XS650: Hardtail Hard-on   Leave a comment

I’m not a big fan of hardtail’s. Give me suspension any day. Us old bastards have learnt the hard way. (Great. My wife has just chipped in. Apparently I’m just a ‘Bastard’… No dear. I’m a dirty lucky bastard!)

I followed a link to Motoshop Tonouchi back in mid 2010. To this…

Were I ever to build another Hardtail, it would look something like this. Saved a pic or two then forgot about it until finding it again this evening. Ever watched the rising or setting sun and heard it singing to you? This did the same.

Full of little details. Clean. Flowing. Design delight.
