    Default Thread of The Day: SevenSix Fabrication: xs650 build. 5 week deadline!!

    Here we go again guys, xs650 commissioned build. I agreed to have it done mid December, There is a cool story about who its for and who's paying for the build which i will tell you guys once the owner has it.

    check us out on instagram for daily updates: SevenSixFabrication

    Heres where I've gotten in the first two weeks:

    The plan



    Chopped




    3/8" axle plates cut on my torchmate, Check out IG for the video of these being cut.



    first side mock up




    Solid 1" slugs at each joint. Root and cover pass.



    And we had a roller in 2 days flat!



    The hardtail was designed as a weld-on kit available to everyone



    Spent a day cleaning and grinding the factory welds to cover them up with some pretty weaves



    fit like a glove



    And here we are today.

    UPDATE:

    Been a busy two weeks doing a little things, and one major change. The customer asked if it could be a two seater. Now I hate the way hardtails loook with a 2-up seat. So I was faced with the challenge of making a good looking 2 seater. I decided to go for a modular design, so the most of the time it will be a solo seat but when the lady wants to go for a ride a 2nd seat can be slipped on and attached using no tools. (all the pictures below are of just the solo seat)

    Not the tank ill be using still waiting on the actual one to be delivered.

    chain tensioners, spacers, caliper mounts etc...






    Pewww pewww



    Supervisor Lucy


    Curved mid Moto pegs to flow with the frame lines.



    Now this is where it gets interesting....



    The second seat "sockets" into the backbone of the front seat.



    And where she sits today, Its like Bobber+cafe with a hint of dirt bike. Should be a real fun shredder.

    Looks cool, but painful to ride. Did you consider maybe suggesting a monoshock instead of the hard mounted seat?

    The lines of the hardtail are great.
    Do you plan on reworking a bit the axle plates, or they'll stay as is?

    There Will be quite a bit of padding on the seat, it should be like riding a hardtail with 2" solo seat springs.

    Yes I will be doing something to them, I just don't know what yet. It was a mistake that I didn't catch until one side was fully welded.

    I didn't realize until I saw the page and re-read this thread that the tail would be for sale. I'm actually trying to decide which one to order in the next few weeks. Would this one be available for some slight modifications, mainly for a seat crossmember? I know I could do it myself but I don't really have access to machining tools to make a nice copped crossbar.

    It actually does come with a seat crossmember (temporary tacked so you can move it). Also ANYTHING on my website is available for modifications. Everything I do is made to order so just let me know at the time of ordering what you want.

    Nice development (folding process) on that sheet for the bracket. If you haven't I suggest submitting your blog for the blog dump.

    Well after staring at this and at the David Bird looped tail all day at work I have finally convinced myself. I was looking for something a bit different and this fits the bill nicely and should look pretty cool with a cobra seat. I'm not quite sure what you are running for a stretch and drop, can I place the order or would the price change a bit based on that? Also I wonder if there is enough room to cut anything into the dropouts like a couple of bolts?

    Sweet, give me a minute to update the website. I rushed to put it up and never got around to adding the options.

    Just purchased the 3" stretch with the fender strut mounts. This is what happens when I get held over at work, I buy shit w/o telling my wife. Let me know if you have the room on those dropouts to do some cutouts, if so I can shoot you some more cash.
