Greg's XS650 in The Horse Backstreet Choppers
Our close friend, Greg, tore down and re-built his XS650 from the ground up last year. What was a hardtail XS650 with a stock motor that he took on El Diablo Run in 2008 is now a custom-built chopper teeming with one-off parts with a built Yamaha motor including big bore kit, hot cam, dual Mikunis, racing clutch, and more. This bike dyno'd at almost 80 hp! Greg took his bike up to The Horse Backstreet Choppers headquarters in Michigan and the Horse's own Jordan Zielke shot the photos for the magazine coverage and calendar. We liked Greg's bike and Jordan's photos so much that we decided to use them in some of our banner ads on ChopCult. A big thanks goes out to Jordan for the use of his photos!
