Hey Everyone, I'm brand new to Chop Cult. I just wanted to post a few pics of the GS650 I built over the last couple years. Lemme know what you think.

What I started with. Not this bike exactly. I started with a $250 barn find that "ran when parked". Took a long time to make that a reality.

Fabbed the tank... never ever will I do that again.
