Eric Waterfall Interviews Tono of MOTOSHOP TONOUCHI.

After posting Numa’s xs-half-fairing, Eric shot me an e-mail to say that he speaks Japanese and would be willing to help out with some translating. He was able to get in contact with Tono of MOTOSHOP TONOUCHI to get the scoop on this sick XS650 CHOPPER.  If you guys dig this one I think Eric may be doing another Guest post soon.

Eric Waterfall – We have material!  I called Tono the other day to see if anything was going on and he was quite apologetic.  He totally spaced sending me the info and pics.  I got this this morning.  Though there isnt much info in the email, over the phone he said there is an XS650 “mania” going on in Japan right now.

Everybody wants and is buying up the XS.  As for used XS’, they go anywhere from 3 to 5 thousand dollars. Thats right, $3K to $5K AMERICAN!  Good ol’ Japan. The carbs on the bike are 34mm flatsides.  The fork covers were bought on eBay from Bates Vintage.  Thats really the only info he gave me on the bike.  He’s since built his own XS650 and its SICK.
