1978 Yamaha XS650

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

Wanted to build a flat track style bike ,to ride on the street.

What motivated you to start your project?

I had a heart attack 21 years ago. Sold all the dirt/race bikes . I saw a picture in Cycle World Magazine of a Street Tracker. I just had to build one.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

Removed about 50 plus pounds of unneeded weight. Modified the engine to race standards.

What are you most proud of?

The PPG paint and how the overall bike turned out.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

I have had other people ask me where they could get a bike like mine. I tell them you have to build it in the garage with your own hands.
