Write about your XS650.: I had such a good time building my xs bobber I decided to go for a chopper look, So I took the motor out of my bobber and started this project last week. I used the original xs frame, cut it down a little, lowered it some, and I liked the candy red so much I did the chopper in the same color.

I raised up the gas tank some and used a coffin tank at that. I think it looks cool. I will decide which one rides better then stick with that, be it a bobber or chopper. The second picture is sort of the look im aiming for

    Wow, that frame/tank looks badass. I can’t wait to see the end product. Are you going for a long raked front? If so, are you planning on a springer?

    The red rocker and points cover is not needed,
    You can only put so many gems on a gypsy,so to speak.
    I would just polish those.
