This is a 1979 Xs 650. It has a Kawasaki ZX10 front end. Hand made top aluminum yoke.
Purchased my 91 xs 650 in 2010 on the way home from our honeymoon.
The inspiration for this project came surprisingly from a Bloomingdales catalog with a vintage World War II motorcycle on the cover. Something about the look really appealed to me. After doing some research on the military motorcycles from that era & realistically evaluating my riding environment, I decided I wanted a modern interpretation of a WWII military motorcycle with a more modern power plant and an updated braking system.
82 model. We built custom blinkers front and rear. We build a one of a kind electronics box under the seat to get the smooth triangle look.
1978 xs650se that started its life in Iowa USA, imported to Scotland in 1999.
I thought I would send this in and get your opinions. It is an 81 XS that I built last winter. Nothing really special but it does turn heads. Not sure if good or bad!!
