Grip it and rip it


Got this 79′ xs650 as a parts bike. decided to just build it, cheap and simple. I tried making as much as possible with the limited tools that I posses. Rebuilt forks w/ progressive springs, dirt bike throttle assembly, scooter front master cyclinder, custom window bars.



Tapered neck bearings, custom exhaust, R1 rear master cylinder, drilled rotors front and rear, regulator rectifier combo, custom made foot pegs & brake pivot, west eagle seat, led sled fender, all paint is rattle can.



Think it turned out okay!

    In your last photo it looks like you have a set of clip on handel bars on your bike.

  12. chuck says:

    Are those snuff or nots in the exhaust?

  13. Dennis says:

    Hey nice job! rear fender looks great, I really dig the exhaust setup. very clean look, with a few twists we don’t see often. Is that a stock front end and rake?

    also, you’re certainly a strong young man…. I would definately be straining… lol

    Looks awesome

  15. Jared Hudalla says:

    Thanks fellas… It’s a tc bros hardtail, and the bars aren’t clip on… I just flipped the stock risers upside down and then bent bar to clear the back of the trees, then bent them forward so they wouldn’t hit the tank when leaned over.

    GRIP IT AND RIP IT , is also what I say when I have a bikini wax.

  17. Jared Hudalla says:

    No jig used… just tape measure and level. Front end is stock.
