Tim Clemens 1975 XS 650


1975 XS 650

This bike, all original, had been sitting in a garage for over 5 years when I bought it.  I welded a hardtail onto the original frame, and used an aftermarket sportster tank.  I handmade the battery box, installed all new lights and gauges, and it now has a snakeskin seat.
I did many, many other odds and ends.
I molded all the weldings and then I painted the entire bike a Firemist Orange.
Thanks Tim Clemens

    You did a lot of really fine work on your own. Nice job on the cases. I’d go to hot rod nights on it for sure.
