The Rig

rig-xs650-tcbros-5

This was a long term project (as they all are). Took me 4 years of cutting and rebuilding to get it to this point, but it’s exactly what I envisioned when I first started on it.

TC bros hardtail and Heritage special wheels were the beginning, but over the years, I modified the top half of the frame to mimic the lines of a Triumph and ease carb removal.

 

Rebuilt the motor with lots of help from the guys at Hugh’s Handbuilt (PMA, rephased, oil cooler, and lots of tech support).

 

My buddies Darryl and Cory at Lost Cause Engineering helped out with KILLER paint and a custom bent Stainless Steel sissy bar.

 
Alas, I got a year and half with her in this final set up and somebody made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. She on to a new home, but not far away so I am sure I’ll see her on the road with my next project!
