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.
