Write about your XS650.: This bike fell into my lap when I found out that my Mother-in-law had it nicely tucked away in her garage.  When I heard she wanted to get rid of it or possibly sell it I was immediately interested.  I didn’t know anything at the time about bikes but soon after would learn a lot very fast.

She started to realize I was interested in the bike and soon after just gace it to me, she said it was for being such a great son-in-law and treating her daughter so well. After i got the bike into my possession I immediately brought it up to my buddies hot rod/bike shop and began chopping, welding, and ordering parts and accessories.  Now it is lookin pretty good and should be road worthy in about a week or so.

    This was the direction I was heading with my ride. Is that a 21 up front?

    It’s definitley snow dude…SUCKS! I hate snow…but when the summers come its very nice…I would love to live somewhere warm all the damn time but not going to happen. Anyway yeah it was actually a pretty easy build. I am just going to finish up the wiring tonight and get my battery box mounted…I mounted my coils nicely tucked in between my air filters…can’t even really see em…Keep you updated!
