Site of the Week - XS650 Choppers
19 December 2011
The man loves his XS650 choppers…and this site pays tribute to
the indestructible engine and an abundance of cheap parts that
provide the perfect platform to build a chopper. XS650chopper.com showcases
a huge range of stylish custom built bikes (check out the Medic
Bike and the Pommie B**tard) and chopper build related content that
is very helpfully listed by category.
What this guy does not know about XS650s, it is not worth
knowing. Did you know that over 250,000 XS650s in 40 different
variations were produced by Yamaha from 1970 to 1985? With that
many variations, you could be forgiven if you are not exactly sure
which model yours is. No problem. Click on the XS650 Model Year
Identification Chart on the XS650 Library page and you can solve
your own mystery.
In fact, the XS650 Library
can help you solve a multitude of mysteries particularly those
relating to building a chopper. Listed in no particular order, the
library catalogues online resources on and off site on topics like
solutions to electrical problems, rebuilding the clutch, how to
refresh an old speedometer, charging system trouble shooting - you
can find out how to do just about anything to your XS650.
You can also tap into an online network of XS650 fanatics, swap
tips and hints and read blog posts that are updated regularly. If
you like the site, you can buy the t-shirt.
