Been around bikes all my life, this $600 craigslist special was my introduction to bike building. I live close to Garage Company Customs and had seen what those guys were doing with them so I decided on the XS. Those guys helped me out a TON and are a great bunch of guys.


I Totally rebuilt the motor and did a rewire with a new Pamco unit. Made the pegs, shifter knob and kicker out of stainless. Broke the wheels down and machined the cast marks out of the front hub, powder coated the wheels and relaced them, the frame also got powder.


I just got the stainless exhaust done (also Garage Co) and it sounds SICK, much deeper than the stock head pipes. Still want to get some pin stripping done to break up the House of Kolor Sherwood green paint but I’m pretty happy with it. Already on the look out fr another bike to build.
