a2012-noid-428

Two Wheel Mafia Custom Cycles – I bought this project off craigslist for $1,500.  I was a stock running Yamaha 1980 XS650.  Over the next 5 months of weekend, the boys (Alex, Joe, Russ George and Tom) and I disassembled, redesigned, rebuilt and fabricated her into this clean white retro beauty. We just entered her in the Washington DC International Motorcycle Show this past weeked, where she placed 3rd the the Retro Mod class.

    Should have kept the wire wheels! A bit harder to clean but well worth it….

    Opinions are all over the place on this bike. I like what you did with the factory mags personally. Well done on the build!

  7. Ben says:

    Other than the sissybar, (witch looks like a liable suit waiting to happen) it’s pretty much a buy parts and bolt them together bike. Doesn’t do anything for me.

  8. PlugHead says:

    Looks Killer! Ride the piss out of it.

  9. Stephanie says:

    “Two Wheeled Mafia” Really? Reeaally?

  10. Adam says:

    Nice bike, what seat is that from drag specialties?

  11. CruzBoos says:

    What is it with a white bike that makes me want to grease it up and make it slippery.
    A little too “hard” for my ass and back but I still want to get a taste of what she can offer.
