TC Bros. Featured Customer Ride - Mike Marsicano

TC Bros. Customer Rides – a photo album dedicated to the fabrication ingenuity and creativity of our customers and featuring their rides they've shared with us.

 Mike Marsicano from Amsterdam, New York.

 In his own words:

 "It's a 1981 xs650 with TC Bros. hardtail kit. The motor is a ‘76 with TC Bros. pod air filters, TC Bros. 15 in black ape bars, all TC Bros. hand controls and forward  controls. The tank is 2.4 tank with old school side gas sight level, the exhaust is made from the TC Bros. custom kit. The seat is a hand-tooled leather La Rosa springer seat150 rear and 100 front Shinko tires on the stock xs spoke rims. Took me around 6 months off and on the build I bought it as a basket case and make it my own.

I was never allowed to have bikes when I was younger, my parents hated them. My friends started to get them and I was around them more. I finally got a place of my own and I could do whatever I want then (as my Dad said). I came across a stripped down xs650 (basket case) in mid-December and I bought it. I worked on it every chance I got all winter long. I hopped on it for first ride, never riding bike on a road before and never looked back - my quick test run down the road turned into a hour ride and ever since then I ride it every chance I get. I had it out a few times this past winter when the crazy upstate New York weather was nice.”
