She's going through some modifications. I'll post pics soon.
Hey...been a long time. Life took over for a while. I'll try to get back to everyone. Time to finish before fall so I get some riding in
Wow. Looks like you put a lot of work into this. Looks great!
Thanks Bosen. She still has a way to go.
Finally, someone bobbed out a bike and didn't just flat black everything.
it looks like the frame, doesn't the tire hit the fender when you go over bumps?
is your rear fender attached to the frame or the hub of the wheel?
Actually the rear fender is attached to the swing arm. Whole thing moves as one. 1/2" gap between tire and fender
hello, nice bike, so I have the same bike and i chopped the rear off. i kept the springs so I'm having an issue with my tire hitting the fender and seat when the springs compress.
Thanks Sal. I mounted my fender to the swing arm. All moves as one.
I've got a 81 xj650 I'm wanting to hardtail any tips you can give or web sites to visit
XJBikes is the best group to get this info. You have years of experience with these guys
How did you choose your handle bar controls? I am having a hard time finding some that will work for my 82 750 build?
I had to buy longer cables. 6" I believe. Got them from Bike Bandit
Can you point me toward some larger tires that will fit this bike stock with no modifications? as i am building a bobber from the same bike looking for a little fatter rear tire and a nice meaty front
Hey Brandon...unfortunately because of the gear drive swingarm, the largest you can go is a 130.
