Write about your XS650.: Dano built this insanely sano XS 650 for the R4YL build off. The bike started it’s new life as the shell you see here. A 78 xs650 that was owned by a friend of his family who passed away a few years ago. He rode on the back of it when he was about 11 years old, Dano says “we’ll just say 25+ years ago”.
This bike has a ton of cool tricks and is a fresh new take on what is getting to be a boring bike, no sporty tank, no flat fender, no stock front hoop with a weld on, just a different approach to building an XS that makes it rank high on the cool scale.
Stare at the photos for a minute & you’ll see lots of one off parts on there. This bike was started on May 3o & won the build off on Aug 1st….. Dano is one of the coolest guys I’ve met in a while & is a hella dirt tracker as well. Congrats Dano, job well done sir.
