Aka the TacoChaser

Write about your XS650.: I built this bike the winter of 02/03. I wasn’t even into motorcycles, but a friend was going to give a stock frame, fork and wheels to build a chop out of so we could ride motorcylces the next summer. 18 pack later I had 4in stretch, 4in dropped one off hardtail. I built it from my basic knowledge of cars and hatred of mundane. I wasn’t trying to make rat-rod, its was just easier for me to fabricate something from the scrap bin, than wait for parts I couldn’t get from the junk shop around the corner. There are NO ebay or craigslist bit in this bike.
Frame/Fork: ’79? from Josh Ewing
Engine/Misc.: ’75 from newspaper

    Just great and the pics are great for sure!!!
    What I really like is the fact you use 18 inch highshoulder rims for both wheels, with those Firestones it worked out SUPER.
