I prefer the gold colour but the green is good. Over the years these bikes have been popular among those who like to think they can "Improve" a bike. I can understand this when the bikes were about 10 years old. They were cheap and plentiful. But like all machinery time takes its toll and the original ones become far and few between.
I found this on ebay today. The blonk who built it took what he claims was a mint condition XS650 and "Improved" it by turning it into this.
He must be stuffed in the head, beside being unbelievably ugly is also utterly impractical. If it was mint condition it was probably worth in the $5000 to $7000 bracket. That lump of shit that he has turned it into wouldn't be worth $500. I wonder what the hell went through his head when he conceived the project. He must have smoked dope, speedballed and got drunk all at the same time. Then he must have stayed stoned long enough to do the damage he did and then he must have doubled all the drugs and advertised it for sale. He expects someone to part with $9000 for it. Talk about off your face. The only value left in the abortion would be a few parts and the the engine, if that.
I just don't understand.
