This bike was sent to us by a fella that had no idea how much work would be involved in finishing it up. It was rough…to say the least.
This ’77 standard had the heart we all love…that phenomenal XS motor and it just needed to be brought up to spec to make it the bike it always wanted to be.
We began by laser checking the alignment on the frame and adding the needed frame gussets (that had been removed for some odd reason) Additional frame gussets were added to strengthen the overall frame member.
The concept was to get a racy street rumbler sort of feel to the bike. We hand fabricated a new tail section with removable supports so it could be removed if needed at some point in the future.
After all of the frame work was completed it all got media blasted and powder coated for long lasting & durable finish.
Paint work was done “in-house” using Matrix Systems custom colors.
The electrics have been totally minimized and hidden with through the frame wiring.
Running just the minimum did not mean we would skimp on the important stuff to make it a total road ripper.
The ignition system was upgraded to an electronic set-up to greatly enhance to power of the spark and overall reliability.
The intake was vastly improved with the addition of Mikuni VM34 round slide carbs and the exhaust has had a set of custom fabricated head pipes added.
This bike sounds MEAN!
Some of the various upgrades have included:
New Pamco electronic ignition
New Flanders chrome handle bars

A great little road ripper that certainly turns heads where ever it goes or where ever it is seen.
