A little more rake and stretch than stock.
I was browsing ebay looking for a few spare parts and was blown away when I spotted this sick XS. It belongs to Willie out of IA. I asked him to send in some pictures and give us some words on his ride.
Willie – This bike has been my daily ride for almost 2 years now. Started with a stock frame and a 1972 engine that I built from 3 motors. I cut the frame with no mercy leaving only the engine mounts and a partial backbone. I bentup up a goosneck that looked right with a little more rake and stretch than stock. I uses a 1″ harley type neck that allowed me to run the lowered and shaved mid 70’s narrowglide. 21 mini brake wheel for ultimate stopping power….. on an incline. The rear section is only a few inches longer than stock and handles well. XS 18″ rear wheel Everything was molded after final welding. The tank is an old G.M.E. The fender is a ribbed ford style. Frame paint is single stage PPG.
The tins are H.O.K. Tangerine with some maroon stripes. Narrow z bars with offset risers, and other custom stuff. Old Aris headlight. This bike recently carried me from Miami to Iowa on a 3 day trip with its original engine.
