You actually make a good point. If that bike was real bad lookin that fairing would be perfect on it, but it's just far too nice of a bike for that monstrosity to be hanging off the front.

I've seen some fun things done to old fairings like that, they just need to fit the application.

The windshield is cracked by the mounts, so I could see it coming off at 70mph and decapitating me. Soon as I can source a headlight and bracket, I'll pull that bad boy off there. Who wants it?

I'd also like to swap out the goofy-bend bars for something a little straighter.

You don't like that Buck Horn style bars? You need some Z bars!

It feels like I'm riding a wheelbarrow with those bars.

Z bars would just look silly on this.

Hmm...clip ons, or apes?

Gunman, it's in great condition and only has 22k miles on it. Looking forward to getting 50-60mpg instead of the 15ish from the red Dakota in that pic.

I was kidding about the Z Bars. I'd have to see it without that sweet fairing to get a better idea of the front end.

I would order a TCBros weld on hardtail for that XS650 and do it the right way Yamaha XS650 Weld On Hardtail : TC Bros. Choppers LLC , TC Bros. Choppers LLC

Otherwise nice start

Here is the what I have gotten done to my XS650 so far ( '81 TCI motor )






I am starting to take the rear swing arm and other frame parts off to prep it for a TCBros weld on hardtail ( '79 Frame w/rear disc brake )


When I get back from Fort Lee, VA ( ALC Phase 2 ) I hope to start on it once again and finish up the TCBros hardtail frame and start to rebuild the motor...

Nice project you got going keep me updated! I would have picked up that kit but everyone and their mother who has a xs650 has the same frame look wanted something a bit different.. and the joints are going to be cleaned up a lot just waiting for some nicer weather.. and believe me its done right, frame was set up on a jig and welded properly
