These photos and question or only loosely related. The shots are of a killer XS built by Big Moon, Japan and shown to us by the excellent Speed Junkies blog. Now here's a question from a reader about XS650s...
> Could you please spare some time to answer a couple of questions and help me out? I have checked google and I am finding a lot of conflicting information.
> I am looking interested in converting my motorcycle to get the flat tracker look. It is an xs650 of 12/78 build.
> Is it possible to put a 19inch rear wheel on this frame/swingarm, and if not what would need to be done to do this? Would it just be a matter of bolting on an earlier swingarm or is it a major project? It currently has a 16inch rear wheel with disc brake.
> Lastly, will a 19inch front wheel bolt straight on (it currently has an 18inch front).
> Thanks for your time>
Mule, are you out there? Can you help this man? GI
