77 xs springer

Write about your XS650.: Bought a 77 for $200 and used the cradle part of the frame and motor.  Completely re-did the motor and built the back part of the frame.  Got ahold of a springer front end from 1970 and cut about 2 ft off of it so i could keep the same rake.  Then i just kept building from that.  I built it in one summer whenever i wasn’t at work.  Grand total of $700 because i did all the paint myself at my dads body shop.

    springer is cool! Would love to see a big 23″ wheel up front, that would be awesome.

    Hows that Springer ride? I have a DNA on one of my bikes and hate it will NEVER use one again. Wonder if a early model quality made one rides better
