A narrated walk-around of the Royal XS650, then I fire it up and take a few rips up and down the road. Shot for eBay listing, this coming Sunday, 4/10/11.
XS Rear Sets -
I’m working on fabricating my own rear sets for my current project the Hybrid Racer. Screw these guys and their $250 sets (pictured below) that still require a bunch of modification and minimal fabrication. I’ll build my own and then I’ll write a How-To fab. Looks like it shouldn’t cost more than $50 bucks!
The Redline 650 - Rear Sets linkage progress
I’ve got all of the hardware either in my possession or on it’s way. All of the brackets have been built and when all of the parts come in, it’ll take about a day to finish.
Overall, these sets will cost about $50. When it’s all complete I’ll post a tutorial on how to build them yourself!
