Keith Munshower-4 2014

This is my 1976 Yamaha XS650. Like many others this started out as a purchase from someone with good intentions that fell horribly short. When I got the bike it did not run but worse then that the engine and frame was painted with “truck bed liner” paint. After hours of elbow grease, help and guidance from my good friend Tom Keefer this bike went from a zero to a hero.

The parts used on this bike come from a little bit of everything. A lot of one-off and converted things even a antique faucet from the kitchen sink.  Paint job is from Big Toe Paint Works.

  5. Russ says:

    Excelent lines ,really like how clean the rear mastercylinder is, would like to see the other side also.

  6. NT Pete says:

    Nice build and the Paint is excellent and the Springer front end looks awesom. Where did the Carby Bell mouths come from?

    Great looking bike, but lay off the tilt-shift-gen a tad! The color saturation is a little overboard and the focus area is wonky. I need more pics like the second one you got there. very nice.
