“Pure Evil” Steven(Hotrod)Beattie


Hello XS650 riders, this is Hotrod, this is my 1980 Bratstyle ride, still needs alot of work, sat idel for awhile, theres along story behind it and the bike. A friend and I started building this bike together, His name was John Greenlee II. His life was cut short Oct.10,2009.


He was hit on his 1987 Virago which we just finished building a week earlyer. He was on his way to my house when he got hit by some 21yr. old bitch talking on a cell phone, She went through a red light doing about 65-70 mph. He didn’t have a chance.



I wasn’t going to finish the build, but alot of friends of mine said I should continue the build, thats what John would want, So I took it out of mothballs and the build goes on, IN TRIBUTE TO JOHN GREENLEE II, God rest his soul. Someday his 2yr. old son Payton will own this ride.
