Nic McKinney – This little rocket is a riot to run. I tore the engine down, rephased it, installed a pamco ignition, and replaced the stock charging system with hughes pma. I installed tc bros weld on hard tail. Built two 21 inch wheels with stock hubs. Threw the coils and fuse par in a pair of valave covers. Fasioned up a pair of tanks. And tooled a leather seat. This bike is a fun little kit. Continue Reading →

Kevin – Here’s a ’78 XS650 cafe thing I just finished. As usual it started with an ugly, non running donor bike. I’ve never built a cafe before and I wanted to do one with a mean and dirty look, like it wants to kill something. A mix of race bike, rat, and a little chopper thrown in. First step of course was to get it running, so I cleaned and jetted the carbs for the pod filters I put on, and the open pipes.

The tank was shot so I took another off the wall. I made the tail section out of an old Harley duckbill fender and put some dual taillights underneath. It mounts to the frame in the back, and runs under the seat to mount under the rear tank mount rubber. Then I made a pan, covered it in triple density foam and tried my hand at upholstering. Not too bad for my first attempt (well actually I threw out the first cover I made). Continue Reading →
