“Ophelia”~ She may not be to pretty, but she’s a hell of  a ride!

William – This is a 1979 XS650 affectionately known as “Ophelia.” She has a TC Brothers hard tail kit, a stripped bare frame and tank. The tank, chain tensioner and sprung seat from Monstercraftman. The headlight and bars are unknown and used from a pile of parts. The mids are used rear sets from a GSXR750 racebike (I think). The pipes are welded from a universal kit.

Wheels are the stock mags painted black. Lowered forks and brakes are stock front and rear discs with steel braided lines. The motor is stock XS650 (for now) with a Pamco hall effect sensor setup with “Ultimate Coil” and a Hughs Handbuilt PMA. It’s “Kick Start” only with a small 12V battery in the fake oil tank under the seat. he features a hand fabbed a “Jockey Shifter” setup with a foot operated “Suicide Clutch.”
