New project







I decided to finally do something with the '71 XS650 I had sitting around in boxes.  The direction of this project is some sort of cafe/street tracker fusion bike.  I'm picking away at this while taking breaks from tank welding sessions.  I like looking at stuff for a long time, sometimes too long.  I guess it helps keep me from rushing into bad decisions.
The basic frame bends are done and pieced together.  This baby got a new backbone and tail section which will clean the lines up when all together.  Aside from that, the frame retains the stock engine cradle and swing arm mounts.

I'd have to get him a chair to stand on. I see sit-ups in his future too.
