Jeremy has been mocking up both of his tanks on the Bullitt XS. While we almost always would prefer raw tanks, it's hard to argue that the super clean maroon tank does look pretty slick. They both work, and they both totally change the look and feel of the bike.
What do you think; maroon (above) or raw (below)?
Since we last checked in, the most notable update to the Bullitt XS is her gaining an extra 100cc, jumping from a 750 to an 850. You'll notice we lost the blacked out motor (long story), but bigger is just about always better, right? The new custom seat has been finished and looks even better in person.
The bike is getting much closer to a finished state. Keep checking back; we'll have more info soon!
Making headway on the XS. Frame is done, engine is wire-brushed and cleared, shocks are blacked out.
The Bullitt XS is being built by my good buddy Jeremy Moultrup. He's created his own blog, Iron and Hide where you can follow his build inspiration with a specific page to his bike as well.
This is the raw leather to be used on the new custom seat.
