Occasionally we do collaboration work with customers to help them out with whatever projects they have in mind. This is one of those machines.
It started life as quite a run-down Yamaha XS2 (1972) and needed a full engine rebuild. After the motor was back to how it should be (along with a mildly gas-flowed head) the bike was then mocked up, mostly in bare metal by the owner (Jay Meany) to resemble his concept. The bike then had a solid shake down to make sure it worked properly and to also find out any problems before the final rebuild with paint and powder-coat was applied.
It then came back to us for the final strip down where everything was taken back to the bare frame and powder-coated. The vintage Marzocchi shocks were rebuild with new parts by 812 Suspension, and everything else was rebuilt and refitted to make it function.
It turned out to be light, nimble and a lot of fun.
