 1980 Yamaha XS650 completely custom built at Wiseguys Choppers and Customs.   Existing miles were just over 11k.   engine has compression of 150+ both cylinders with low miles so we didn't rebuild the top end.   Core bike was well taken care of when I picked it up.   I personally rode this bike for a season before tearing down to start this custom build.   A lot of love in the form of hundreds of man hours were spent on this build.   I personally wish I could keep this one as I have put many of my own design ideas into this creation.   This is a remanufactured bike as it has all been completely redone except for internal engine work.   Here are the stats.

Frame work: backbone with neck stretched 4 inches reinforced. and goosenecked.   rake remains stock at 30 degrees.   rear of frame has been cut away and new geometry and bracing in place for new suspension.   The notation of (JW) refers to built in house by Joe Wiseguy

Intake and exhaust is finished in polished ceramic chrome coating.

Motor case covers. valve covers. clutch side cover alternator side covers. front fork lowers. billet risers. wheels. are all polished in house.   (JW)

Motor detailing.   after the motor was degreased it was plastic media bead blasted.   3 coats of duplicolor high heat with ceramic were applied and two coats of the same manu with clear high heat.    I cut the cylinder head fins back to match the cylinder fins to make it look more European.   The fins were then notch cut after black paint and then sealed with clear.   I have done this detailing on all of the bikes I have built over the years and the beauty lasts for lots of years.  

I have put off finishing this build for 3 years now because I simply did not want to part with it.   however I do have to sell it so I can build more.   I also have this bike listed locally so I reserve the right to cancel this sale at any time.   I have a reserve on this bike that I believe is far too low so I am sure someone will be getting a bargain with this bike.   I will not accept credit card or paypal for payment.   Cash only so appropriate measures will have to be taken if out of state and cashiers check is needed to final payment on this sale.   Cashiers checks require 10 business days to transfer into my account.   so if paying with cashiers check the buyer must allow 10 business days after I receive payment before taking possession of the bike and titlework.   you can call or text me at any time with questions directly 425-870-9377 or email thru ebay is great too.   I know I have missed more items to list with this bike but to finalize this is a one off build and don't think there is another like it on this planet.   enjoy.
