Here’s an interesting custom based on the R65LS – I’d rather have seen the build done on a base R65 (without the sweet Hans Muth-designed fairing), but it’s not like I did any of this work.

Named “The Dude”, this chopper started as a rebuilt shovelhead with about 3k miles on it (it now has an additional 1,000).

Featured in The Horse magazine, this XS650 has been turned into a chopper with an Ardcore Choppers frame and Hugh’s Handbuilt-tweaked motor. Seeing these bikes at shows it’s one thing, but I always enjoy learning what the market thinks they’re worth…
