1981 xs650 torque puddle1 20145 600x350

Big Case – I was given this 650 by a dear friend. I’ve been working on it for a year and a half so far. I  love this web site. Thanks to all of you xs nation. I got a lot of ideas here . Here is my version of what a xs should look like. Its not done yet. Its in bare metal right now. And the engine is stock. 21″front tire and a 18″ rear with a 200mm tire. A chopper Gary offset sprocket. I custom made the rear hard tail, and springer front end,and rear fender. I also modified the h.d.tank. Added a 1 to 2 intake,hydraulic clutch.Thank you for the website. I really enjoy it. Thanks also to my wonderful wife and kids for being patient with the build. And special thanks to my bro The Zook. Ill send more pics when she is all done. We call her Torque puddle. Continue Reading →

79 XS Kult Klassic1 201416 600x416

Ian Pare – Kult Klassics – This bike started out as a parts bike that had come with another complete XS a while back.   Everything on this bike was made in house here at Kult Klassics in British Columbia.   I always liked the old bmx loop style frames, and after looking at a couple I bent up a hardtail following the original lines of the stock frame.  The tank was a love hate relationship. I shaped it and dished it from scratch, but when I pressure tested it, my valve stuck open and I blew the thing inside out. Spent the next three days gently massaging in back to shape.

Marks 1980 XS6501 20143 600x445

Mark- I bought it as a running bike (pic with red tank) with the wrong tank, & sidepanels held on with zip ties, it was orignally a US Custom model & rode it like that for a while, the engine sounded ok but it started smoking badly, so I took it off the road for a while for a top end rebuild & a few mods. While I had the engine apart I had it bored out to 707cc & fitted Wiseco forged pistons & did a little porting on the head & fitted new cam chain guides, everything else was in great condition so no further engine work was needed, while the engine was out I removed the starter & gear & blanked off the hole, so I can get away with a small battery which now sits under the swingarm. The electrics are in a box behind the engine.  Continue Reading →
