Xs650 cafe tracker

cafe tracker

Steve Baugrud- This started out as a 1981 xs650 special that I picked up for $150. Complete tear down was done and engine was rebuilt. Jugs, cases, and all engine parts were vapor blasted then several parts were powder coated. Forks were lowered and rebuilt. Tracker style exhaust is a gordon Scott engineering one- off.
Tank is from a 1977 xs750 with dual pingel petcocks. Frame was de- tabbed of all extraneous extras and powder coated as well. Stock mag wheels were powder coate and have Avon tires. Clip ons are tarozzi. Seat was hand hammered out by Ian at twinline customs and bodywork was painted silver flake with HOK lime gold kandy and black Kenny Roberts style stripes. Hidden half moon LED taillight. Upholstery by new church moto, aka ginger McCabe

Thanks for looking.

    Awesome. I love this style of custom and you have executed it quite well. My only complaint is…more pics!!

    Recognized the tank at first glance. I’ve had 3 750 triples in the past. Never could get them to run to their full potential though. Cool tracker.

    Thanks for positive feedback on my bike. Also thanks to the poster above who supplied links to more pics from my dotheton post. When I submitted my bike here, I uploaded about 8 pics. Not sure why only one pic actually made it here.
