This bike began life as a 1975 Yamaha XS 650. Then the work began. This bike was completely dismantled & every single part was scrutinized for wear. Those parts which showed excessive wear were replaced. The sound pieces were re-built & retained. All parts on the bike are either hand fabricated one-of-a-kind pieces, new after market or re-built original pieces. Frame modifications were performed & everything was bead blasted & then high gloss black twin stage powder coating was done at American Powder Coating in Auburn. The engine had only 5K on the clock & runs very strong so it has been left essentially stock with the exception of the addition of Mikuni VM 34 round slide carbs & custom hand fabricated adapters. Free flowing chrome exhaust headers & reverse megaphones have been added as well. With these upgrades an increase of over ten horse power from stock has been achieved. High heat epoxy coating applied to the engine. Powder coated side cases. This bike sounds SWEET with a nice distinctive growl. This bike roars down the road like a bat outa hell. Additional parts upgrades include: • A PAMCO electronic ignition system…no points…no problems. • A THUNDER-VOLT high output coil with silicone wires. • Black Chrome Handle bars. • High pressure Brake reservoir w/braided stainless steel lines. • A rare 1971 XS-1 tank. • 1972 AKRONT aluminum rims…18”Rear…19”Front. Powder coated gloss black. • Progressive shocks. • High intensity head light. • L.E.D. tail light. • HotWing Glass XR 750 seat pan & saddle. • New Tires • All new cables. The list of add-ons & custom work is nearly endless.
