Ben and Kev’s XSelent Adventure!

Kevin – Here’s our ’78 XS my friend Ben and I built for the Greasy Dozen contest last year, sponsored by Bear of Old Bike Barn. We got a bunch of free stuff from Lowbrow Customs, Biltwell, Speed Dealer Customs, TC Bros Choppers, Lowside, Wrench, Showclass magazines, and Old Bike Barn. We tried to make the bike look like a 60’s show Triumph- classy but not too over the top. We built the hardtail from scratch including curved top tubes in the seat area, using axle plates from TC Bros.

I needed an engine and wheels to use in my frame build project for school. I lives next door to XS650 specialist Jerry van der Heiden of Heiden tuning so I gave him a visit. He had an imported XS for sale without Dutch licence plates.

I did nothing to the engine or other parts, just fitted them in the new frame for display. After finishing the project it disappeared some were in the back of a barn and was forgotten. I found it again and dicide to finish it. Continue Reading →

Pete Grice – It’s taken 18 months from start to finish. Two of us started separate builds at the same time in the capital city of Australia’s Northern Territory. My build started as a 1975 650-B that was still running but in a pretty sad state. Along with the usual ignition and alternator replacements, lots of MikesXS shiny bits there are also heaps of other mods. The Fuel tank has had the base cut to accommodate the top engine mounts.

The Limey – There are many, many XS650′s on the web that various people have bobbed, chopped, bratted, cafe’d and generally modified in a myriad of ways. So, trying to make a simple brat on a relatively low budget that stands out is getting a lot harder to do. Continue Reading →

Jeff mink – This is my ’75 Standard that I built.. This was the first motorcycle that I have ever done and I am pleased with the outcome of this project… I added 3″ to the wheel base by moving the swing arm pivot.  The tank is the stock unit that I chopped down, I just couldn’t find anything that I really liked.
