It is an XS650B 1975 model that was butchered into a dirtbike and destined for scrap.
It is built entirely from all stock components from lots of other bikes which makes for simple replacement if needed in the future.
Some aftermarket items like mufflers and speedo.
Major modifications include Forks,wheels and monoshock rear end from FZR400R.
Brakes are twin 4pot Brembo running on 320mm floating discs.
All the chassis geometry setup was based on the FZR400R ,considered to be the finest handling bike of the era.
Tank is SR500 and All other body work was made by me using fiberglass.
The entire build was done in my home workshop in Nth NSW ,nothing was shopped out other than the cylinders rebore and frame sandblast .
Engine mods include 34mm Mikuni roundslides and adaption of Yam RD350 LC alternator, doing away with the overweight original unit.
The bike is now currently Registered in NSW and Rides superbly.
Parts Worked On:
- Chassis, Electrical System, Engine, Fuel System
