So, This is the Miyabi, hopefully you all like her.

My brother and his crew built the bike for me. He owns a small garage called Flying Piston Garage, located in Bandung, Indonesia. The garage builts bikes and hot roads. I bought the bike about a year ago and started building it right after it.

Did some metal works for head lamp and front end covers. Rear and front wheels are both 21 inch. Seats will be leather covered soon. The Engine is totally overhauled.

We went riding with the bike the last couple of weeks; No complain at all, handling and power are perfect.

The process took about 4-5 months since their also have some customer bike to be built. All the body works and the frame were fabricated in the garage. The gas tank originally from DT model and we modified (enlarged) it so it fit the frame. Head lamp mask, front end cover, rear vender and pipe were also done in the garage.

The engine was rebuilt by one of the garage crew. Front and rear wheels size are 21 inch. The handling is wonderfull and the power is great since I know since I rode it among a bigger engine size bike and I stil rode it convertably. Thanks to my brother and his crew (Flying Piston Garage), my Miyabi (XS 650), has completely done, only the paint but I’m still wondering if I am going to leave it just like this.
Thank you for your appreciation. Best regards,
Andi S. Soedjono

    Excellent build! I like that most of the bike was built by you guys instead of bolt on parts!

    Yessss!!

    That´s some really nice scoot. I like what you did to the forks/headlight, 21 in the back is really cool also. And, by the way, really nice taillight.

    Please, if you should paint it (what´s not neccessary i.m.o.) dont get too flashy 😉

  15. ryang says:

  16. Andi says:

    @Fanoboss: You mean the fornt suspension cover and the head lamp mask?
    @Ryang: around 10 cm so it’s about 4 inch.

  17. ryang says:

    well dude it’s a beautifully dirty bike… awesome

  18. fanoboss says:

    @Andi, yes the front forks and headlight would be a great seller here in the US. It’s very similar to Harley cruiser bikes.

  19. Nice. Man, I’m tellin’ ya. You guys have got to do a feature on Indonesia cuz those dudes are killin’ it! Love the headlight cowl and the single down tube frame. Killin’ it.

  27. mike lytle says:

    this is what the xs movement, if i may call it that, is all about!!! get some steel and a hammer and start beating, look what you end up with, raw beauty! i really like this bike, mostly because it is raw, untattered with store bought crap, stuff just bought and bolted on. i know lots of thought went into each and every piece. sweat and time, hard work, reppin the 6fitty the right way, perfect build thanks for sharing
