Another Hardtailed XS650 Frame

This frame was never meant to be…  At least not from our hands.  This frame came to me from a good customer who has been waiting over 6 months for a weld-on hardtail section from another supplier.  Unfortunately, this feller was out his cash AND still didn’t have a frame to put together.  We don’t do alot of frame sections here at HHB, but from time to time, we’ll make it happen.

This is a great example of one of our tail sections.  A subtle mix of 1″ and 1.125″ tubing, factory lower frame rails tweaked for nicer lines, and no oddball “plug” from the backbone to the lower frame rails.

There are many differences in one of our frame sections, when compared to some of the popular tail sections on the market.  I get asked all the time “Will you offer a Weld-On Hardtail?” and the answer is constant.  I will not supply a weld on tail, but I will gladly build one for you in my JIG, ensuring proper installation, and a straight riding motorcycle.  Plus, then you can have any specs you desire and I can work my magic on the stock frame loop to make it more natural appearing rather than an “addition” to the stock frame.

This frame is 3″ stretch, with 4″ of ride height and should look great when finished.  I know this one is getting a nice rephased engine, PMA swap, and some of our Shaved, Polished and Lowered forks…  Can’t wait to see it done!

As always folks, thanks soo much for your continued support and encouragement.  I wouldn’t change what I do for anything in the world when I see happy customers getting their bikes together like this.
