    sweet bike I have admired that bike for several months. Tigman does awesome frame work. You have done a great job with the flow of the bike. Top notch build

    I got my xs 650 frame off tigman. Frame is good, except my left axle adjuster fell off after 800km. He was also a dick to deal with.

    Man that is one sweet xs. Im working on my first xs650 as we speek and I love the look of yours. Can I pick your brain a little? Is that the stock front end with just a rake on it? If so how many degrees did you rake it? Also I love those old school tires are those coker’s, I cant find them anywhere.

    Thanks alot.

  8. That is one awesome bike. Very Clean looking. Are you planning to install forward controls?

    If you don’t mind me asking, how did you acheive that stance? I love the sleek very straight look to it, I’ve never liked the very tall front end, droopy seat look. Obviously you shorted the forks or raked them, but what is the stretch and ground clearance of your hardtail? because all the hardtails ive looked at to purchase (weld on) give that very angled look which im trying to stay away from.

    Rob thats a 40* neck rake with stock length forks…. Fish, sorry man….. sometime I’ve got good reason to be a dick…. Hmmmm
