Title: Xs650 tracker/brat
Post by: CQ Custom Designs on Aug 27, 2017, 20:07:27
I know that so many people have done this bike but I've learned so much so far. Just wanted y'all to see where I'm at. I'll continue to upload pictures as I move along (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/706cc2afb44592c2bed754465b21f747.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/f544bddc0861642eb735d7c848bb49e5.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/ade3c4642741e19c628b78eeeb413f18.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/c96b096194d990081621c2e9c765d35c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/f34fb202c4d51e44ba54f176eb535c59.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170827/de1549e60c41132262387faa41ca0428.jpg)

Using a fz09 headlight and taillight. I'm defiantly taking this guys battery box out, it looks like poop, gotta redo that. I'm in the process of getting the bike started then I can continue to put all the parts on

Good to see you here man!

The battery box was his first attempt at welding, I'd agree it looks like shit haha

Can I run no battery with with my original points ignition or do I have to change to an electronic ignition. You can't really see the welds cause they were ground down I just don't like the battery box style. Plus I looked at you 500 and the fab work was amazing I want mine to look that good

First and second attempts. Those are my buddies they helped me with the seat today. Clay worked very well ass you can see my edges are much better. First attempt was just tape.

I just ordered a radian rear wheel off eBay to match, considering selling my spoked rims with brand new bearings and Dunlop tires never been rolled on. Let me know if you interested.
