Been kicking around an idea for a while, so what do you think?

I’ve been involved with several XS builds with upgraded rolling stock, modern forks, wheels, big brakes with 4 piston calipers, beefy swing arms, dual and single shock chassis.

I work as a machinist and have a good racer friend that’s a dirt track racer welder/fab guy and between us we can make most anything fit...
Many people don’t have the availability of such equipment- that’s where we come in.

So my thoughts are:
Build upgraded rolling chassis that the end buyer plugs his motor, electrical system and body work into.
Bike could be finished as:
Street tracker
Cafe
Motard
Depending on buyer’s wants and personal taste.

Customer could even furnish a frame to upgrade.

The Summerbud XS bikes from England are beautiful, and not cheap - my idea is similar but because there’s some assembly required (LOL!) and the end buyer finishes to their desire cost would be waaay less.

I floated this idea over on some XS Facebook pages and got some pretty positive response, what do you folks think??

Here’s some pics of our handy work...
