1975 650 Bobber

xs650-chop-noid-bob01

This is a sweet little bike. It started out as a 1975 Yamaha 650 sx. This bike has a clean title with matching numbers on the frame and motor. I did not build this bike so i dont know much about it. I have riden it and everything works as it should. It starts easily with just a few kicks. It is kick start only! It has twin makuni carbs. the carbs could use a little adjusting to idle smoother. It has a custom hardtail and awsome reptial skin spring seat. The paint is nice, i would call it a sunburnt orange. Tires on the front and Back are in great shape. The only thing i have found wrong with this motorcycle is it will not charge itself. It has a good battery and with a full charge you can ride it untill the battery goes dead. The bike is located in southern Indiana, just north of Evansville. Nick

    Nick, If you contact XSCharge or Hughs you will be able to pick up a Permanent Magnet Alternator PMA to replace the usually pretty poor standard charging system. I can vouch for the XS Charge ststem, literally a plug and play system.

    its a static charge system with a modified wiring harness……..replace the brush screws with 4mm nylon screws to un-ground the brushes. i’ve had to do it to a few bikes.

    Hate the paint LOVE the bike . I guess they can’t all be black , eh ? lol Great classic lines , less is more look . Seat mount is perfect . Not so easy to achieve . Good luck with the charging system . Definately go with the PM system if you can afford it .
