Default ANOTHER New Project, Bobber/Chopper #2

So I picked up what I've been looking for for a while, and it was FREE! It's pretty rough, and about the going rate for a bike like this in this condition, but I don't care, I have the building blocks I need to start with on the bike.
The XS 650


The engine seems to be siezed at the moment, so Ayden is out helping me throw some PB in the engine. No luck so far, but I did get it to move a tick. A little more PB and I think she'll spin over.

I'm stoked to the max and have some ideas in my head on how she'll look. After seeing the guy's XS I picked it up from I may have changed my thoughts on the direction, but in the end I think I can do something sweet with it. Remember how the last one started.

And how it sits now

More updates to come as they happen.

I've got some pics in my head that will make my first one look like an amature bike. Let's hope I can get it done though. Thanks for the kind words.

Got antsy and spent an hour out in the garage tonight stripping 'er down. I should have the motor out at the very least tomorrow, and perhaps torn into.

I remember when the XJ looked like the XS, and it wasn't all that long ago!

Heck yeah it's the XS650, I love these things. Not sure if I'll eliminate the electric start, I'd hate to have starting issues on the kicker only hahaha. I think it'll stay, but all the buttons will be hiddin so the bars are clear of crap and smooth. I'm going to clean the bars off on the XJ too. I'm even going remote brake resevoir.
