View Full Version : Ironhead for xs650

Thinkin about trading mine for a xs
Just because they're alittle bit more reliable and easier to chop
Due to my lack of resources.

Would I be getting the shit end of the stick here? Or should I go for it?

Appreciate the feed back gents

Chopped or stock?

So you like to go slow ? That is polar opposite of what most guys do. If you city cruise your ok but long rides your going to piss everyone off.

I have had a few cool SX go in and out but it takes the right environment to be able to keep up with your buddies if you ride together.

Honestly? I sold my XS and bought a sporty. Like everybody said -- the difference in speed is ridiculous. Those motors are screaming at 65mph.

Around town nothing crazy

I traded my chopped 79 ironhead for an XS and have never been happier... So much do that I'm building another xs right now....there's always going to be a faster bike blah blah...I've traveled many a highway on my 650 keeping up with traffic, friends etc... Never an issue.

Mine definitely runs strong but it currently a roller waiting for the Ardcore tail to come in the mail.

I would trade my xs for an Ironhead, and mine is almost completely done for ya ;)

Deals like that don't happen around here.
