The kind any Joe with a small amount of money could build. Picked up a descent running 79 XS650 for $800. Stripped it down in one night. Cut the back half of the frame off and took it to Koolkraft to have the hardtail welded up. Made the seat out of scrap. Fake oil can is made out of a Sugar tin I picked up at a Dept. store. Lights and turn signals are from an auto store. Exhaust was scrap given to me from a muffler shop. Not much else to it. I have less than $1,500 total in the bike now and I love it. In a sea of Harleys, this cheap old school bobber gets all the looks. And sounds great too!
