Hey Otis,

I love the early naked wings.
I've ridden a couple of them. You really get a much better sense of what Honda was designing in the first place when they made it. They're big, and heavy, but all that weight is pretty much below your knees. Even with soft suspension, it still handles rather well. I don't care for any the ones with all the Craig Vetter designed stuff all over them.
Your's looks rather good too.

Congratulations on a truly unique take on your sweet XS650 ! I'm so damned tired of all the butchered bob jobs on these bikes.

Indeed, got it from the original owner with 90k, including every piece of paper work and the camper hold down kit as well. It was his hunting rig.
