Curt Black – When I picked up this bike it was all apart in boxes. Bits and pieces everywhere, the only thing that was done properly was the welded up TC.Bros hard tail.

Forward controls, Sporty tank, Oil bag, Rear brake set up, Wiring harness etc. etc. The only mistake I made was I sold it… Continue Reading →
Eric – This bike was built to ride fast and hard. It’s got ample ground clearance for hopping curbs, slim profile, and a rephased fire breathing beast of a motor fed by two Dellorto 36mm carbs, squished with JE high comp slugs, fired by pamco.
The brains behind it all is a street-able (kinda) Megacycles cam. Exhaust was fabbed out of 1.625″ tubing. Continue Reading →
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.

I scored a DNA 2under springer on CL AND 80 spoke 21″ on eBay ad that’s when the transformation started to happen.

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”. Continue Reading →
