Bike Spotlight: Scott's 1979 Yamaha XS650

I spotted Scott's 1979 Yamaha XS650 chopper on a forum, liking it immediately and then noticed that it had a David Bird hardtail on it (4" stretch, 2" drop looped style). I tend to see a lot more custom Triumphs and Harley-Davidson Sportsters and wanted to know more about his XS650 build. I emailed him and asked for some photos and he sent these along for our enjoyment!
