Write about your XS650.: Hi this is just a quick start to show how I’m getting on with my build. I originaly bought her off of ebay, and after getting her home decided to stip her down and staet again. At this present stage I have hade the frame powder coated and I have painted the forks, yokes, brackets and braces. My current task is re-wireing the hole bike as the previous owner had used all black wires.

    What is that tank from, i like it? I would (if possible) go with the same size front tire as the rear tire, and see if you can get the chrome back on those spokes. other than that i think your off to a great start by not using a sportster tank. what color do you plan on painting the tins?

    How long is the wheelbase? It looks shorter than the usual 4 over, more like 2 over. I like it. Also I like how it’s kept the stock footpeg mounts.

    Thanks for all the great feedback, the wheel base is standard. I’m not quite sure on the tanks origan but i have stencil sprayed a design which i shall try and post! Will be doing a bit more of the build at the wkend so will also put some more progress photos. Thanks again! Toby
