“To flow with curling or rippling motion, as a shallow stream does over stones.”
One-Up Moto’s first custom is a modest take on the iconic Yamaha XS650. Hailing from 1974 and born again on its 40th anniversary. Along with the essential updates any XS650 restoration should expect, this one got some special treatments. This is the only tattooed One-Up bike to date, but hopefully not the last. Sitting on lipped aluminum rims wrapped in Dunlop Gold Seal tires this bike is ready to Purl.
