So this is the bike I’ve been working on for the past few months…full frame down rebuild. Still tuning it, but it was running well enough to take to the salt and try to destroy it. After selling my first XS650 to keep the bills paid I found a great deal on a ‘left on the side of my house for years’ 1978 XS650 Special. So a few months later I have another cool bike to annoy the neighbors with.
A huge thanks to my favorite Floridian, Jason Michaels of Dime City Cycles, for hanging out with us for the week while we camped in El Mirage and made the best of our time. Traded up the swamp for a dry lake.
