These are a few photos of my latest build; I won't bore you with how I found that metric nut.













































The bike is striped back to bare frame and out to painter; more to follow

Looks very nice. Is that a custom swing arm? What forks and wheels did you use?

The frame is from Richard Pollack (Mule Motorcycles), the tank is a custom aluminum for a HD XR flat tracker, the forks are Yamaha R6, the wheels are from Ray Abrams (A&A Motorcycles) the engine was disassembled and the cases polished, the kickstarter was removed and several farkles from Mikes XS650 were added. The stainless exhaust system was fabricated by a friend of Richards in L.A. The rest of the custom fabrication and wiring harness was by yours truly. It's nice to have a customer that want's a motorcycle thats done correctly!

You're bike is beautiful. Great work. Will you have to remove the exhaust to change the oil?

Wow. Just, wow. I have a serious soft spot for the old XS bikes, and this thread just feeds that addiction.
