XS bobber – raceing twist to it.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a 1975 xs with 6000 original miles on the motor. I bought the bike from a guy who had already started the project. He was going for the oldschool bobber look. I like that look, but had to put a raceing twist to it. I custom built the rear fender out of a boat trailer fender.

Built the fender brackets, custom built the intake manifold added 32 MM mikuni’s. She runs like a dream.

    Thanks for the comments. Steve- my friend did the jetting at his shop. I think he just drilled the main jet out until it was the correct size. I will find out. LiL grommit- Yes I built the exhaust it is 1 7/8 od pipe. I used the stock exhaust flange. Flying Imp- yes it is an 18″ wheel. I am not sure of the brand name I will look. Fanoboss- The brake line was on the bike when I got it. It had apes on it. My friend is makeing me a new as we speak. I will post new pics when she is completed. She is about 85% done now. I have a few more things to do to her. Air filters, brake line, rear disk conversion, afew other things. Once again thanks.

    did you buy that from Shane? Skinny white guy? If so I know that bike all to well.

  13. justan says:

    Duke I dont remember the guys name. Where are you from?

  14. The Duke says:

    nc just over the line but used to live in chesapeake.

  15. justan says:

    Duke- I guess it is the bike. I bought it from a guy in chesapeake that worked for a wrecker company. I have done alot to it since I bought it. I had to rewire the whole bike, rebuilt the front forks, customized the exhaust (not shown in the pic) it is 2 into 1 now, and put heay duty clutches with stiffer springs and all the stuff you can read and see from my post. Do you still have an XS?

  16. The Duke says:

    Ya that’s him. I remember the wiring on the bike when he had…. it was horrible. I like the paint you did on the fender and tank. Mine should be wired up this weekend and ready to role her shortly.

  17. The Flying Imp says:

    I want that rear tire! I have been looking for this for a long time. Shinko makes one like this but they only list a 16 inch.
