    ok there's enough people here trick'n out XS's to see if anyone would want to give this a try?

    im think'n of try'n to put togehter a XS650 build off with a wrap up party(over niter camp out)
    im think'n late summer next year have a ride to make sure the bikes are no trailier queen, open to any custom XS650 chop,bob, brat, cafe . you'd post the builds here so everyone can see them and have the event pick 1st threw 3rd and have the best in show picked buy a site only vote. the party would be open to any bike but the build off bike would have to be xs650 powered. i'll try to get some cool prizes donated for the winners. if i can get this off the ground anyone want to throw your name in the hat to build? im think'n 10 to 15 builds to start cuz there will be people drop out over time.

    im start'n this now to try to get it mostly worked out b4 the end of the year so theres time to build. so anyone want to give it a try:shrug:?

    on the builds just to make it fair i'd say new build or build in the get parts around stage just no i got to put the tank on it and it's done kind of starter. and im in NW ohio but im not say'n the ride or party has to happen here. id like to see as many people make it to this as we can get. and if i have to ride a day or two to get to it i will.

    thanx livingdeadmc, im go'n to hold off on the leftovers build and do it for this. so i just realy need 8 more to get the wheels on this hotrod burn'n rubber? anyone?

  9. Is it too bold to say I'd like to make the event, wherever it is?

    surely, there'll be a longest traveler's award, yes?
  10. No problem man...it would be a blast...like I said I can throw in some of my JSC Mule Handlebars, JSC aluminum pegs, jockey shift knobs....whatever JumpStreet makes and you need its yours for prizes.

    Is this going to be open to professional XS builders as well or just DYI types? What percentage of the work has to be done yourself? Or maybe a scoring system that is based higher on the work you do yourself???

    Date is the biggest part for me. I have a hardtailed frame, that;s it and I installed the tail last year.

    im a DYI guy myself i mod or build almost everything on the bike b4 it's said and done. i think if pro guys want in im cool with it. it's just go'n to drive the DYI builders to not cut corners and bring there a+ game.

    so you in?

    need 7 more
    thanx carbon thats a good idea just need to find a place to have the party? anyone got a place around there we can use for the weekend? public camp grounds are ok but most are realy crappy with large groups of bike.

    also open to any other spots anyone has in mind?

    let see a pic? like i said just try'n to keep it on the level.

    i just realy want to see some cool custom xs's and have a reason to go camp with out play'n 20 ?'s with the wife...:laugh: i did the horse's ACO last year and had a blast same basic idea im just not letting someone win cuz of the motor they use. and also im go to build one of my foot clutch mech's and im go'n to talk to a local painter bout some stuff for prizes. so there will be cool stuff to win.

    hadn't thought of that but yeah that would be cool but if we get someone from the west coast or great white north i dont know if texas would take it...:laugh:

    im think'n late August some time, i got a frame and some wheels and a shed full of bullshit. my last build was done in all honesty 5 1/2 months of real work and so if things get move'n and we start the builds in November 10 months is more then enough time.

    after think'n alittle deals gap is cool but we got to rember to try to keep this shit fun and safe for everyone. long choppers with shit brake suck on the dragon and i'd like to keep all the parts on the bikes not in the trees if someone builds something like that.

    i know that there's some stuff some guys just cant do. alot of guys dont do motor work some can only buy frames and hardtail its a build wat you can of thing. but if you got to buy stuff it's cool just dont flip open a parts catalog from TCbro's and think you go'n to win
