My friend and I traded off our bikes one fine 1976 Summer Saturday. His a 1974 XS 650 and mine a 1975 Honda 750F.Funny how many despised the XS650 when it first came out, myself included.
But oddly enough, it has very much stood the test of time, to the point of my suggesting to one of our lads that he consider it as a platform for his first bike and build.
Very versatile in terms of style of build possible, in addition to simply making one roadworthy in more or less original condition from an externally visual point of view.
The depicted build very nicely holds the Yamaha colour scheme.
Very interesting build by the choice of engine.
That thing just looks waayyyyyy too long in the wheelbase.Street Scrambler - looks pretty muscular...
