it started life as a stock 83 xs650 heritage it ran ok wheni first got it but needed a bad carb rebuild now it runs strong i cut the back half of the frame installed a solo seat i think im gonna change the cover thats on it though started to mount the tank got some new bars i eventually want to hardtail it or go with a bratstyle look but idk yet im gonna lower the front end hopefully in the next few weeks ive got a lot of stuff in mind but this is what i got so far
pics are kinda shitty ill get some more soon

looks pretty good for a first attempt (wish the pic was bigger). sounds like you definatley know which way you want to go with it, also sounds like it should be pretty cool.
