Yamaha's XS650 is a beautiful classic bike with a lovely, visceral parallel-twin engine, and a great starting point for a special custom bike.
We were asked by Tareq to "do our thing" with his XS. The main design criteria were to make it as light and pared-back as possible, with a "just been raced" attitude. So we set about the old girl with the grinder, made her a bespoke aluminium seat unit and leather pad, swapped the oem tank for a classic Yam dirt bike item (widening the tank tunnel and fitting new fuel taps and lines), a bespoke exhaust system, some rewarding engine work for a bit more 'pep', and some simple-yet-classic race paint.
You might just see (and hear) it whizzing around the cooler parts of the capital ridden by a chap with a big grin..
