Old school cool comes in all shapes and sizes, and Mr Luckys has teamed up with Paughco to design and produce a vintage inspired rigid frame that accepts an XS 650 Yamaha powerplant. Manufactured from 1970 thru 1982, these engines/donor bikes are abundant, cheap, and have that retro styling reminiscent of early Triumphs/BSA’s that looks oh-so cool!
Frame features a 30 degree rake, heavy-duty 1 1/2 in. steel front downtube & backbone, 1 1/8 in. side rails, all drawn over mandrel for smooth, clean bends, Mig welded for a stronger weld without all the heat, and fully welded in a secure fixture keeping the frame straight and lined up perfectly during welding.
Accessories: Order neck cups # ML139FCY if you wish to run your stock Yamaha front end, wheel and brake as we did on our “Mr Luckys” XS-650 Bobber. Or, order neck cups # ML139FCH to run HD style front ends with 1" stems as included with our springer front-end in the El Loco XS-650 Rolling Chassis kit (check the Kit out # ELROLLER). You can use your stock OEM Yamaha rear axle if utilizing the stock Yamaha OEM rear wheel. If running an HD type rear wheel, order # ML26BK axle kit and our special 34 Tooth Rear Sprocket for 530 chain that has the HD bolt pattern matching the HD wheel, # KS34TRS. (these Yamaha engines use a 530 rear drive chain, same as HD's). Frame comes with Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin (MSO) for registration when bike completed, and made exclusively for Mr Luckys by Paughco up in Carson City, NV.
