XS650 build - ebb0tk - 09-27-2016

Hi, new to forum and a new project started =)

Ill be posting pictures along as i go with this build. 

For now :
5" stretch 
4" ground clearance 
18" rear wheel
21" XT500 front wheel


RE: XS650 build - rene53pontiac - 09-27-2016

yeah , that length looks good i think


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 09-28-2016

Ive begun the mockup, had a few parts over from last build so i thought i mostly use what i got left over =)

A bracket for centering speedo, and also the handlebars are xs650 original i think. 

Ill figure out what height i want in the front end, then make spacers to put inside each forkleg.

Gonna check wheel/sprocket alignment before i continue.


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 10-29-2016

Rear wheel spacers done to the custom hardtail.

Had a chance to take it down from the lift and have a look at the stance. Next up is to check that the wheels are alignin then off to lowering the forks =)


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 11-13-2016

Forks shaved and lowered.
Rear wheel aligned spot on in frame and sprockets aligned perfectly right away.

Now off to measuring for a sissybar and get a p-nut tank on there.


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 11-14-2016

Got some time to remove some mounts to get the peanut on there.

Yeah these tanks are used on alot of builds i know but i do like the look on them Tongue


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 01-05-2017

Havent updated in a while but ive been waiting on some parts.
Recently installed some new mids from Jumpstreet Custom.
Waiting on my sissybar to arrive

But i did a new brake rod for the mids, bent some 8mm stainless rod with hole drilled and then welded some m6 threaded rod to it.

Turned out pretty good.


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 01-14-2017

Started mounting rear fender today and its set, only mounts on the sissy to rear fender left then off to seat mounting =)


RE: XS650 build - ebb0tk - 01-22-2017

Tank mounts welded and a stop for the drum hub aswell.

Now im ready for inspection 1/2 here in Sweden.

Ive started making a rigid pan aswell, ill get some photos of that when its all leathered up.

For now it stands like this:
