i built it, so cost wasnt much, i pulled it out of a wreckeryard not running with a bent frame. all i have in it is parts and materials. and alot of time, its been through a lot of differrent looks before i found one i liked, but come winter its going under the knife again, im going to hardtail and shorten the forks somemore and shave them too

I've recently left the Honda scene and I'm super interested in this style of motorcycles. I just don't know where to start. How expensive is this hobby

^ i just sold my project for $1400. My goal was to build it under $3000, which was doable. Tc brothers has a hardtail weld rear section and most of the parts you need for the build. Most of the xs650's I seen run from $700 to $1400. google xs650 bobber there is all kinds of bobber builds out there.

as for future plans a gotta get this 19 inch nightster wheel on might order a 2 inch tank lift kit and put real short risers on the bars...i am also looking around for a bobbed fender i can just have painted.. i have one here at work but for what ever reason nightster fenders have a bike hole right under the seat so it wont work for me. once i get the fender bobbed im gunna get side mount tag and solid struts so when the girl want to ride i can just swap them out.
im looking to buy myself a 883 for my 21st preff black but let me know what u can find for around? 1500ish?
