No, I didn't see that one while looking for mine a couple years ago - if I had, I probably would have bought it. I bought a Chinese unit designed for off-road/4x4 use, advertised for a Jeep, but with end mounts to work with the Emgo ears. I wanted both low and high beam availability like that one has and silly me, I thought I could open it up and find a division between the spot and flood sections of the LEDs to rewire it that way... unfortunately, there was a circuit board and a bunch of chips involved so no dice. Probably wouldn't have used the number plate along with this one, but it could look cool on his bike.
This is like what I bought (combo spot/flood) but mine was a single unit and far less money ($29.99 shipped) - same brand, but I can't find it anymore
Pretty cool XS650 there. At one point, about 2001 or so, I managed to pick up on 3 or 4 of the Yamaha 650s, in various state of "disrepair" & had plans of building myself a decent 650 for me to get around on. Well, things happened & before I could get into the project, I had a guy who had heard about my 650s & he made me an offer, I couldn't refuse. He was into the building the Trackers too & was going to try to start up a business of building & selling them. So, there went that.
Hey guys thanks for the input and comments,
The story on this bike is as follows...
Sad but true.
A very good friend of mine bought it 4 years ago as a fresh build. Never got to ride the bike and he sold it, The next owner displayed it in his office with no use, He took it to shop for a carb job, They did the job but it came back looking like this, Clutch cable on exhaust, Fuel lines everywhere, Wires everywhere, I remember the day my buddy bought that bike...Super sweet build. Any way after a long long ride on it, I pulled it into basement for a minor freshen up and i plan on keeping it. Contacted the builder for the build details, All looks good!!
I imagine that you will get some pretty cool miles on that one, being as it will once again, be totally "right". Enjoy. And thanks for posting this up, really something that these used to be really "Out There" and yet, I haven't seen one anywhere, in quite awhile. I think it was "XS650.com" where I used to find all kinds of photos & info on those XS650s.
