Fndirtygreaser’s 78′ XS6FILTHY – Trouble Loves Me

Manny – Picked up the bike pretty much as a roller a few years back.  Didn’t know anything about the xs650. Had to find someone to adjust my carbs to get it going. After having things fall apart or stop working I decided to dive into the xs650 world read/research ,work on bike , repeat! I scored a DNA 2under springer on CL AND 80 spoke 21″ on eBay ad that’s when the transformation started to happen.  Every month I hit the LB moto swap meet and scored a sporty tank with a vintage patina rust. Had mason at psychoresin.com custom make me a Jesus tail light. That’s where praise the lowered came into play.   Continue Reading →

Beast of Burden 1 201410 600x372

Nick – I started this build in the bowels of my basement, basically pointed it down my storm doors and heaved.  Worked on it for about a year and got it completely torn apart, which was nice and all until I realized it took me a whole year to do the easy part.  I walked downstairs one day and realized it looked like a junk yard and knew I was in trouble.  So, I quit my job and started working on it fulltime.  A HUGE amount of props goes out to Techshop Pittsburgh that had all the tools, welders, sandblasters, powdercoat booth, lathes and on and on and on that I needed to finish the build.  Seriously tho, they have EVERYTHING check them out.  Besides mounting and balancing the tires, the rest was done by yours truly and this is the result.  My “Beast of Burden”.

Aaron – So i bought this bike from a fella in Austin TX. originally it was red. But the desire to customize it took over almost immediately. I haven’t gone too crazy though. I really wanted to just change the look enough to feel like it’s mine.

Standard restored 650C1 20146 600x398

Jacksdad – I imported this bike from Ohio 3 years ago, it had been stood for exactly 20 years, I had it running within 24 hours! Since then I’ve totally restored it, new piston rings, fitted a Hughs PMA kit, electronic ignition, a High lift cam kit from Heiden Tuning, 2″ stainless – exhaust downpipes, K&N air filters, now running ike a dream!  Just about every part has been repainted, polished or replaced with stainless steel, including rebuillt wheels with the superb standard alloy rims, just beautiful! I also have a set of 1970’s white side panniers and frame, ready for some touring as soon as I get the time….  This is my “keeper”, not planning on ever parting with it.
