I picked up this 1980 xs650 about a month ago on Craigslist for $170 in portland, Or. This bike was just a rolling frame with a motor and extra parts in the box. I brought it home and the first thing i did was start to tear it down lol it was about 9pm and I just started digging in, off with the exhaust, rear springs exc. Couldnt sleep at all that night I was so excited about cutting it all up.
So the next day I take the motor out the front forks off and all the bs to where its just the frame and cut it in half lol. I have picked up some drag bars for it, painted the front and rear rims black, got a mustag tank for it and painted it red black and red lol and sanded it down to give it that rat look to it and my friends from HOPELESS INK. are going to deck out the tank for me :), I also picked up a rear fender off some sort of bike and painted the motor and what not. Its not finished yet but soon enough it will be on the road. Im ordering th
e dropseat hard tail next week and the rear white wall tire.***CANT WAIT***
