So I've been wanting to do this for years and I have finally started. I love two stroke street bikes Mach 3's, RD''s you name it. So I bought a titled two stroke enduro from Craigslist.

I started stripping it down and eliminating everything not needed to run.

I bought some street tires and had some leftover parts. I also bought some clubman bars which is not in the pic.

I'm going to lower it a bit and de-tab the frame. Just a bike to put into town on for a quick errand. I'll post progress pics.

Peet, Jonah, and I rode dirt bikes to Carpenter coal mine in the north GJ desert.

Not much left if the town except for some nicely stacked rocks. 1890-1925.

The 650 did decent on the trails. A little heavy on the tight techy stuff, but tons of fun to rip around bowls. \:D/

^^^Some high pipes are in order. :-k I always wanted to swap some modern dirt bike suspension on to an XS650. Would be an awesome adventure cruiser.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!
