    Default XS 650 chopper questions

    I found this for sale pretty close to where i live at a okey price. However, i dont want to put big $$ in rebuilding the frame, then i would rather buy a new frame.... so..
    What do you think of the shape? Is it a usuable frame?
    If im to build something out of it i want a narrow bike with tall sissy, frisco gastank, rabbits maybe?, narrow as possible frontend (but still some "s over).

    Anyone have pics of bikes with similar frame?

    It is hard to tell from that photo. Details of the welds and what type of tubing was it made from? Make sure it is straight and the sprokets will line up.

    I was thinking mostly of the shape on the frame

    Havent seen it myself yet, but will try to make it this weekend.
    Frame is made by a proffesional, and also have a certificate (i know the company, and they make very good shit).

    Personally I don't like the prepare for blastoff look. I think the xs looks best with stock forks dropped 2-4 inches depending on the fatty tire you throw on. Ideally a 4 19.

    I'd rock the 21 up front and lower that front end at least 3 inches for the traditional mustached 70s look. Just my opinion.

    Sort of into the mag on back spoke up front thing though
