I’d really rather have a job.” The social worker behind the counter says, ” Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful Continue Reading →

Changing from standard XS650, into Bobber XS650. Pipes, paint, handle bars, new rear end. Next up powder coating the rims BLACK! Then hardtailing the BIKE!

Submission #2, and I do believe this one is a bit of a head turner. It was actually one of the bikes featured in Hanz’s Top Ten list. The builder and I have exchanged words before about it, and I couldn’t resist digging for more info on the bike. He was more than willing to dish out what info I needed along with a good story of how it started to take shape. Enjoy….

The bike was hidden in the barn, and had not been used for several years. Continue Reading →

Describe Your XS650: Year: 1980

I knew the look I wanted and I went for it. I cut the frame and added a hardtail kit that was 4″ of stretch. I made the Continue Reading →
