Offered for sale is a hand built drop seat custom, we had one design criteria when we built it and that was it had to be low, way low.  We started with a stock front loop and changed out the steering head to accomodate the new triple clamps and front end along with slightly modifying  (extending) the rake, then we built the tail section around a pair of drop center rims 15″ in the rear and 16″ in the front, built the forward controls, 1″ handlebars and customized the fat bob style tank with a flush mount filler cap.

New xs650chopper T-shirts in – ready to ship!

The shirt is a tribute to the XS650 engine. I had GM, a badass designer do a multicolored illustration of the xs650 power plant. It’s a work of art, its kind of 70s psychedelic inspired with tons of detail. The idea was to have the background swirling representing being hypnotized by the sound of the XS motor. I think it turned out really nice. I hope you guys dig it.

This T-shirt is –5.5 oz 100% Cotton Tubular Jersey, Double-needle bottom hem and sleeves, and preshrunk to minimize shrinkage. We have M-L-XL- and some XXL this time too…

Feeling a little empty inside with nothing to work on right now.

Scott – I purchased the bike summer of 2010. It wasn’t running but after a good cleaning of the carbs it fired up and ran great. I was lucky because the original bike was complete and everything functioned which allowed me to have it safety inspected and registered prior to chopping it. With the highway traffic act here in Canada, I would have never been able to get it safetied and on the road in its current condition. Continue Reading →
