A guy in Jersey built that bike last year. It was highly influenced by the one you are talking about.

Re:XS650's 3 Years, 12 Months ago  
I've owned a half a dozen of those XS650's. Absolutely love 'em!

My first one was a '72, the red and white one... prettiest paint they ever put on 'em.

I rode that across the nation 3 times in '73 and '74 when I was in the Army and taking one month leave.

I'd buy another again in a heartbeat!

Plus one on the kick start. Since I put the pamco ignition on my 79, she's first orsecond kick every time. The starter is hard on the battery, and my starter gear spring is weak, so it's just as likely to grind as it is to catch. I just leg it every time.


Same here no more than 2 kicks everytime !

Great bike stock or modified.

Remember guys a 650 was a big bike in its day. I rode plenty of 650's and smaller all over the place.

XS650 has a sweet tight little package for doing builds with of any kind. I'd chop one but it would look way too small under me.
