Hello norton(kel),
that's about what I asked for. Just to give ThirdBestFriend an idea of the best-looking desert sled. With lights, it would look more complete to me, but except from that, it's exactly what I asked for. So he's got a blue-print for his project.
Thanks a lot, kind regards, Bambi

I got a 2000 Kawasaki W650 that ive had as a Cafe Racer for years. Im about to start the conversion to Street Scrambler/Desert sled. This is what ive always wanted to do with it, Its just been too fun as a Cafe.
I can always beat the paramedics to my crashes by at least 10 minutes !!!

XS650s are great bikes for this purpose, but they're not as cheap nor common as they used to be, either. I recommend an old Honda twin, like a CB450 or CB500T. Still cheap and common, and parts are readily available.
