1980 Yamaha XS650

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

I wanted a bike that was lighter weight and lower in height.

What motivated you to start your project?

I had just completed a Flat Track bike and the garage work area was empty so I thought it might be nice to have one that was street worthy for a change.

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

Inverted forks and rear set controls, along with a braced swingarm and home made high pipe exhaust system.

What are you most proud of?

There are a lot of hand made parts and modifications to this build. Real simple, “If they don`t sell it just make it”

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

I get a lot of comments about the fabrication and attention to detail. They like it.
