Jason – I just finshed my second Xs650 bike, so i thought to post a few pics. Been looking for another xs for a year or so come to find out an old guy i work with had one he bought brand new back in 79.

The bike was mint , almost a shame to strip it and cut it in half, oh well two months later i finally finshed it so here it is.

    looks great! fongish treatment on the footpegs, f’real everything flows,the tank and fender, with those bars!!!! nice job, not a particular fan of the springer front, but having said that i think it adds to this bike thanks for sharing

    I would never get out the driveway trying to choose which to ride. Great job mate, both!

  4. Wild Man says:

    How hard was it to fit the springer? I’ve been wanting to put one on my XS.

  5. Darryl says:

    Love the springer front end! What mods did you do to the frame? Can you give more details.

    Nicely done. Clean, and I dig the frontend!

  9. mike lytle says:

    Jason, your the perfect person to ask this question. how does the springer front end compare to the stock xs front end? what is the ride like comparing the two? which one corners the best? which one do you like riding the best? thanks, mike

  10. jason says:

    The stock xs frontend is a much better ride for sure ,cant really compare the cornering where as the new bike is 6 inches longer, lower and bigger wheels

  11. Michael says:

    What kind of rear end is this? Very interested, its exactly what I’m looking for.

  12. Jason Lawyer says:

    Hey man I was wondering were I could find a rear master cylinder for a tc bros hardtail mikes xs has given me the run around for over2 1/2 months if you could help with any info it would be awesome thanks alot man love both bikes!

  13. jason says:

    For Micheal, i made the hardtail from scratch. Grinded, bent, weld all that fun stuff. Feel free to copy it from the pics if u want.

  14. jason says:
