    People might be excused for not spotting Arvis' beautiful XS - he has been quietly working away on it in Lithuania and there is a postings gap of six years in the build thread. Makes it a stealth build? But must be a contender.

    Bjorn's bike has been hidden in plain sight in a 500 carb thread.

    IMO both worthy bikes.

    I notice there a few of you regular guys that haven't nominated............If you don't know of any bike go through the "Lets see the XS" sticky at the top of the garage page. a lot of gems in there that weren't posted as a build thread. Make sure you send a PM to the member or they may not know they have been nominated



    This is why i suggested it be kept as a sticky in the garage, to try to keep it where people can see it when they are where most of the action is

    I too am very flattered to have my bike nominated, and of course most humbly accept. In such exalted company it's a compliment indeed.
    Thanks -

  12. This is my 1979 XS650 Special II adapted for handicapped use. I have installed a Pingel electric shifter (with push button handlebar controls) where the left foot peg should be, and a highway bar for my left foot (since I can't bend my left leg). California license plate is HDCP 650 (Handicapped 650); the toolbag holds a folding cane (the handle is visible). Supertrapp exhaust; red oil reservoir for engine vent. Ducati hydraulic clutch conversion; two-pod front brake with vented disc; flat track handlebars, new black gas tank without badges from Mike's XS. Custom speedometer and cylinder head temperature gauge; shorty shocks, recovered seat with one inch high-density foam, Magura grips; LED turn signals and headlight.

    @Boopduke, Now the owner has to accept the nomination.....


    Apologize.......corrected...........

    Posting pics without any words tells us nothing. ( if you had self nominated a said so it would have coverd the calendar regulations), That's why i asked for some clarification.........Checked your old posts and media and couldn't find any reference to the bike......So again, why i asked.............i remember it being posted before..........well done
