2023 XS650 Calendar - Nominations

Hello
I finally finished my xs650-
Of course a build like this you are always going to tweek and make improvements.
Still have to do a tail light but you get the idea…
It is an absolute animal- carb up close and personal- exhaust wide open and and a jockey shift.

Very happy with my part time left over parts build.
I nominate this build by @epas
Crazy machine, but what a looker.
 
Perhaps a picture of @epas 's bike?
You just have to click the link 'epas said' in the quote above.
But for the IT challenged (Me included):

Wouldn't fancy taking that down Craner Curves or the Corkscrew mind!

Well, it's certainly an interesting, perhaps unique take on the XS650. Think I can safely say, would not attain an MoT in the United Kingdom.
 
Hi everyone
I'm thinking I would love a shot at a calendar entry, I reckon I might have the beastie running and photogenic in time to submit a completed pic, fingers crossed.
I bought her in 2006 as a complete but very weathered not running pile from a guy called Water Rat for a dollar a CC, stripped her and panicked so into storage she went until Covid when I needed a distraction and remembered there was something interesting buried deep in my tiny shed that might do the job.
She's my 3rd XS650 and 7th Yamy XS, something weard about XS's and me.
The paint is inspired by my wifes favorite sexy undies, the style is inspired by the dreaming of a 20's something me with the first 650.
What do you guys reckon?
