Fare East inspired XS project update

Busch Brothers -  Hey guys, been a while but this XS is still under way-  Since the last post we have decided to run a DNA sringer, adapted to the XS neck by turning down the stem and converting to taper bearings.  We also made the tank instead of running the TY175 tank-  it would have been too small.

We played with a few different seats but the spring seat just looked best with the front end, and we made the shotgun exhaust also.  Danny formed the fender by hand from flat aluminum sheet and it still has a ways to go til mirror finish.

Also, got some handlebars made that need one more bend, and the risers need reworking.  Got the headliught mounted up as well.  To get her on the road we need to finish the tank and the braking system, add a kickstand some controls and gas-  that’s about it!

    Very odd looking headlight. I mean that in a good way though, very cool.

    It’s come a long way. You made a good choice on the seat. The bike is beefy.

    Love the head light. Actually I love everything but the bars.

    Thanks for the positive words, all! Sorry this girl’s been taking so long. It feels like I’ve built it ten times already, because (and Lance always laughs at me for this) when I build stuff, I end up redesigning and making things several times over. Get in a rush, turn out crap, go back, redo it right. But it’s so close now :) Will definitely keep everyone updated!

    @ Danny – the matching Firestones look SICK! I really dig how you did the rear end – the headlight is crazy.. I know what you mean about taking forever on a bike. My choppers taking about a year longer than planned. BUT, I’m building it the way I want and it should be done soon. I have build tons of parts that will never make it on the bike – just play around with different ideas some steak and some don’t.

    Thanks for sending the pictures man..
