    Chopper Axle Plates (Hardtail Axle Plates)

    Hey everyone! I'm now selling axle plates! Get your axle plates for your chopper / hardtail project from me and help support the site. The axle plates are laser cut from 3/8" mild steel.

    The axle plates come in three styles A, B, and C.

    The fender/sissy-bar mounting tabs can be used with 5/16" bolts, drilled or tapped to 3/8" or 10mm, or cut off.

    All three styles are available in 17mm, 20mm, 3/4" and 1". XS650s have 20mm rear axles.

    Weld-on spacers plates are available to work with your original XS650 axle adjusters. The spacer plates are laser cut from 3/16" mild steel and once welded to the 3/8" axle plate will make the axle plates 9/16" wide around the axle slots.

    Style A 20mm

    Style B 20mm

    Style C 20mm

    Style A, Spacer Plate

    Style B, Spacer Plate

    Style C, Spacer Plate

    The next two pictures show a comparison of the stock XS650 axle plate (later style) and the spacer plate I'm offering.


    The price for a pair of axle plates is $29.95 plus $5.80 for priority shipping.

    If you also want spacer plates, the cost is $39.95 plus $5.80 for priority shipping.

    Shipping prices are for the United States only.

    Email me at sales@chopsource.com with any questions.
    To place an order head over to http://www.chopsource.com/axle-plates.html

    Thanks everyone!! :bike:

    Update 9/15/16:
    New lower prices. Axle plates were 37.95 a set and are now 29.95 a set. Spacer plates were 11.95 a set and are now 9.95 a set.

    I'll be ordering a few sets of these! I'd rather support this place and Travis than any other...

    PS, when you have the next batch cut, you should add a small notch for the adjuster screw to seat in...

    Sounds great! Let me know what you need.

    I thought about adding the notch but decided against it on the basis that not everyone will use the stock adjusters, and if they did, it would be easy to add a notch with a grinder/cutoff wheel. On the other hand, if there is a high demand for plates with notches, I'll make some that way.

    Send me a Paypal Invoice for the Style A w/ Spacer Plates to HughsHandBuilt@gmail.com and I'll get you paid. I need a set for the newest frame I'm building.

    I agree, cutting that notch by hand wouldn't be anything hard to do.

    If any of you guys are wondering if the Axle spacer plates that Travis makes works on a TC Bros hardtail, wonder no longer. They fit almost perfectly! Travis's slot is only 1/16 inch longer than TC's and all of that will be covered up by the adjusters anyway. Great product, great idea!
