Smile Another Newbie

Just wanted to Say whats up, throw out a couple pictures of my bike and thank Scootertrash for telling me about the motohouston site...

1974 1000xlch sportster chop... I would list the mods but its about everything. Only thing left on the bike that came on the original bike is the lime green part of the frame, kickstand and the engine, otherwise everything else is custom. This was a bone stock bike (except for engine build and the horrible lime green paint job) when i bought it. It has about $5000 worth of engine work done (original owner claims) and i have put countless hours into it. Hope you guys like. Any thoughts or ideas anyone has to throw at me are appreciated.

chop2pe My Bike on My truck...

chopper18cu In my garage. Much different now....6inch risers, whiskey bars, headlight mounted, pipes wrapped, air cleaner....its pretty much done just a couple more weeks and i should be on the road!

chopper59pu This is when i first started chopping on it... I wanted to keep these apes on here so bad but wasnt practical with that heavy front end....

chopper27su Ill have to take some new pictures bc it is almost done and looks quite different now...

One of my Ol'Mans bikes... 2003 Yamaha star...Bought it stock brand new. Since then he has extended the tank, 1st in united states to put a 280 rear tire on this bike, air susp, Custom pipes, and well just about everything has been changed. dadsbike4ef

He plans on making it a steam roller.

Are you gonna go with true spoke wheels or with the cast spokes . I see two different kinds of rear wheels on the pics...just curious.

lots of em






Awesome scoot indeed and welcome to MotoHouston. Glad you you made it .
Your bike and your pops is looking mighty nice. I kinda like the looks of the apes as well, but the drags work well with it too.
The work looks great!
what part of town are you in?
