MIKE'S GARAGE

XS650 Chopper Project Here's some more shots of stuff around the garage. This page features a Yamaha XS650 chopper project that has taken far too long to finish.

The painted frame you see here has been sand blasted and was due for powder coating the same yellow. First I had to rake back the neck a bit to lower the frame so it would be parallel to the deck. As it is now, when the front wheel is mounted, the bike sits up to high 70s style. I want it low.

Hope your chopper project is going faster than mine. I started this XS-650 chop project five years ago and for one reason or other the work keeps getting moved back. The refurbishment of my main ride the XS-1100 Special though has been front burner. If I'm not back on the road this summer my biker withdrawal will be pretty bad. Safe Ride and always check your blind spot, twice. Bro Mike
