XS650 Slobber

Post by pommychopper » Tue May 12, 2009 7:43 pm

Got me an XS coutresy of SGT and midnight. :D

So Saturday afternoon i spent a couple of hours removing unsightly items from it and replacing them with "leftovers"!!

Ditched, tank, side panels, indicators, front and rear lights, rear guard and bars

Replaced with, the old bars off my Z650 when the bird used to ride it, a headlight from Roger, Z650 tailpiece (of course), one of my many Skirtster tanks, a supertwat muffler, aftermarket taillight and mini indicators.

Paint, Kawasaki green with a special bit of black artwork on the tank!!

So far;

you can do, but no way am I taking credit for that rubbish :lol: it was the main reason I wanted another tank made in the first place, well that, and the tank I saw in my head, :shock: come to think of it, how did you get it out by the way without cutting a hole :lol:

PC, I think a good example of what can be done cheaply and quickly to 'unstock' a bike. A good lesson for the new guys who have limited finances or are an on interim bike.

Halco is no more Chuckster, Tony topped himself years ago!
Very sad indeed.

The kit is from a dude over here, with pistons made for the job, not remachined SP370 pistons, rode an 840cc XS some years ago and was great fun so looking forward to sorting this beaut out! :D

As for your comments Spokesy, Meh!! :D

Perhps I'm a bit thick, but i sat there waiting for the photos that wern't there to load. Perhaps I'm too busy and too impatient. I actually assumed the first poster had made a mistake and didn't know how to edit his post... and as for smiley faces the little ones drive me up the wall but that big one... brrrrr!
