1979 Yamaha XS650

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

“King”Kenny Roberts tribute bike.
I have a soft spot for the “street tracker” style.
I tried to emulate the style without cutting it up to much.

What motivated you to start your project?

Found the carcass on Facebook marketplace,she just spoke to me. I couldn’t let her die a miserable death behind the previous owners garage.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

I think the overall style of the bike is what i got lucky with.

What are you most proud of?

The whole package! I was able to do this “build” in a total of 31 days,27 were final assembly everything is powdercoated,only the tank and side covers are painted

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

Just returned from Daytona bike week, every where we went was “thumbs up” !
