Justin – Just finished this one up not to long ago. Unfortunately she has to due to relocation. Bike was completely redone inside and out, all powder-coated. lots of work, and fun.

I dished an older 70′s XS tank, filled in the filler neck new cap. Lowered the rear, the front. Shaved forks. Added some tooled leather accents. Real fun bike.

    Wao!!! Beautiful work. Well done +++
    are the grips custom made?

  2. matt September 27, 2011 at 7:30 am #

    Looks great. Sounds great. Paint and that front drum really make it in my opinion…

    Nice details…..And very nice work on dishing the tank. That’s harder than it looks to make it that smooth and crisp.

    Not normally a fan of this style but I sure like this one!

    I just picked up a 83 Heritage Special, I have been looking at other bikes for ideas. Your bike has inspired me tremendously! This will be my first project bike, and I am really looking forward to it! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Awesome Job! Love the leather work! Can you give any info/details on the rims and tire size?

  16. Martijn van Geenen September 28, 2011 at 1:28 am #

    very nice!

  17. Your daddy September 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm #

    Dude Nice!!

  18. Your daddy September 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm #

    Dude Nice!! It does need a fender tho!

  19. scott h September 28, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    it doesn’t NEED a fender. neither of my custom bikes have fenders. they need a little more cleaning but don’ have to have fenders.

  20. Usrnameunknown September 28, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    I agree, it DOES NOT NEED fenders! It looks awesome with out em!

  21. fanoboss September 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm #

    …needs fenders, 2 of ‘em.

  22. Jeff September 29, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    Where do you get wheels like that?

  23. Dennis September 29, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

    @fanoboss I emailed him thru ebay. he sure answered alot of questions while selling the bike. hoping he gets back to me. mostly I am interested in the details of putting a fat 16″ tire on the front. I really dig that look. I will be going for something like this http://www.xs650chopper.com/2010/10/softtail-bobber/ (hope this link works), and i’m just hoping to mine some experience from someone who has done it. There are a few things I’d change on this bike (for a build, not if I bought it), but overall this bike is badass.

    I think it would be ok with just a rear fender. not something big. it looks great as is, but don’t think a rear fender would hurt it.

  25. scott h October 3, 2011 at 8:44 am #

    @dennis – i put a fat tire on a cb (http://www.pipeburn.com/home/2010/7/30/1971-honda-cb450-bobber.html). if i can be of any help just let me know!

  26. fanoboss October 3, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    Good luck Dennis.

  27. earz October 3, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

    That thing is sick. Love that a tank (that’s not a Sportster tank) was used and made to look badass. I wish I had the skill to dish a tank like that. The while bike looks killer, but I think a small rear fender would help the rear end flow with the lines of the tank a little better.

  28. Justin October 3, 2011 at 4:35 pm #

    The wheels are… stock xs rear, with a 1971 front hub laced to a stock xs rear 16″ rim. You can just as easily lace a regular front hub to any 16 rim though. this 5.10×16 tire has about 1/4″ clearance on either side of the tire though, so any bigger you’ll need new trees. Call Buchanan tell them what rim and hub you have and they’ll make you the spokes you need for about $120.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Not much into cafe’s, but this one caught my attention!!

  30. Dennis October 7, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    Justin, thanks for the followup. Good details, the kinda thing i need to know. again, the bike looks great, like a pitbull with tires.

    fanoboss, appreciate that, along with yer sense of humor!

  31. Eric S. October 14, 2011 at 5:42 pm #

    Great looking machine, Justin!
    Are there larger images of it available? Love to see more

  32. Gavin November 26, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    I love this bike! So much that it inspired me to buy an xs and I’m looking to build a sister bike for this one in Australia.
    Any info on specs for wheel sizes, shockers, sourcing of parts would be much appreciated.. Thanks.
    Well done!

  34. RJ from the ole school March 27, 2012 at 9:36 pm #
