New pics in the Spring.”

Ardcore keeps sending in mind-blowing cool 650 chopps.. Lot of cool stuff going down on this ride. The clear coated metal finish gives it a real unique appearance.. El Pepito XS650 lines and geometry remind me of Russell Mitchells exiles style, very clean raw metal. Notice the offset gear to run the 180 phatty rearwheel. The rear tail light has a real art deco kind of vintage thing going on.. I dig it.. The rear tail light reminds me of the running board lights on a old sailboat.. Can’t wait to see some more pics of this ride in the spring..

Thanks Travis.

    I must give credit where credit is due and say that my wife Courtney laid the gold leaf and hand cut the lettering in a Roth style and I handled the striping..
