Silver Bullet: A Shiny Yamaha XS650 by Purpose Built Moto






Like many shops, Purpose Built Moto does a lot to put food on the table. On top of their regular custom bike builds they also fabricate exhausts, do wiring work and produce bolt-on parts. But when the right client and budget come along, the Australian crew loves to pull out the stops.
Purpose Built Moto calls these projects their ‘Signature Series,’ using each one as an opportunity to push their own boundaries. This delightful Yamaha XS650 caf racer is their latest Signature Series project. It’s a masterful combo of classic looks and modern performance, with a sprinkling of top-tier parts for good measure.

The 1973-model XS650 has some history too. It had been raced in the 70s and owned by the client’s grandfather, who regaled his grandkids with tales of how he thrashed people all over the streets of Melbourne on it. It changed hands a few times over the years?but PBM’s client thankfully managed to track it down.
He wheeled the Yamaha into PBM’s Gold Coast workshop with a loose brief. ?He wanted an object of beauty that would create a desire to ride,? explains shop boss, Tom Gilroy. ?When this motorcycle wouldn’t be on display, it would be ridden on the road and taken to the odd track day.?

Most of PBM’s Signature Series builds have had a modern edge to them, but Tom relished the opportunity to build something with a vintage bend.
?I worked at creating a timeless piece that would feel at home for any rider, young or old,? he explains. ?Something that people across a family?s generations could be enamored with.?
The build started with the suspension and wheels. The XS650 hadn’t seen a track in quite some time?but it still wore the classic Marzocchi piggyback shocks it had raced with back in the day. So PBM stripped, blasted, cleaned, rebuilt and tweaked those to perform a little more like modern units.
There’s more vintage goodness up front, with a pair of 38 mm Ceriani forks, held by custom triple clamps. The wheels were stripped, and rebuilt with 18? Borrani rims. PBM kept the original rear drum brake, but swapped the front hub for a four leading shoe Robinson drum brake.

And that’s where things got interesting. ?In the past, I’ve been left underwhelmed by the performance of cable operated drum brakes,? says Tom. ?To address this, I wanted to build a hydraulic drum setup, but keep the traditional look of the Robinson drum.?
Through some trick fabrication work, Tom made a pair of guard plates that bolt to the Ceriani forks’ disc brake caliper mounts. Then he hid the hydraulic actuators for his custom hybrid system behind them.

Next, PBM turned their attention to the motor. The XS650 was treated to a full rebuild with a 700 cc Hoos Racing kit, a ported head, upgraded cams, and nickel plating on the outside. It also now has a hydraulic clutch, thanks to a conversion that uses a Ducati GT1000 slave cylinder.
The motor inhales via a pair of Mikuni VM34 carbs ...
