1979 xs 650.  Cosmetically hammered, this Florida bike was given to me as a non-running derelict.  It had sat outside, unlicensed, for 15 years. the bike was dis-assembled, sand blasted, and repainted.

It has a 4 inch extended swingarm, and harley style rear fender fabrication to match the longer wheelbase.  2 inch longer front fork tubes.  geared high for the road.  now planning a 2 into 1 intake manifold.
