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, straight style.
This hardtail will fit all Yamaha XS650 and TX650 models built between 1974 and 1985.
You can view install instructions below for these Yamaha XS650 hardtails to see how they fit up to a stock frame.
Not only are these the highest quality xs650 hardtails available, they are made to your specs with your choice of stretch and drop to give your bobber or chopper the exact look you want.
These are available in 0" (stock), 2", 4", and 6" stretch. You can also choose 0", 1", 2", 3" or 4" of drop.
