I found this 73 xs650 for a good price, with some extra exhausts and an extra engine. Bike is straight 70's with the huge king/queen seat and sportster exhaust. Should i pull the trigger? And if so what direction you think i should go?

Plans to chop it? Extra exhaust and engine? Is it running? Seems like a great deal! If you have plans to chop and strip it down I would part the rest out. Pretty hard to say no I would think....

Yeah it runs, carbs recently went through, new clutch, starts on 2nd kick. Not sure about chopping it yet, I don't want to go the tcbros hardtail way, I know that for sure. I'm thinking mostly stock, rake it with a 4 over springer, some mini z's on risers, lace up a 21 or 23 to the front hub. Keeping the seat for sure! haha
