I popped into Crowe Custom Metal/Hufnagel Cycles today to talk to James Crowe about custom levers/perches/throttle tube for my XS 650.
Both of those guys are crazy talented and have some rad shop space with just about every tool and machine someone could ask for in custom metal work. The levers I’d like to pick up from James are CAD designed and CNC’d out of solid steel. And damn, they are clean. Very cool stuff.
I’m getting another membership this month at ADX to continue to work on my XS project. I have a weld crack on the fender (due to the insane vibrations from the thumping twin cylinder motor), and I want to figure out how to build a remote front master cylinder for the disc brake. Never ending project…
High concept bike, from the leaf-sprung front suspension and front fork, to the smoke stack-esque carb and pod filter mount, to the rad drive system mounted rear disc brake setup. Some solid building skills here.
