Ardcore Choppers Blacked Out XS

Ok boys and girls here’s the newest XS to roll out of the Ardcore shop. The bike is on its way down to Tejas. That is Spanish for Texas. This ride was built for a guy who goes by the name of David Sweeney.

Here are some specs on this Yamaha xs650: Ardcore 180mm frame, Ardcore off set sprocket ,top fools exhaust set up and a -2 springer. The rear sports a 18 180 tire. This bike runs a boyer ignition. The IGNITION IS DESIGNED TO REPLACE YOUR OLD STYLE. The ignition system improves starts, idle and revs through the rpm range.

The guys at THOMAS RACING hooked up the engine. Thomas racing is out of Indiana and they specialize in XS650 motors and other high-performance racing products. After they’re done building the XS power plant they test run it before it leaves the shop.

The motor is 100% rebuild and has a welded crank a valid job and bead blasted heads and cases.  The motors really worked over with new clutch fibers, new cam chain, new gaskets and seals and other good stuff. Sounds like a badass engine right?

The tank and fenders have been paint with SEM Hot Rod black and the frame has been powder coated.  Nate says “The customer wanted it blacked out so that what we did..”

Is their anything else interesting that we wouldn’t notice from looking at the pics?

Nate- hmmm…The bike is running one of our offset sprocket to accommodate the wider rear wheel, also is running our chain tensioner..

Anything else you’d like to add?

Nate- Buy a gun.. _Nate

  3. shotcaller says:

    Bitchin’ bike…is “negro” politically correct?

  4. Ted says:

    @shotcaller- “negro” politically correct?- I don’t know man. I’m not the one who built or named the bike so…. I hope I’m able to get my bike to turn out sooooo clean and kickass. How is your bike coming?

  5. Carl says:

    ‘el perro negro’ is spanish for ‘the black dog’

  6. tadd442 says:

    all of the wait / load time for the vid and I don’t even get to hear it run…..at least there is a good looking woman to watch…the bike aint bad either.

  7. Irish says:

    Lovin this ride. Easily one of the cleanest, baddest and simplest chops I’ve ever seen. Those Ardcore guys really know what they’re doin! Very simple. Very cool.

  8. This bike is pretty clean. I really like the front end. I wish it had mid controls

  9. Shotcaller says:

    Every time I see a completed Ardcore bike it remotivates me on mine. Keep em comin John and Nate. Ted, Mine is almost ready to come down for paint. I’ll send you some pics soon.

  10. chris says:

    next build my tins are goin to nate, without a doubt….

  11. Nick says:

    where can I get those bars?

  12. jesus says:

    I dig the song for the vid who is it?

  13. Tech7 says:

    God I love black bikes with a redhead around it!

  14. Nate says:

    Thanks for the comments guys..
    @speedingDoug,yeah I prefer mids also but the customer wanted forwards..

    @Nick email us.

    @Jesus, The band is called ZzZ they are friends of mine from Holland. You can find them on the interwebs..

  15. Bo says:

    so rad.

  16. toe. says:

    great bike! crazy hot chick!
    just an amazing post all around!

  17. Well even with the forward controls, its still rad. Where did that springer come from?

  18. Blackwidow says:

    I like that rear wheel what is it off of?

  19. seniorsalazar says:

    The bike is amazing guys great work im sure customer is gonna be stoked. Once again gorgeous!!

  20. seniorsalazar says:

    i also would like to know what kind of bars that its running, cheers.

  21. Angry John says:

    Very awesome bike! keep up the good work Gents

  22. JonathonD says:

    Looks good, do you guys sell your offset sprockets?

  23. Rusty Nutz says:

    Nice. Put together well. I mean the girl lol.

  24. Thomas says:

    i like that style of bikes slick and basic!

  25. Sam says:

    Does anyone know approximately how much it would cost to have one of these built? Do I have to supply the donor bike?

  26. reynoldburton says:

    Nice bike – but thats not unusual for Ardcore bikes.
    Nice Erica too :)

  27. Nick says:

    not to be a pain but I sent a couple emails about the bars and no response..:(

  28. Mark says:

    Wicket littke black bike!

  29. luke says:

    pretty cool but fong bros do better.

  30. Freedombiker says:

    luke, I don’t think you really know what you’re talking about. The fong bros have good style but ardcore is doing things you wouldn’t even notice. A ardcore bike is like a completely new ride.

  31. MIKE says:

    Those bars look like the same ones i’m using on my build, BILTWELL FRISCO’S

  32. Lanzalones says:

    Nice bike. I Want to make the rear wheel on mine the same. Where did you get the wheel? What else is needed to make the back wheel the same as yours? Thanks!

  33. Americanbarber82 says:

    @Nick- These clowns won’t respond to your emails. They’re customer service is the worst I’ve ever dealt with. You’d be much better off getting bars from Front Street Cycle, paint from Blue Moon Customs and parts from Elswick Cycles. Blue Moons paint is so much better than nates. Theres no comparison.

    You wouldn’t by chance be the guy that called on Mon/Tue of last week about pipes and were told to get your order in ASAP as we had a batch we were building and waited until 7:30PM FRIDAY NIGHT to order them are ya?. You called on Sat. and we told you we would try to get them done to ship on Monday. Now your pissed we couldn’t get them done in 4 hours on Mon. to make the UPS truck and they went out on Tue. morning. Again forgetting you were told to get your order in ASAP and you waited until 7:30PM FRIDAY NIGHT. I checked your emails and everyone you sent was answered from March. As for our paint have even seen any of our paint? See boys and girls this is the kind of stuff we deal with DAILY.

  35. HEY? ?QUESTION FOR ARDCORE CHOPPERS I BOUGHT A 76′ YAMAHA XS650 THAT HAS HAD AN ADVANCED MECHANISM PUT ON IT. NOT SURE WHAT BRAND EITHER. AND STILL HAS THE 2 OLD STOCK COILS. WHAT COILS SHOULD I GET TO REPLACE. I WAS LOOKIN AT THE 2 TO 1 ONES ON MIKESXS. CAUSE ONE CYLINDER ISNT FIRING BUT HAS GOOD COMPRESSION, AND I THINK IT DIDNT HAVE ANY SPARK ON THAT SAME SIDE. CANT REMEMBER IF IT WAS FIRING WHEN I FIRST GOT IT CAUSE IT SAT FOR FOUR YEARS PRYOR TO BUYING IT. MAYBE SOME TIPS WOULD HELP THANKS. YOUR GUYS’S BIKES R ARDCORE

  36. God I love that Springer Front End!!!
    Big Huge Gigantic THANX To ARDCORE – And Mike, And TED, and TC Bros And All Others Keeping These xs650’s A FORCE TO BE RECKONNED WITH…..To Hans of Holland,- To the Fong Bros…
    And of course to All Of The Thugs busting thier Knuckles In thier Driveways, Basements and Home Workshops….

  37. ARDCORE says:

    Adam,
    Call the shop or email and we will see if we can help you out.

  38. Mark says:

    Badass bike! Is that an Ardcore springer?

    Oh and @AmericanBarber82- I emailed Ardcore about bobber frame and front end and got email back in a matter of hours, at night! douche. stay off boards like this with bullshit.

    Again badass build. front controls belong on a OCC bike tho!

  39. Ted says:

    @ Mark – Thank YOU! Any time I see some goofball posting some bullshit I would love it if someone like yourself puts them in their place.
    I don’t want this site polluted with negative crap.

  40. Matt says:

    Love the bike. Always putting out sick bikes. Nate and John at Ardcore are some stand up dudes with a great business. Great service. Good dudes. Always willing to help…

  41. Tommy Guns says:

    That bike is sweet! But, those controls need to go!!!

  42. Nate says:

    on the controls..the customer gets what the customer wants…

  43. Rusty Nutz says:

    Yup. You makes handmade shit and some customers think you pull it out of your ass or off a shelf like at WalMart. They give you shit and then they don’t buy. You make it look easy when you are really good at what you do, and the customer comes to believe that it really is easy, totally ignorant of how much work is involved in making it look easy. Well dickweeds, when you fuck up, the learning experience comes out of your pocket, and when you do good, you make an earned wage. When you get five minutes, the phone rings and it’s a dickweed. Or an anonymous dickweed volunteers nonsense in an email, or a board. A dickweed pisses you off, and you can go hurt yourself on a power tool. Try putting your own name on something and see how easy it is to sell it. Most dickweeds don’t have the stamina.

  44. chevy53 says:

    sweet bike man

  45. REEB! says:

    Erica T should model for my bike when its done. I’m only in Chicago!

  46. JesC says:

    You guys make some awesome bikes. Good job!

  47. Brian says:

    Ardcore rocks!!!

  48. Joe says:

    Ardcore, great bike! I’m building my own XS and definrtly understand that your head needs to be in the right place to be in the shop. My bike is a labor of love, doubt I’ll ever build another one, let alone build anything for anyone else. I’m way too picky!!!

  49. Gene says:

    I like everything except the bars. I have tried apes and they’re just about the most uncomfortable thing out there. And I like LONG rides!

  50. Gene says:

    PS – I’d be happy to throw a lasso over the red head though!

    And yeah, those are definitely the street of Indy!

  52. tim says:

    i like the bike , i love the red head, happily married, take the bike

  53. fanoboss says:

    I love ARDCORE….Maybe ARDCORE needs to qualify customers by makin’ sure they aren’t dealing with the whinny, I push button so I get BANANA NOW !!! MONKEY ASSES CUSTOMERS OUT THERE.. LOL. I’m not calling anyone of you that. ARDCORE PUSH LIMITS IN BUILDING AND THEY ARE TRENDSETTERS. I see them as leaders not followers. background on fanoboss: I play guitars that have been modified and also in a way that increases the value and playablity. You need true artisans for that, like ARDCORE. Magic does’t happen over nite…well, sometimes it does.

  54. Colocation says:

    Fanoboss, I agree they do create magic, and push the limits. That is a piece of art!

  55. norm younger says:

    great bike.

  56. Shane Ryans says:

    That is a tight little bike, Great video too.

  57. Piute says:

    Beautiful Red very nice high lights,seat looks great,,but stands like a blond,What Bike?

  58. fanoboss says:

    IKR Piute? what color is it ?

  59. Chuck Jones says:

    this has got to be one of my favorite bikes. So sleek.

  60. Lil'John says:

    Springer, single downtube frame, drilled disc, NO-strut rear fender, and a redhead…what’s not to like!!

    These fellow Hoosiers got class!

  61. Dean says:

    In my eyes that is the BEST built bike! It’s PERFECT in every way and nothings better than black foe a bike

  62. Jimbo says:

    Is ardcore still open for business? All of my emails go unanswered…
