I recently sent in picks of my chopper and mentioned the fact that i fell in love with the xs650 motor after building this bike.This bike was put together for less than $650. I just used spare parts that i had laying around the shop.It sports a rebuilt motor, Sportster tank and softtail rear fender.
I recycled some of the tubes i cut off of my 650 and made some struts to mount the rear fender. Seat,risers bars speedo mount were made by me. The mufflers are from the J.C. Whitney catalog. I recently picked up a 1973 650 from a friend of mine and will begin building myself another bike.
This time a rigid bobber with an Elswick tank TC Bros pipe kit,80’s xs650 rear alloy mag wheel and a 21 inch Harley front wheel.I’m going to hardtail it by welding the swingarm with some hidden gussets and then removing all the unneeded bars and then mounting a solo drop seat to the downtube behind the motor. I will be sending in progress pics soon. Thanks Nor m Younger
