Guess you’ve already noticed, i’m in! This site is great and I’m pleased to have my own column here. This column will be updated on regular base with a lot of XS 650 info, tech solutions, stories and of course a lot of lovely XS pics.
First of all a little introduction. I’m listening to the name Hans Prost for about forty years now and living in the east part of Holland. Already twenty years I’m a huge XS 650 lover, or better, call it a passion. I’ve built and ride several XS 650’s over the years and also collect XS documentation for many years. Another passion is blues-rock music, favourite band is absolute Lynyrd Skynyrd for me. Glad to say they’ll coming to Europe this spring, lookin’ forward to them.
OK, back to the XS 650, I’m also a member of the Dutch XS 650 club. We have about 600 members, our own clubhouse, part shop and a great club magazine. Name of the mag is 653 and I’m an editor of it. I’ve got several bikes, at the moment three XS 650’s and my latest project you see in the ‘Back to BasiXS’ post.Thousands of XS pics to share with you, in this first post (as promised) some Japanese XSses on customshows. I know it’s got less to do with Holland, but hey, haven’t you seen the inauguration of Obama? We should learn from each other…. So here some Japanese custom-bikes, most are built in the Bratstyle tradition.
