Customer Bike Spotlight: Scott Witherspoon's '79 Yamaha XS650
I spotted Scott's Yamaha 1979 XS650 on xs650chopper.com, liking it immediately and then noticed that it had a David Bird hardtail on it (4" stretch, 2" drop looped style). I emailed him and asked for some pics and he sent these along. An excerpt about the bike from xs650chopper.com (original article here):
"Some main features of the bike are that it has a wassell style peanut tank, handmade fender made by my dad, previously mentioned David Bird hardtail from Lowbrow Customs, narrowed Biltwell bars, electrics box made from an ebay oil tank kit, 4 ½” bates style headlight, shaved and lowered front forks, pipes made by me, PMA swap and Pamco ignition."
