I'm working on this for a buddy of mine. It's a zero stretch looped frame. This is what I got done today before I ran out of Oxygen and Acetylene which I needed to bring the bottom frame rails on the stock loop in. I still have to make the axel plates for it aswell.

I should have more pics this weekend . I ended up shorting it by 2 inches . He saw a sonic weld frame for a flat tracker and really liked it.
I have never seen an XS650 with a 2" under hardtail so it should be interesting. here is a pic of the sonic weld frame.

Finally finished this 2" under xs650 frame. It came out looking less odd than I thought it would.

I don't even know how to feel about this. Hahaha. It's super cool! Such a short little frame. Makes me want to see mags on it with a little tank and some BMX style bars, pegs on the rear axle, and the smallest head light and tail light you can find. I want to build one now!

Badass! I remember that jig and those pics on the wall too. Didn't you do a KZ440 before this? Anyway, love the build so far.

Yep , Did it awhile back, I'll try and stop by the guys shop and snap some pics of what he has done to it . I only did the frame for him but I am in the process of making some aluminum split tanks for this bike also so I'll post pics of those when I get them done.
Thanks For the kudos guys!

Nice, I like short bikes!

Here's an XS650 I built that's 1.5" shorter than stock. I moved the seat post back 4". I think it improved the proportions.

My good friend Kenny Watkins (RIP) built that frame, he was Sonicweld, in his later years he worked as the race team fabricator and welder for Kawasaki racing, sadly he about 6 or 7 years ago he passed away after suffering from a couple of strokes.

It is really good to see Kenny's work, he helped me build a couple of really nice dragbike chassis.

Well Chris the owner of the bike had planed on finishing up the fab work on this but had no time being a busy shop owner him self. So he called me up and asked that I finish it . Being busy with all my leather work I called in a good friend to help me finish it up and pose for pics ,LOL .well here it is hope it's enough pics.
