1980 XS650 bobbed out

noid-xs1

Write about your XS650.: Bought this bike for $500 bucks about a month ago, and let me tell you its been worth every penny.  The bike runs mint and came completely stock before i started bobbing it out.  Put on some clip on bars, took off the fenders, cut off the back part of the frame that held the back seat, put the single seat on it, painted as much of is as i could flat black, and some steel wool to help sharpen the chrome.

Bought bolt blinkers as well, can’t tell they are on it unless they are turned on.  Problem is, i need to shorten the wires for the blinker assembly due to the new handlebars being much shorter then the stock handlebars.  Also purchased an LED tailight, but it was not in when i wanted to ride it so i mounted the old taillight…which i ended up liking a lot better so far, even though it’s huge.  Will be buying a new clutch and throttle cable that are shorter as well, but for now this is what i got.  Let me know what you think, and any other suggestions that might look/go well with what i have so far!

    At the very least man you need to put some shorter rear shocks on there.
