My name is Dirk and I ´m from Germany. Me and my best buddy restored a XS 650. We read some XS magazines and saw a few pictures of the modifications. Some of the modifications are not possible in Germany, but we did our best.

I really wanted a model that’s older than me, so I decided on a ’76 XS 650 / 447.

We spent two years of working on the machines in a garage. There are still a few things to modify, but the next winter is coming soon ….

Regards, Dirk

    I really like the shortened side panels. You have the panel-less look but still have somewhere to hide “gubbins”. Nice.
