I've had my eyes on doing an XS650 build. Got a ton of pictures and reference links to things I'd like to use for design inspiration. The mechanical end of the bike is where I'm lacking. I could totally swing almost all of the fabrication with the proper equipment.

A few different people do the basic paint (Evan at Fat Boyz, Frank at Mittinos Paint & Body)
A guy named Tom Stack in Colorado Springs does all the air brush.
(the green bike up above is one of mine and I painted it with Parker Duck Boat Paint from Cabellas - rattle can.! :eek:)

Here's a couple more I built last year for customers:

Nice stuff!!

I like the simplistic looks of the green military looking bike best. A nice runabout bike, I would only change to lower bars and call it complete for me. I sold my HD long ago but it is so damn hot here in OK I wouldn't ride it anyway.

If I get another bike it will likely be a full dresser or GASP a Gold Wing. Momma says no puss pads for her, she wants to ride in comfort. I can't say as I blame her. :o

It is my favorite too. I built it a couple winters ago after doing 3 fancy pants high dollar bikes for customers.
I was sick of all the Bling so decided to just put a 'real' bike together for myself.
Originally I wasn't even going to paint it - just leave it bare metal and let it rust.
It's mostly spare parts I had laying around so I only have $4200 into it and it's cammed, high compression, ported heads,
a custom 'twist gear' tranny...
You gotta be on the ball when you hammer on it or it'll leave ya behind.

My wife told me the other day she wants me to build her next bike, time to start looking for parts I guess. ;)
