I would do terrible, terrible things for a free set of Friscos..xs650 noid photo 587x440

I just bought my XS650 very recently. I’ve been searching for a good starting point for close to two years now. It’s a 1980, and has just over 7000kms on it. Very clean! Ive began to dismantle and get my creative gears turning. I decided early on that I would most definitely be rocking a set of Friscos. They would really set off the look I’m shooting for. Thanks!

I’ve always loved XS650 bobbers, but always hated the geometry of the mass produced hardtails.  That is why I called Elswick Cycles and had this one custom made.  Its a 5″ stretch with a 4.25″ ride height and I think it ended up giving the bike a pretty wicked stance.  The oil/electrics can was also made by Elswick and features a hidden ignition switch under the cap.  License bracket is from Rockabilly Choppers.   Continue Reading →

The bike started life as an 81′ XS650. A farmer bought it for his hired help who then learned a valuable lesson on drinking and riding. for the next 30 years it sat in a barn under a cover. a friend of mine who hunts that land calls and says he just has seen an immaculate XS650 for $800 cash. Of course you don’t let that set around. Once to my shop, compression was checked, fresh gas was added, and BANG!! the old girl had gas in her veins and was ready to run. Continue Reading →

Brad – Traded a stalled V.W. project for a bike that had already been hacked on but it came complete and with a good title.Ive been admiring this site for a couple of years now and feel good about building my first bike. Started by calling Taylor at T.C.brothers to get their awesome hard tail,came to my body shop exactly when he said it would.This is a beautiful piece. Didn’t have ant problems welding it on.

A solo seat came with the bike but i don’t know who its from but i like it.Got a tank off some old harley from the 80’s.Found it in a guys barn and he just gave it to me,I love the shape and hope i can make it work.Plus free stuff is always good right?Also have drag bars for now.Next up on the list of things to do are plumbing the brakes,battery box,and all the millions of other little things that have to be done.Thanks to every one here for the great support and info.Peace – Brad Claussen
