Key features that give the FXS its long-and-low lines start at the front end, where the one-inch-thick triple-clamps get internally wired Split Drag handlebars bolted to them, sans risers. Hiding behind a compact headlight, the speedometer is mounted low between the bars. A 21-inch front wheel rides in the raked-out (33.5 degree) fork. Moving back, a five-gallon fuel tank is void of gauges, with just a low-profile fuel filler on the right side. The seat is just 26 inches off the tarmac. But it was the rear end that gave Kettergan, Vorndran and their teams fits; they really wanted raw, forged steel fender supports free of any kind of covers, but they quickly discovered it that caused some problems because so much of the production involved human contact (grinding, finishing) that getting consistent results was at first difficult. With a solution in hand, they powder coated the supports in Black Denim and got the look they were after—and made it repeatable. The clean, bobbed rear fender fits tightly around a tire mounted on profile-laced, black-anodized, 16-inch aluminum rim. Rear lights are fully integrated brake/signal/tail for simplicity.
