  5. Barney says:

    Now that’s friggin’ cool but, what about the Yamaha logo? LOL. I can’t wait to see this bike in some light. Some kind of alien predator thing. How did you get the LED in the fuel sight? Gonna have to cough up some info on this one. NICE!

  7. KsDtoday says:

    This thing is cool, love the harley wheels, dont like the headlight thing or the lights. But I would still roll it.!

  8. Colocation says:

    Ultimate! Like KsDtoday said I not so sure about the headlights all in all. Nice Job

  10. Fabbastard says:

    Awesome build guys, very original almost looks alive. Those rims are the kats a$$ too, what kinda tires you got on it?

  11. Joel says:

    Dude, this thing is sick like the flu! I don’t care what the other guys say, your head lights are killer! Very creative, and that’s what this thing is about, right?

  12. tadd442 says:

  13. Big John says:

    very nice work. badass clutch cover and led in the sight tube

  14. junglebiker says:

    Hey where can I find some still shots of this thing? It looks really good. I want to know more about the clutch cover and the LED’s in there–is it a dry clutch conversion with a window over it?

  15. fanoboss says:

    I am predicting this bike to have one of the highest number of comments very soon.

  16. El Gaucho says:

    I’ll second that, fanoboss. This thing is so out of the box! I can’t help but be inspired by it.

  17. Jorge says:

    Amazing!, pretty cooooool. I think we (the readers) want more pictures, it is different, good job.

  18. Ted says:

    @ junglebiker – “Hey where can I find some still shots of this thing? ” Some high-rise pictures would be great..

    If anybody knows how to get a hold of the builder of the XS please ask him to send in a post on this bike – it be great to do a feature on it

  19. Piute says:

    You sure put A LOT of time in this,Tin work looks good in the dark,Tires look ready to tear up some blacktop.

  20. Justin says:

    Hey, thats my bike! damn the web travels fast. Thanks for the comments fellas!
    @jungle, Its still a wet clutch, LEDs are UV, and i added UV dye to the oil to make it glow.

  21. fanoboss says:

    @ Justin, did you see Ted’s comment?

  22. lil gromit says:

    love the clutch set up, does that die in the oil last long? cos that would look mad on a night cruise, please more info on it

  23. Ted says:

    Find out how fast the bike has to go before the flux capacitor kicks in? Here’s a complete article with tons more pictures on the sick ride.


    Thanks Justin!

  24. Mike says:

    Hey I have to tell you the clutch cover blew me away. Can you post some build info on that one? I am working on an aircleaner/intake box that has a turbocharger type intake opening for looks. I was going to light it but this would be a super compliment to the intake lights. Thanks in advance. Really shows out of the box thinking. Looking forward to your reply. Michael
