Mark- I bought it as a running bike (pic with red tank) with the wrong tank, & sidepanels held on with zip ties, it was orignally a US Custom model & rode it like that for a while, the engine sounded ok but it started smoking badly, so I took it off the road for a while for a top end rebuild & a few mods. While I had the engine apart I had it bored out to 707cc & fitted Wiseco forged pistons & did a little porting on the head & fitted new cam chain guides, everything else was in great condition so no further engine work was needed, while the engine was out I removed the starter & gear & blanked off the hole, so I can get away with a small battery which now sits under the swingarm. The electrics are in a box behind the engine. Continue Reading →

Jose Mendez – A friend and I took on a 77 project. Bike was in pieces in a barn. We picked it up for a fair price. Quickly jumped on wiring and wanted to hear it run. Once we got it running it was right to tearing it apart. We sent out a bunch of parts to powder. Mocked up bars, I cut up the fender it came with and made it work. It’s been fun, still have more work cut out but, the end is near.
We will be selling this bike soon, look out for it on eBay and Craigslist CT Continue Reading →
Pedro – 1979 XS650, found this one in a barn, only had 800 miles on it. Brought her home and took it down the frame and cut the tail section off with a 4″ grinder with cut off wheel. Ordered a TC Brothers hard tail welded that on, chopped the stock pipes and wrapped them. Did the complete bike in black. Rode her a year like that and then started buying a few nice parts and repainting the tins. Currently some of the parts on the “79 Chop” are LaRosa seat, Mikes XS exhaust, TC Bros hard tail, Harley Sportser tank, GMT micro battery, stock rear fender cut to fit. Sure I’m missing something. Thinking about selling her and moving on to the next project. I live in Oklahoma and the bike has under 2k miles on it. Oh yeah she is kick start only, the way it should be! Continue Reading →
