jackie xs 650 1

Here is this month’s featured bike by Brogue Motorcycles. This build is sweet and we are told it’s a blast to ride. For you xs650 junkies, this build has some special goodies to wet your appetite.

 

It has a gloss black powder coated parts and the patina paint job on the 1932 Ford tire ring re-purposed as a rear fender.

 

The stainless steel battery box, fender struts and clear coated bare metal gas tank, tie in the raw but clean look of the bike.
