This XS400 I built from lelt overs, out of my stables. She's a good old trusty steed. I found the motor in the back of me's mates shed and gave her a new life in sted.

woh. man, lotta work. worth it tho for one of a kind. reminds me of that chain frame of Indian Larry. and a little bit of the bike on the 'ghostrider' movie, but yours has way more one of a kind stuff on it.
As i bolt on guy myself (Im a woodworker by trade, not a metalworker) - respect !

The run up north was hard on the old girl.
Rear fender drop off it's mount and lock up doing 130ks in front a car full of girl's.
They shit them self's.
I thank ya all should skid ya ride in the dirt so ya learn to step it out, it'll pay of.
Flat spot on the tread. Half a fender, off again.

So made a new one and f#*Ked off the spring from under me ass. Much better

Rode her down to the Retro Rockers 10th with jon61 at me side Twisted Evil Good to ride hard with Wink f'n cool time with the lads. Fitted a wider back wheel put the fender though the eng-wheel 3 nights till 3am. (payed off)
Have a look at the pic's jmac took in the meets & rides.
The rockers put on a bike show on the sunday and white trash took 1st place.
Plus it's a Memorial Trophy for a fellow RIDER/SURFER.

That's awesome Brocanass... well done on the trophy. You certainly have a unique style and that's cool in this day and age. Looked at all the pics etc of the Retro Rockers run - looked like huge fun.

By the way, I Googled Richard Parsons and found the following obituary if anyone is interested in learning more about his life and times in NZ - he was an Englishman who moved to NZ in 2004. A tragic loss.
