      nice dude
      chop it up

      Plans are heading more in the direction of cafe. I like the body position of being stretched over the tank, plus I think it suits my personality better.
      and i can't weld lol

      Do the 650 and 750 have the same frame? I was looking into getting a 750 but I wanted to grab the hardtail kit from tcbroschoppers which is made for a 650. Any similarities in frame construction?

      Interesting concept. Couldn't tell, but I'm guessing the clutch lever is on the shifter arm. Also, not sure how long it will be before the paint or powder coat starts to crack on the wheels, due to spoke flex. I don't understand the need for that custom belly pan. To me, it takes away from the awesome nakedness of a bobber.

      Yea I really like it overall but some of the details I don't like such as the size of the belly pan and shifter.

      Is it possible to combine the XS650, something along the lines of this:

      With the fork, controls, wheels/tires and brakes from something like this?

      No. Chain drive 650 twin and a shaft drive 750 triple.

      That's nothing. Before I got hit (which resulted in C2,C3 & C4 damage, neck reversion, etc) I rode out West (from IL) on a rigid pan head. Buy a kidney belt and enjoy being able to ride a rigid.. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I'm honestly sad I can no longer physically ride 'em, thanks to my neck & back problems.

      Oh and when you guys hardtail 'em are you slugging the lower rails and doing a plug weld on the slug and then butt welding where the hardtail meets up,or ?
      Anyway, you guys are building some pretty nice stuff. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      i saw that white xs on ebay. that is a well put together bike. It said on the auction that the belly pan is modeled after a ww2 fighter plane i dont really get it but its a sweet ride!
      to another xs rider!

      this xs650 is pretty close but this is more of a street tracker.

      ya you can do it, you would have to cut off the neck tube
      and weld it to an xs frame, an make some crazy gusets
      but it could be done

      Probably easier than that, with a bearing swap. Take some measurements (or do some research on the stem of the front end and the neck of the XS) and check out allballsracing.com
      Some tight XSs on here! I'm working on a 78 basket right now.. Going softail custom rather than full chop.

      I'd probably put some kind of small rear fender on it though.
