Super-Clean XS650 Cafe Racer
Came across this one over at XS650Chopper.com. Most of the bikes over there are more chopper / bobber than I'm really into (which is fine, it's called XS650chopper after all); I'm more into the street trackers and cafe racers or just UJM style. Anyway, I think this bike is exceptionally well done and I wanted to share it here.
I especially like that he's retained the fenders, added dual discs up front, piggyback reservoir shocks and though i don't usually like them, i think i like the bar-end turn signals. Also, great selection on the tank and seat cowl. From what i can tell, the guages look very well matched as well.
I don't think i like the rear sets, and i'd go for more coned pipes, but overall it is very inspiring and very close to what i’ve begun to put together in my head.
