Danny’s Yamaha XS650 cafe racer

Danny Q is a friend of ours who has been working on a total rebuild of a Yamaha XS 650 cafe racer build.  This thing is going to be sweet, and we mean…SWEET!  Stripped down, rebuilt, polished, tabs cut, parts modded, other parts fabricated, this thing is going to be one sexy beast.  We can’t wait to see how it all turns out…

Just a hint of it's former self...

Starting from a complete tear down, Danny decided that the bike would be stripped and cleaned, and then the mods would begin.

Up on the bench...

This Yami will be completely repainted, with custom colors and a powdercoat job for the frame and misc parts…

Starting the cosmetic customization...

Polishing the aluminum seems to come naturally to Danny, and it shows on this side cover…

Working toward a mirror finish...

Keep your eyes peeled for updates, this build is getting good!

    1. That’s for checking in Tyler. Danny’s XS650 is a 1975. I believe this designates it the B model. Are you working on an XS650?
