Certain modifications have been done to the frame to accommodate the intended changes and then it all got media blasted and powder coated satin black for a long lasting durable finish.
The motor top end has been re-built with new pistons & rings and all new gaskets and seals.
A Mikuni VM34 round slide carb has been used specifically jetted for the XS650 and coupled to a Wise Guys 2 into 1 intake and a UNI free flow air filter.
The exhaust is a custom made scrambler style set-up with internal baffles. (they appear to be straight pipes but they do in fact have mufflers installed) A hand crafted stainless steel heat shield was installed to help protect the left leg.
The instrumentation is handled via an Acewell MD052 digital information center with a digital read out for both the speedo and tach along with the vital info like blinkers, neutral light and so forth.

The tank we used on this bike is an original Shell Thuett tank designed in the early 70's for use on the Yamaha 650 flat track bikes. It has dual petcocks. The seat set-up is from Hot Wing Glass. The paint work was done in-house using custom Matrix Systems colors and many layers of top coat for a deep finish.
The wheels are custom made 19" front and rear with aluminum rims and stainless steel spokes and utilizing a custom made wheel conversion kit. Both wheels are wearing Shinko 260 series rubber.
