    This one isn't mine, but a good friend has been working on it for the last couple of years. I helped him out with the finishing touches and looked after the last few things to get it on the road...The engine was done by Heiden Tuning almost 20 years ago and was never run. After getting the carbs set up properly, the damn thing goes like a scalded cat. Far more powerful than a std engine. 017.jpg 021.jpg

    Drum Brakes, Spoke Wheels and "RED" on top of that!!! I see It`s surrounded by a Norton and a Triumph too. This guy has his S--T together for sure.

    I certainly hope you are not going for the British Wiring reliability! I have an MGB with the Morris blues!

    Here are some pictures of the latest xs650 build. It is called the Lucy Bike. 1980 Special with a '75 tank and custom seat upholstery to name a few things.

    You cut that rear fender a bit close didn't you? If you get caught riding in the rain, between the water and dirt you might pick up, you could pack that tight. Did you hit something with the bottom of that fender? I love the colors on it, nice job.

  15. Thanks guys. Yes it's tight, it's certainly not going to be a daily rider. It's just taped off to avoid the usual gravel rash :)

    The extra small rod brace on the curved section of frame is both functional at the weakest part of the frame and it looks good, I am afraid at 250lbs
    I would snap off the seat post, that could get pretty UUUGLY fast!

    Here are some pics from a month ago of my '78, The Brass Bonsai. I'm in the process of trying a single carb set-up now. Finally got it jetted to the point where I could ride it again and she seems quicker to respond and snappier overall. Still need to do more tuning but it's getting there. Oh, then a couple days ago on little ride I snapped a clutch cable. Grrr...
