Big Blue xs650 chopper


I started this build about 1 year ago, pulled the motor out of a ’79 rebuilt it from the cases up. Bought my frame from Dave Huntress a.k.a Tigman (does great work) running a +4 41mm front-end, Gary Poh offset kit with a 200/50-18 Metzeler out back, 21” up front.


Pamco ignition and electrics. Hoos racing 1 3/4 staright pipes. Had alot of fun with the build and hope to do a restoration next. All comments welcome good or bad. Later.

    I really like this bike it’s one of my favorites

  3. Brian says:

    Thanks guys, the tank is from either custom chrome or midwest, I can’t remeber which. Then I had Dave weld in a pop-up cap and relocate the petcock farther back.
