franken daddys first build update


This is my first bobber build. watched craiglist for a while and finally found a bike I didnt care to chop up. It start life as a 81 xs 650.



Now finally getting close to riding, some wiring, powder coating, paint on the tins and were on the road the tail sections was built by elswick cycles, pipes were built by GreatScottsXS650, a fewparts from lowbrow and most of the other part we fabbed by us.

    Wow, beautiful bike! I say that because, it pretty much has the same profile mine has with the springer, apes, tank, and whitewalls. Awesome!

    I like the right side profile a lot has that “old school look” to it with the brass kicker and white wall tires, how do you like the mid controls? Bike looks cool over all and some paint will make it that much better,

    Also just had to say it the 2nd shot is my favorite
