Escape Machine XS650

This YAMAHA XS650 was a very fun build. I wanted to make a simple looking Bobber that also stood out from the crowed. The fuel tank comes from a 1960’s Honda CL77 Scrambler that i modified to mount to the stock xs650 frome. The tank badges were made through a fun process of acid etching magnesium and sign paint. I incorporated a few wood componants here and there in an attempt to beautify some typically ordinary aspects. The handlebars were made from scratch, as well as the stainless steel exhaust pipes and various other parts and brackets such as the repurposed headlight mounts. The front drum brake comes from the 1971 xs650, modded to fit and refurbished. The sleak and beautifully hand made tail light was fabricated by the talented James Crowe of www.crowemetalco.com
