1978 XS650 Custom Bobber

Just finished in time for Christmas!!  I spared no expense on this beauty......she runs and rides as good as she looks!!

Frame - Professionally done hardtail and fabrication by Ardcore Choppers.  It is a 4 inch strech with approximately 1 1/2" drop seat.  Everything is beautifully TIG welded and all unnecesary tabs were removed. We even smoothed out the factory welds to finish it. Custom made brake stay with dual heim joints. Painted gloss black by Savage Auto Refinishing.

Motor - Matching #'s 1978 XS650 just freshened up by Indy Extreme Offroad.  New rings, seals, gaskets, and chrome/polished stainless hardware.  The head and jug were soda blasted while apart to prep for paint.  Motor is painted with High Temp Engine Enamel and the fins have been polished back silver.  New Pamco electronic ignition with high output dual coil, NGK plug wires, and Iridium Sparkplugs. All the fuel lines are transparent yellow lines.  New polished and smooth stator cover on the left and 3 hole shovelhead derby cover on right side crankcase cover.  Clutch pack was disassembled, inspected, and cleaned.

Paint - We decided on a classy old school candy lace.  It is a beautiful gloss black, micro flaked silver, candy purple lace, with candy red over the top.  It looks like glass and people love the rose lace.  It was painted by Jeff Savage @ Savage Auto Refinishing.

Pipes - "one-off" custom made pipes by Jon Ard @ Ardcore Choppers.  They are designed to run high down the right side with turnouts.  We designed these to stay inside the downtubes of the frame.  They have been Cermachromed by Prokote Indy.

Kick Starter - Brass kicker pedal.

Carbs - Mukini BS38's - Carbs were sent to Old Skool Carbs in South Carolina for an ultrasonic cleaning and complete rebuild.  Steel Dragon provided the polished aluminum velocity stacks. 

Frontend - 4 under DNA Springer with flipped rockers.  Bates style headlight, handle bars were fabricated and welded to the top clamp to keep things clean.  New throttle housing, clutch lever, cables, and vintage looking white "coke bottle" grips.

Wheels and Tires - Front: 21" Harley 40 spoke wheel.  Rear: Stock 16" 36 spoke wheel.  Both wheels have been powdercoated black and have new matching Avon Venom white wall tires.

Fuel Tank - Cole Foster Bobber Style tank by Salinas Bros.  Tank was sealed prior to painting.

Petcock - Panic Cycles 22mm Billet Smooth

Oil Tank - 5" Pill Style with removeable lid.  It has an awesome looking fake sight glass on the right side with real oil and polished brass fittings.  I used the feed and return oil lines to hide all the wiring.  The tank houses a new voltage regulator/rectifier combo, new fuse block, and a new 8 cell a123 battery.

Seat - Custom handtooled leather "Capone" seat by Misfit Skinny Kustoms.  Builtwell seat hinge and 2" chrome springs.

Mid Controls - Based off Mulligan Machine mids with vintage style spoon footpegs.  Brake pivot is a Hugh's Handbuilt.

Fender - 6" Smooth

Kickstand - Lead Sled weld-on with internal spring

Tailight/License Plate Mount - axle mounted, bullet style light

Chain/Tensioner - New 530 O-Ring chain and Monster Craftsman clamp-on "skate wheel" tentioner

Front Motor Mount - Delt Fabrication

Polishing - All aluminum polished by Sure Shine Polishing in Decatur, IL.
