I’ve featured a wide variety of XS650s in stock and custom forms over the years – here’s another one of the latter that will probably be polarizing. What do you think?
The top end has been rebuilt with new pistons, rings, and a ported intake/exhaust. It’s got electronic ignition and a PMA stator to complement the new wiring and fuse block, the latter of which is hidden inside the Harley headlight. The bike has been lowered three inches in the front and rear and it features drilled rotors with the rear master cylinder from a Suzuki GSX-R. None of that matters if you don’t like the way it looks.
This custom XS placed second in the Vintage class at the Plant City Bike Fest. Find it for sale here on Craigslist for $8,000 (though the seller also says $14,000 in the listing) near Brandon, Florida.
