Got this xs a few years back and it turned out exactly as imagined. I bought a 79 xs special. I had the frame hardtailed. Then started getting on ebay. I found a tank from a old Indian dirt bike. I gave Robby Smith, www.robbysmith.net, and Okaw Valley Customs a basic idea of what I wanted. They nailed it.
Found a old springer and was told it was a Denvers Choppers, but who knows. Anyway it was in pieces and the legs were straight but long as hell. Had all new hardware added to it. I cut down the massive rockers. Okaw Valley Customs shorten the long legs so it sat right. And added a headlight mount. Had a local shop make the sissybar and it was perfect. Robby spaced the rear wheel and mounted the fender.
Okaw Valley Customs hooked me up with a sweet brake setup. They pieced together a hand brake. I made the shifter with a Robby Smith handle. I made the seat
.My friend Travis hook me up in the wiring and the carbs, ran like a champ. I can’t think him enough for the amount of time it took him to get it running and charging. I could never had gotten to this point without Robby Smith, Okaw Valley Customs, and Travis. These guys do a great job.
I am now going to start a xs650 hardtail flattracker, I need a race bike and found one to build. So I am letting go alot of the parts that are on the Junkyard Dog, including the Springer, seat, fender/sissybar setup, and other chopper parts on eBay. Link is for the springer, but other items can be found in my other auctions link.
