Ray Tanner – I started building this bike a couple years ago and just wrapped it up. It’s a Yamaha XS650 (1980) and has a TC Bros hard tail, Wassell repop tank from Cleveland Cycle works with a custom paint job from me.
The frame is powdercoated, the seat and forward controls were hand built by myself. The engine has a Pamco ignition, and a PMA from Hugh’s Handbuilt. When I received the bike from a neighbor, she had floated and bent one of the intake valves about 10 years ago. Now, she’s a blast to ride with a lot of power and not too much weight!
