Glen Raisbeck – Hi , This is my 1979 xs650 chop / bobber. Everything is done by myself, can’t imagine how many hours has gone into it. I made and welded hard-tail frame onto original front end. Rear end is about 4″ longer than stock . Other than the frame cradle ,engine, forks ,yolks and wheels everything else is either new or home made / modified.
90% of nuts + bolts are stainless. Ive polished the engine casings, wheels etc. Front mudguard brace and rear fender struts / rack is made from stainless bar and the drag pipes I made with mild steel tubing then had them chromed along with the kick start lever.
I made the top half half of the Lucky box with the bottoms of two 9kg fire extinguishers joining the two halves together then welding what looks like the battery box to the underside.
The wiring actually lives in the bottom half and the battery lives in the top bit just under the seat for easy access.
Paint is two pack gloss black applied by me as paint spraying is my profession.
I know its just another black hardtail xs650 but i hope you like.
