Yamaha XS650 Dirt Bike Build

Haven't seen many of these so I thought I would post a couple of pics to see what you guys think? I know my work shop is a mess but I always end up fabricating instead of cleaning. I custom built my own frame out of chromoly. I'm trying a mono shock not sure if it will work the way its set up, feels good just sitting on it but won't know till i ride it. I just need to finish a couple things but mainly the swing arm and should be able to go for a ride. Should be a great two track/trail bike! Let me know what you think or any suggestions you might have, thanks!

They are getting hard to find because they are turning into these.

Noice you don't see too many people building their own frames in home shops that aren't choppers. Or I guess I could be wrong, I certainly haven't seen many.

Looks like an insane amount of fun. As in "they'll never find your body in the woods" kind of fun
