This bike started out as a 1978 xs650 special with 16k miles and the build time was approximately 6 months. Dirty D hardtailed the frame using a TCBros weld-on rigid hardtail frame section that incorporates 3 inches of stretch and 5 inches of ground clearance, which gives the bike a very balanced look and stance.
Dirty D also did all of the fabrication on this bike. He trimmed some serious fat and reshaped the top motor mount. (Dirty is like a plastic surgeon for old run down bikes hahaha) He fabricated the brake pivot and linkage, rear brake support, battery box, headlight bracket, all of the mounting tabs, and fabricated one hell of a nice set of mid controls and one kick ass exhaust system. Oh enough all ready the man can fabricate anything…..
Dirty D decided that this 650 engine was just too beautiful to hide so he decided to Frisco the tank and really show off the cool looking motor that makes the Six Fiddy so unique!
As most of you probably noticed there is no fake oil bag hiding all of the electrical work. Dirty decided to do something a little different and shoot for that really clean open look, hiding all of the electrical underneath the bike, mounting the ignition and coils to the cross member.
This bike is over the top bad ass!!! The paint is just crazy and has tons of details, pictures don’t do it justice. Another outstanding paint job by Heston.
The seat came out very nice as well and was hand crafted by Troy Gibbs Custom Leather. The lower legs were shaved to give the front end a nice clean look, those were done by Vicious.
Well I hope you enjoy!!!
