1980 Yamaha XS650

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

I started this as a budget build to use up left over parts and keep it simple. This objective only lasted about a week into the build before it got completely out of control.

What motivated you to start your project?

I had just finished up a Scrambler project and had a lot of parts and a lot of ideas left over.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

I converted the bike to a Monoshock rear suspension while using the stock swingarm.

What are you most proud of?

I spent a lot of time just detailing the parts I used and concentrated on contrast rather than just chrome.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

So far everyone really seems to like it.
