Roger - This bike was a 1979 Yamaha XS650. It has been completely re-built. There was a lot of modification done to the standard fame and then everything got media blasted and powder coated high gloss black.The head stock has been fitted with tapered bearings and bronze bushings were installed in the swing arm to give it a more responsive ride. The motor is essentially stock but has been upgraded with an electronic ignition system and a high output coil as well as a pair of Mikuni round slide carbs with UNI pod air filters.

Sometime around the first of the year 1972 my dad’s ridin’ buddy Jerry’s wife come rolling into the driveway in their ’65 Suburban with Jerry , bear-huggin’ a spankin’ new ’72 xs, in the back. I was just shy of 15 years old then and I will never forget that site. Later that same year another friend of dad’s rolled up on a brand new ’72 FL… ha, I was hooked. Been doin’ HDs ever since.
