I Decided To Join The xs650 Nation



Year: 1974

Describe Your XS650:

I have only been riding motorcycles for a few months. About a month after I started riding I saw a pic of an xs650 built by the Fong Brothers. I became obsessed with the idea of building one. This will hopefully be a good learning expirience and turn out cool.

Thanks Bryan.

Looks like a good start to me.


  1. Denis (Billy Joe Fong) says:

    I’m not sure what pic you saw, but I build most of the Fong Bros bikes, so if you have any questions, just give me a shout. I’m glad we were able to inspire someone. Most people just don’t understand our taste, so it’s nice to be appreciated.

  2. Evan says:

    The stance on this bike looks awesome! Is the the hardtail custom or pre fab. If pre fab, where from ?

  3. Bryan says:

    Thanks Billy Joe and Evan! I had the tail done by Unknown Choppers. (http://unknownchoppers.com/). I had to talk them into it, but this was the first metric chop they have ever done. They are awesome guys.

    I wish I had more pics of the Fong Bros. bike from the Horse. Thats one of the coolest bikes I have ever seen period.

  4. Denis (Billy Joe Fong) says:

    I have a bunch of pics of that bike, and I just finished building another very similar to it. I will be photographing it this weekend and posting soon after.
