Spring is coming...

Well with another foot of snow coming Friday it is getting hard to think that spring is here and with it comes riding your bike again. Before you jump on it for the first time this year do yourself a little favor and check the bike over. I always like to go over a few things before that first ride. Before you even start up check the tires for dry cracks and under inflation. Next up go through your lights. After this I give the brakes a squeeze and make sure the pads have plenty of meat. Next make sure you have oil in the tank and trans. And primary. After this fresh gas and a little fuel treatment and you should be off. If you ever have any questions call your local shop and schedule a check up!
Spring services starting at $45.00

Finished Doninator Frame Modification

Step 4

One everything is fit just final weld. Remember you can take measurements off of the motor mounts to the rear axle to make sure everything is square. Take you r time and it will look nice. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Part 3

Here is a picture of the Chop Shop Cycles Hardtail ready to go.
Fish mouthing the up posts to ft the hardtail.
Locating the bottom rails to the old frame.
It is always easier to grind a little at a time. Fitting the tail section with this method is not an exact science, we have found that different years of XS's are different and we can't tell you just where to cut.
This is how the bottom lays in. The slugs will go in the frame in the location the directions say, you just need to fit the up post to this section by fish mouthing it also.

Part 2

More details of the cuts.

XS Hardtail with a twist...PART 1

For this hardtail conversion we are going to leave the center section in place. You may have seen this look on the XS650 Choppper Site before. I believe the Fong Bros are known for the look we call it our dominator hardtail.
Here you can seen the rough cut made to the frame, we trim it off at the seat hoop and just behind the up post for the controls . We will cut back more as we fit the Hardtail.
In this picture and the one below you can see the brace we use to keep everything square. We are cutting out the cross brace in the frame so you need to brace it or you will have trouble aligning it later.

Another Ironhead with bad wiring

If you use a car style key switch on the older style starters you still need a relay to handle the current. The switch just doesn't hold up.
