Peter Razza TX 650

I picked up this bike and a 1980xs in CT in August. I had sold my honda in the begining of august and wanted to get one of the bikes on the road. Standard stuff rebuilt carbs, new points,coils, and almost everything else. Wanted to get running with stock stuff before I changed anything. Might have been I waste of $$ but thats how I think. Runs great with a stock setup.

Custom made a pan and seat, spent way to much time on the tank (its from a 1980 special I think). Coker diamond tires. 400/19 front 450/18 rear. Mikes XS solid state R/R and the smallest battery the local advanced auto had. Made the plate holder from a friends scrap pile and bought the light on Ebay cause I liked it. Plus drag bars not that comfortable but they look cool as shit.

    Awsome bike. Is the frame stock besides chaning up the seat? I want to build something like this from my stock 82, where I can still have a passenger and this is the best looking set-up i’ve seen so far. Any more info?

    Thanks mike its a stock frame I think its those tires that give it that look. I looked at a lot of bikes and I think the guys at gravel crew get it right. There are a couple of sites that show you how to make fiberglass seat pans. I try to really follow the curves of the bike and not fight it,

    I do the same. Get the motor running great then create a bike around it. Looks my old VW in the background…
