    cool color

  2. Andrew says:

    I think it would look alot better, and possibly a different headlight a bates maybe, i would like to see it a burnt orange with silver stencils.

    thats a beatiful chopper bro.

    if it were up to me i would just go with a color change
    but even then the color looks nice already.

    *beautiful

    Jae, i agree with xsBuM. that is a very nice looking bike. but it’s yours and it should be what you want or are able to build. personalizing you ride is what it’s all about!!

    id leave it alone.

    if it were mine i’d change the tank into a harley sportbob tank or a sportster tank, mount it as horizontal as possible( don’t know if it’s an easy job or not) and I’d put on another headlight, i’d leave the color, i like it. wish you succes Jae!

    Nice bike, i love it. The only bobber i’ve seen with a coffin tank and it fits. LEAVE IT ALONE, DON’T #@$& WITH IT.

    Dude, please hit me up if your gonna get rid of that tank. I got a sketchy king and queen seat build that needs a coffin tank to go with it.

    I really like the look of this bike as well… but I think the coffin tank needs that King Queen seat… :0)

    Ted, I agree with you mate. The more curvey Triumph tank would balance the look of the bike better. There are a few bikes on XS650CHOPPER with the Triumph tanks….

    Tanks aren’t that hard to mount. Once you have the tank and you fiddle around with it a bit, everything usually falls into place. Try and use the existing mounts on the tank if you can.

    Man I’d leave the drum brake on the back… Looks stylin, very retro.

    Nice ride mate…

    GEEZ MATE, DON’T LIMIT YOUR BIKE TO ONE LOOK! I’VE GOT A WHOLE WARDROBE FOR MINE. MULTIPLE TANKS, REAR GUARDS, BARS, PIPES …ETC. ITS LIKE OWNING THREE OR MORE BIKES WITH ONE REGO.

  12. fanoboss says:

    My only quirk is the curved fender support and jarring sharpness of the frame.

  13. 77metricbobber says:

    If your looking for a peanut tank I have an old frisco tank I was going to use but used a 98 sportster tank instead, I would be willing to trade for the coffin tank that thing is sick

  14. Shane says:

    I really like the color, and another commenter said make it interchangeable. That would be a cool thing to do I think.

  15. reynoldburton says:

    Why changing to rear disk? It won´t improve anything – if it´s for looks only, then go for it.

  16. fanoboss says:

    Rear disc looks very modern…

  17. Barney says:

    I think i should buy this bike from this dude.
