  3. Doug Tucker says:

    i have a top ten list to, top ten bike builders id like to have a beer with. hans you in the top 5 man. so if your ever in bethel vermont, look me up. beers are on me. oh ya how about some info on those zodiac frames, are they dutch made, or just old school? keeping in touch with the dutch, and keeping atleast one tire down.

  4. Jacob says:

    I really like the black bobber with the white seat and spoke rims. Any idea whose work that is?

  5. Hans from Holland says:

    I do, it’s a Doc’s Chops bike. Try google and you will find some bikes including this. Or send me a mail and I send you more piXS.

  6. Jonathon D says:

    whoa that last bike is awesome do you have anymore shots from different angles?

  7. Jonathon D says:

    Quite impressed with all the bikes with suspension, before seeing all of the ones on your site i was convinced that a hard tail was the only way to go, nice work!! maybe my next bike will follow suit and be a soft tail, great bikes!

  8. Hans from Holland says:

    Yes, got some more piXS of that last one. Great set up with the 19 inch rearwheel, dropseatframe and clip-ons. Send me a mail Jonathon
    at hansxs650@planet.nl and you get some more of this one. XSee you.

  9. Ted says:

    I’m obsessed with the brat style to. My bike still has suspension on it and I’m constantly tempted to hack it off and turn it into a hard tail. I think I just buy another bike to hard tail instead.

  10. Mike says:

    Nice picks, I see you like the stock rake. I modeled my Red Bobber off of that black bike with the white seat from Docs Chops. I love that open clean look. I did my best to achieve that, yet I didn’t go battery-less and I have all lighting and gauges.

  11. Jacob says:

    Hans, who did that rigid bike below the Chop Doc one? That’s the seventh bike down?

    Thansk again and great stuff!!

  12. Hans from Holland says:

    That XS is built by a guy called Scott Great. This bike had several paintjobs by the way, think this is the latest. First time I saw this bike was a year ago on the site of 650 Garage.

  13. Jacob says:

    Thank you Ted and Hans.

  14. Hans from Holland says:

    For all the dutchies here, the second bike from Tjebbe is for sale at this moment ! Take a look at Marktplaats, the dutch graiglist.

  15. dsynis says:

  18. HANS!!!!!!!…….
    I was so heart sick over the Motorcycle Industry and the Car Industry…
    Such Tird-Knocker Punks Calling themselves “Designers” and “Engineers”…- Stealing everything they did, with no CLUE as to what was even worth STEALING….- thier only contribution being headlight and tail light lenses that cost 300 dollars instead of 3……
    – Knowing that my 1966 Volkswagon could blow the doors off a “RetroStyled” Camero didnt make me feel better…- It made me feel WORSE…- Because of the FOOLS the PUBLIC had been so easily Taken For…
    But my worst heartache was in trying to face the fact that I would HAVE NO CHIOCE but to buy a Plastic-sided Copy-Cat Outter-Space Nerd Motorcycle…- because That Is All There Is AVAILABLE….
    The DAMN FRUSTRATION…- was that I had a Motorcycle that I LOVED…- The problem was…- It was THIRTY YEARS OLD!!!…- And the Other Problem was…- There Wasnt a Damn Thing WRONG WITH IT….- But common sense telling me that you cant keep riding a Motorcycle for FOURTY YEARS…- FOR FREE…Even If It IS STILL RUNNING LIKE NEW…(????????????)
    So my only choice was to buy a CopyCat Plastic Robot-Bike…- Or Else a Harley-Davidson…I mean- at least the Harley’s were Beautiful…But They knew they had a Monopoly…and I was looking at 17.000 bucks for the one I wanted…
    ………. I was Depressed…- and I didnt know WHAT I was gonna do…
    And Then I got on the Internet…- and I typed in 1979 Yamaha 650…
    And Here was a picture of This Big Beautiful Crazy Dutchman…- Giving me this BIG GIANT THUMBS-UP…!!!!!!! LMFAO…..- And Here were THESE TEN BEAUTIFUL CHOPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!….REAL MOTORCYCLES…- BUILT MOTORCYCLES!!!!!!!!!………
    Your Photograph Is SO PERFECT…- Lmao….- It was like I had been Lost Behind Enemy Lines for SO LONG….-
    As Far as I am concerned…- HANS OF HOLLAND is like the Helicopter Pilot that pulled me out of the Ocean when I was Lost at Sea…
    AND THEN OF COURSE TED!!!!!!!!….- The Guy Who Put Together This WEBSITE……
    ……-Now I read that Ted still has shocks on his bike, and doesnt know if he wants to hardtail it…- Well Ted – You could do what I did , After I found YOUR WEBSITE…-After I found This Endless Supply Of Sources And Information, And Answers To Every Question…- and Super Fkkkin COOL MOTORCYCLES……- I got on Ebay and ordered Seven Frames, Four Motors, Twelve Wheels, and a couple of Gastanks….-Now all I need is my xs650choppers.com T-Shirt…- And I am set for a pretty good while….(Gonna Order mine 2nite…- I am finding out what size my gf wears….- would “DD” be a large or an Extra-Large?….)

  19. Hans,
    Ik kwam tijdens mijn speurtocht op het internet een XS650 boardtracker tegen van Metal Head Fabrication. Ze hebben een orgineel frame omgebouwd. In de handel zijn wel van die weld on a frames voor bobbers, maar weet jij toevallig ook of er weld on frames zijn zoals die van die boardtracker?

    Alvast bedankt.

    Gr Alex

    Je bedoeld de boardtracker van Nick Stringer. Over deze fiets heb ik pas nog een uitgebreid artikel gemaakt in de 653, het Ned. klubblad boordevol alles over de XS 650!
    Maar om op je vraag terug te komen; nee, voor boartrackers zijn niet specifieke frames/ of weld-on secties te koop. Maar vergis je ook niet in het frame van de tracker van Nick, enkel het balhoofd is hergebruikt. Let maar ns op alle gebogen/ ronde vormen aan het frame. Maar met een origineel frame met bijv. 3 inch strech in hardtail achterkant valt best een gave boartracker te bouwen!
    Lange, lage tank en korte voorvork icm grote 21 inch wielen en je komt al akelig dichtbij!!! SuXSes.

  21. Hans from Holland says:

    Alex, klikte net door en kwam op site van je band terecht. Scrolde ff door jullie playlist heen en geloof het of niet maar had net een halfuurtje de cd True Lies opstaan….toeval bestaat niet???? Eén van m’n favo gitaristen…vooral Blue on Black is mooi nummer!

  22. KWS is zeer goed, we spelen ook zijn Oh well versie , die is vet.

  23. Hans from Holland says:

    Klinkt goed, maarre….de Red Devils waren toch wel het allervetst.
    Wat kon die Lester Butler harmonica spelen…….

  24. Jorge says:

    I do agree with the gravel crew beauties they are top tens but, I dont agree with the green Xs, the Tjebbe (don’t like sissy bars) and the last one. and I think you have omitted “Soul delivery”, “Rat shop” both from G&L choppers and “El Vagabundo segundo” they are great examples of fine craftmanship.
