Bill Wallis's XS650 Special and Café Racer

Bill Wallis' 1982 XS650SH appears to be in excellent condition, something to be proud of Bill.

Bill just sent me a pic of his newest ride, a lovely Black Café styled XS. Obvious changes include the two into one exhaust and MikesXS café seat and special wheels on a roadster frame. Very nice Bill.

Below are the latest pics of the Café Racer which has undergone some changes, new tank and seat are the obvious ones and the battery box has been removed, I can also see one of Mikes XS new Keihin carburettor kits fitted.

XS750 Tank & made seat myself, painting style “Old School Café” Wheels are next, thinking off doing the bobber holes through the alloy spokes ,not sure yet on that one, what ya think ( I like it - Toota ). Will be getting Bridgestone spitfire types with raised white lettering as well.

Bill's latest project is an off road styled bike utilising Honda XL500 bits and pieces with the Yamaha XS650 motor.

And the finished article is spectacular.
