Old Skool XS Chop Shop Style




Describe Your XS650:
I run a small bike shop in Jefferson South Dakota.  I will chop almost anything.  Hence the name The Chop Shop.  Here is a good example of one of our traditional Chops.  This bike was built for a customer who also built my web site.  This baby realy does have a few realy trick pieces.  Check out the faux oil tank which is actually the air box with a servicable filter.  The fuel tank was also highly modified, though subtle.  It is still a cool piece, with a raised tunnel, flush mounts, moved filler, and a custom machined filler cap.

The Green Bastard From Parts Unknown

XS 650 Bobber: ChiTown XS.V




Describe Your XS650:

Bobbed and Chopped this XS650 to what you see now. 2to1 exhaust, no muffler of course. Rebuilt the engine to stock standards, clip on bars, solo seat and white walls do the trick. Rides fast and furious, sounds great… way fun to ride.. Even more than my Duc! I have just been inspired by that Dutch bobber on the site so we’ll see where it goes this summer. Thanks, from Chicago, IL USA.

Thanks for the pics Jordan.

Describe Your XS650:
This was the first try of the rebuild of my xs650 1978. I like the bike because the steering is very good.The wheelbase is 4 inch longer so it look like the bike is lower. The wheels are two the same 16inch, rvs over spoked conti classics tire. The pipes coming from my Duc
Thats all !!
Greetings from Holland

Here Is One That Just Came To Be: Longgggg xs650



Year : 1980

Look out Netherlands! You got some crazy long bike competition. Look at those horns/spikes on the front down tubes. That is one super long grinder. Cool ride. Right?


Describe Your XS650:
It all started when I received this xs650. I had a first long bike. The motor in that bike went south. I extended the frame way up to Continue Reading →
