I posted up some pics when I first started this xs……. bottom line: this scoot has an invest cost of ZERO…. took much time with the proverbial craigslist and some driving around but after many swaps this is what I came up with. The tank is my own design built in trade for a rolling xs I had….built by Bruce Reed of Evil Empire studios in the Bend Oregon area, he built this from some templates I made… also made the bars for me.
Paint in the tank is natural rust with clearcoating, and pins also done by Evil Empire.. After many yrs of riding and owning many diff bikes I had always wanted an xs chop I think this has turned out over the top cool and I know for a fact there isnt another xs like this one… ride it like is is now and next year get the single downtube done… Yet to do: finish custum taillight… machine the brass doo-dads, and fwd controls as well as footpegs. Yea its weird and strange but its my first ever build and my first tank design.
I want to say thank you to Bruce Reed for making my tank a reality.. and I want to thank Ken B for his info and “speedo” two up-front people and I am pleased to know them.
