Naters – Hey fellas, Wanted to share a couple pictures of my XS I built with the help of a few friends in Portland Oregon! I Bought the bike from a guy off craigslist for 800 bucks!…The bike had a burnt valve but would still start up and run, guess it was a tough sumbitch! With the help of Don Paulson we installed a Hardtail and from there I had something to work with! I went ahead and rebuilt the top end, added a set of Gordon Scott curved drags, new set of Mikunis and a coat of paint!
At first I was trying to get by on the cheap so I bought the Sportster tank for forty bucks, the battery box is a ballast from an old grow light, (not mine of course), and the fender stays was from a ground score from the Oregon Country Fair! The seat was made by a high school friend who did a killer job at his first attempt on making a leather seat! The bike turned out just the way I had envisioned it and wouldnt of been possible without the help of a few friends, many long hours and many beers!!!
