simple 73 Chop

noid-15

Just finishing up this ’73 650.  I wanted it to be a pretty basic traditional looking chopper.  Nothing too crazy, just simple.  Whatever it needs to get down the road, nothing else.  Scratchbuilt hardtail stretched 4 inches over stock lowered maybe an inch or two.  Stock 18 back wheel with a firestone tire and 21 front from a dirtbike.  Old sportster tank with flames over the crusty paint.

Narrowed Biltwell z bars, cheap leather seat, pipes kicked up to give it a little attitude.  Rear fender and mount is the stock front fender, thought it was cool why not keep it.  So, there you go, nothing too crazy just a simple two wheel freedom machine…

    Hey, thanks a lot for the compliments. Yeah the tire is a 4.50-18. The kicker is just an old brass harley style pedal off ebay. Cut the end off the stock kicker and welded a bolt on for that pedal.The seat is an egay special too. I can’t take credit for the pictures, thanks for those chuck and thanks to russell’s speed shop in birmingham, al for their killer graffiti wall…
