Awesome build. I have the same, 82 xj650rj. What rear shocks did you use? And how hard was it to rebuild the front forks, and where did you source parts from for the rebuild
Donatas Tamkevicius (9 days ago)
hi, it was hard to rebuild front forks because someone before did not install spacers to push out seal, so it was some tough job ;) some parts from ebay, some from www.bikeparts.lt

Hey nice build man! Curious what front forks you have there? Are they from an xj 750? I want to throw disk brakes on the front of my project and I'm trying to find an easy front set to install

These bikes are already rare without chopping it and ruining it... Plenty of more common bike you could butcher for this

Bikes were built to be ridden and have fun on and mod, it's cool to restore them and I really like seeing that but it's not ruining a bike by any means to change it.

I'm thinking about bobbing a xj650t

Dustin Walters its not rare. yamaha xj 650 seca turbo is rare and I never do project on similar rare bike :) if it will be rare after many years I can restore everything very easy... I have all stock parts. P.s. Sometimes you make or do things not for the profit or money... someday you will understand that :) peace

great job! I want to buy the 1985 xj750 model to start my proyect, would you recommend it?
Donatas Tamkevicius (9 months ago)
Sebastian Linares hello, I can say that you can make project from all of the bikes, but it depends how big is your imagination and how much money you want to spend ;) when I started project I wanted to have minimum 50kw of power. This stock model is cheap and has 53kw and also its easy to make beautifull project without huge investments... this was 2 years ago. This baby has turbo charger right now ;)
