Kelley Runion – This is a little hotrod XS650 that was put together over 2 years with the help of my 3 sons and some good buddies. Not a whole lot of part numbers on this bike. Its been a labor of love and a learning experience for sure. Building a bike in your 2 car garage with limited tools isn’t easy but I can’t imagine running stock. This bike has a 23″ front wheel and an 18″ out back, both running dual sport rubber. The bars were inspired by one of my sons knucklehead friends who left his bmx bike laying in the driveway overnight and my headlights just happened to catch them just right and I knew right away that we had to make a set. Brass mids and highway (yeah right) pegs were turned on my buddies lathe (pays to have friends with cool tools who know how to use them…thanks Jason at Jumpstreet Customs for not shooting me when I broke your lathe). We made the exhaust short, loud and capped it off with brass caps. The rear section is an ArdCore Choppers dropped 2″ and stretched 4″. Scariest part of the build was cutting the frame in half and measuring 800 times before I welded it up. Continue Reading →
