Pidgin Cycles XS1


João Afonso – Hello XS650 Lovers!! My name is João and i’m from Portugal, a small country but with big things…. This is my first XS built. Its a 1971 XS 1F. The bike was done at Estrondo Choppers, a great friend of mine, best known for Titan.


The ideia of this bike, was getting a simple bike, but fun to ride. All in this bike were handmade, and i mean the frame, rear fender,  gas tank, fake oil tank, bars, exhausts, battery box, foot levers…. The engine is stock, but some parts were rebuild.


The Paint was done by Dave Designs Badajoz, a very talented artist from Spain. The bike runs good and its really cool to ride it.


Sorry about my poor English – Thanks  Xs650Chopper.
