Nasty. You need to get rid of that thing. Need my shipping address?

RE: jtbrothers building a xs
So do you guys use that (harbor frieght?) pipe bender for the curve bends in the frame?
Looks good! Hope you guys show us how you trim the forks!

RE: jtbrothers building a xs
Seriously that is one of the coolest xs's I've seen.. But I'd really like to know what you bent the frame up with? Did you use that pipe bender or a roller? Diggin the sharpie paint...but no axle sliders?

RE: jtbrothers building a xs
Hi guys, thanks for the good reactions. We did all bending with the bender you see on the picture. The chain roller is adjustable so the chain can be tensioned with that.

The forklegs are allready shaved (the axle is not inline but in front of the legs, don't see that much and we like it. Their from an old motorcross kinda thing i guess) but still need to be lowerd. Were gonna start on the yokes now and forkcovers ( update pics will follow)

diesel when it's ready you can give me your address :-)

Sweet looking XS! I have the same bender. Nice to see it making those curves, looks like you did it in a roller. Did you have to bend it a little then slide it over and bend it a little more and so on, or did you just put the roller pins as wide as theyll go and bend from the middle to get those curves? If you dont mind sharing that is...

a little bit of both but we welded 2 pipes together so they got the exact same curve

RE: jtbrothers building a xs
I'm liking the lines of this one better than the cb650 u guys did which was still a rad bike. Looks good
