Write about your XS650.: For starter i work at a local Japanese motorcycle shop, this is where i came across this bike, it was the original owner trading it in on something a bit newer, already having 2 xs650’s in the works the bike caught my eye. I talked my boss into getting me a great price on it and very quickly brought it home. over the past winter i stripped the bike and painted everything!
I tore the motor down and rebuilt it from the bottom up, all new gaskets, made the custom exhaust out of 350 scrambler headers and alot of heat. Took the original seat pan and cut it to the shape i was looking for and had my local seat guy go to town on it. i was going for the bratstyle theme, but got mixed between that and a dirt tracker.
It was a great ride at the begining of the summer then i let it sit in the garage while i was distracted by so many other things, just a week ago i went to fire it up as its now for sale and it only runs on the choke, i realy don’t even have time now to take the carbs off and clean them, so i am selling it as it sits, looking to get $1500.
lots of custom 1 off parts on this bike, great sound, beautiful candy red tank, all the chrome is excellant condition and like i said before all the pain is new, even the forks have been gone through as well, steering bearing replaced with a tapered roller style, swing arm bushing are updated to bronze, new chain great rubber, honda cr125 front brake master with speigler line. if interested email [email protected]. thanks for checking it out!
