work in progress


This bike started with a freee motor from ol’ heck, another xs650 owner. made the frame made to my specs from dave huntress, single loop with a 6 over stretch.  stock front end, shaved and powdercoated.  wheels are 23 up front ith stock hub and rear is an 18, both have powdercoated hubs and wheels with stainless spokes.


my favorite part of the bike is the electrical box/oil bag, custom made and built in for that skinny look. all the fab work is done by carl bozsik.   almost ready for paint and powdercoat.

    I’m interested in the 23″ front wheel if you’ve still got it? Email me at if it’s still available.

    Best of luck w/the rest of the build.

    If I were to ever get the 23″ wheel… What would I use for spokes between the 500’s rim and the 650’s hub?

    super nice work

  11. Dave T says:

    lookin great man! really like the exhaust, any info on size and where you got the elbows to make it?

  12. bmd88 says:

    That bike is Gonna be sweet! So I was thinkin about using a 23″ xl500 rim with a stock hub on my bike. Would the rim lace up ok ? The xl500 wheel doesn’t have even inner spoke circles like the xs650 hub?

  13. Thomas says:

    i like those bars thier great for ridin the solid yellow or dashd white in traffic

  14. bernard says:

    The Dave Huntress frame looks great,the single loop makes the engine look bigger and the extra frame lenght would be great for taller riders like me.I’m thinkin’ that this will be a sweet ride when finished,awesome!
