Through the last 6 years of making hardtails and frames for Triumph and BSA motorcycles, David Bird's reputation as a world-class fabricator has become widespread. Just finished up is this new weld-on hardtail for Yamaha xs650 motorcycles. This innovative design allows for you to leave your stock motor mounts in place, not having to cut and sleeve your vertical seat post tube and have the possibility of misaligning your frame.
No corners have been cut, these Yamaha xs650 hardtails are made of 1-1/8" diameter .120 wall DOM tubing so it matches up beautifully to your stock front frame section. The 3/8" thick axle plates feature a 3/16" doubler plate and a .800" axle slot so your stock rear wheel, axle, and axle adjusters will be a perfect fit. Beautiful TIG welds, MIG welded axle plates. The hardtail pictured is a 4" stretch, 2" drop, looped style.
This hardtail will fit all Yamaha XS650 and TX650 models built between 1974 and 1985.
You can view install instructions for these Yamaha XS650 hardtails to see how they fit up to a stock frame.

Pros - Very Very nice product
Cons - Made for later frames. Little more work to fit an early frame
I decided to use my already stripped down 1969 xs 650 frame rather than my parts bike. Turns out the instructions are for the later model frames. Still made it work with a little more fabrication. Gonna order another soon!

Pros - Best weld on hard tail on the market
Cons - None
Best hard tail I have seen. I am a licenced motorcycle and car mechanic seen a lot of shit hard tails out there.By far in my eyes is the best hardtail on the market. Welds are flawless. Showed a friend who is a licensed welder, he said he does a really nice job. That he is not charging enough for that hard tail. When I had told him how much they are. You can not go wrong with this hard tail. Total professional , and the boys a lowbrow are total professionals no hacks here.

Pros - Easy to install, great welds, way cooler then a tc hardtail
I bought this hardtail a few years ago when they first came out. I didn't know what I would be getting into since there these loopt tails were so new. I've been riding on it for two summers and I could not be happier!
