81 XS Bobber

81-xs-bobber-kovach-3After looking at all of these cool xs 650s I figured I would post a few picks of mine that my brother and I built a few years ago.

 

 

It is a 81 and I traded a set of used tires for it. It had been sitting outside for a few years so it was pretty crusty, but with a little time and effort this is what we came up with.

Some of the mods we did were a drop seat kit for the frame.

 

Custom made battery box

 

Old 30s Plymouth spare tire cover made into a rear fender

 

Vintage Harley gas tank reshaped to fit the frame

 

Shaved lower legs on the frontend

 

Custom made oil cooler and tach plug

 

Custom made velocity stacks

 

Custom made foot pegs

 

21inch front wheel

 

And I’m sure there are other things I’m forgetting but whatever.

 

I hope you all enjoy
