Mick’s xs 650 chopper

mick xs650 1(First pic is how I bought it)

This is my xs chopper I just finished. Bought it off a mate about 6 months ago and pulled out the engine for a freshen up and fix a first gear issue and it turned into a full ground up rebuild.

 

 

Paint was done by my mate Lindsay at wizards hand custom paint (the original owner) motor was stripped down and rebuild by myself with the head sent to a local engine builder for a port job and tidy up, all new wiring harness done by another mate Nathan at Wood’s custom metal works.

 

 

Future plans for it are to make another seat and sissy bar,redo the exhaust, 18 inch sportser rear wheel and performance machine disc brake set up and a spool front hub.

 

 

That’s about it, thanks to everyone that let me use a corner of their shed while I was in between houses to work on it and massive thanks to Nath at wood’s custom metal works in Wagga for all the help and letting me clutter up your shop for the last few months.
