Gettin’ Lucky!

Kent – Started back in late 2010 with a 1980 donor bike.  Got that bike running, and tore it down.  Frame is from Paughco/Mr. Lucky’s.  Reused stock front and rear wheels, discs, calipers, forks, and triple tree.  Rear fender is courtesy of 7 Metal West.  Tank was a freebie from a buddy.  I think it was a stretched tank for a Softail.  Took 4″ out of the front and 5″ out of the back and re-tunneled.  Bars are from Craig at Front Street Cycle.  Threw together a different electrics box.  I just wasn’t thrilled with the old TC Bros tube.  Seat is a Biltwell covered by Hard Luck Designs.

Here are some pics of my ‘79 XS650 Special. Found the bike 2.5 yrs ago on craigslist with 7700 miles on it, I picked it up for pretty cheap as something different from my 2 sportbikes. The original plan was to turn it into a hardtail bobber. It had sat in his garage for years and the previous owner couldn’t get it started. I trailered it home, clean the carbs, replaced the battery, set the valves and points and it fired right up and ran like a champ. Replaced the tires and put some dirtbike bars on it and rode it/did research on it for the rest of that summer. Over last summer and into this one I’ve repainted it twice, ending up with the current paint scheme as my favorite so far. I am a bodyshop manager so paint is what a do, hence changing it up now and then. Continue Reading →
