Mark is a Inland Empire local,he picked up this XS 650 and wanted a simple "street chopper" This bike received a hard tail with some ground clearance for good cornering capabilities,a faux oil tank to house the electrics and lithium battery,a frisco styled sporty with a crowned cap,radiused fender, swept struts,some K bars,slims fab mids (used harley clutch cable instead of sloppy,and ugly linkages)shaved fork legs,shaved lower tree,and pipes.this bike will be receiving a two to one intake with an 883 cv carb this week.THANK YOU FOR THE WORK and SUPPORTING a LOCAL AMERICAN OWNED SHOP MARK, SLIM 951 217 8814
This is a 2008 sporty I did for a guy named Chris in the san diego area.The bike received a hardtail,oil bag,batt tray with hold down,a few electrics stashes for all the B.S.,set of pipes,handle bars,sissy bar,plte and light mount,chain conversion, tabbed the tank,and mounted his led sled fender,by the way the stretch is 4 inches ...he aint a little shit, sooo we gave him some room to breath.All the steel work was laquer cleared so it wont flash rust while he shakes it down,THANK YOU FOR THE WORK CHRIS, SLIM 951 217 8814 BUY AMERICAN OR DIE!!!!!!

These are trees made here at the Fab Farm to convert that Wide glide front end to a "SKINNY GLIDE"!!! Just bolt em on your rig andslip in your 41 mm fork tubes and off you go.They come polished or raw with stainless hardware.My thinking was ,the 41mm fat legs make the tire look even more pinched between the forks when they are narrowed than running a stock 35mm narrowglide,AND wide glides are really cheap right now soooo.....Here is the answer,slims fab 951 217 8814. The trees are in stock now ready to ship.
This front end came in on a west coast chopper CFL bike from Bobby at AMERICAN SPEED CO.He wanted the front end narrowed,I figured if I am gonna narrow it,its gonna be at least 2 inches skinnier! So I Cut it apart and put it back together losing the 2 inches.He then wanted the GIANT fucking tire to fit the fender better....So I remounted his fender tighter and built him a crown style sissy to match his company logo! The tank is a narrowed up,and friscoed 1997 sporty tank with a crowned cap.This bike will be ridden to the laughlin soon,chromed and repainted.I am not always working on stuff I am nuts about, but If you can see through all the hated/trendy/fat tire/skinny tire,Bullshit.....Fabrication is fabrication,I build it and put passion into every part as if it were my own,SLIM 951 217 8814 LIVE TRUE RED,WHITE,AND BLUE!!!!

Here is some shots of luckys sporty. This bike was dangerously ground clearance challenged.I removed his super short springer and installed one of my SLIMS FAB NARROW TREES built for 41mm wide glide legs,shoved a little longer fork tubes in em and shaved the lower legs to make em clean.With the front end longer and sufficient ground clearance,then came mounting his fender strong( three places ),built a nice sissy from 5/8" solid bar mounted his plate and light on it,fabbed him a frisco style tank and crowned the cap,fabbed him a seat pan,Bent him up some clean rabbit ears,and fixed his serious chain alighnment issue (from the previous owner/builder?). since I already fabbed him the pipes he is ready to do a mild shakedown run and rip ol rusty apart for paint!!! Thanks to Lucky and all the NEVER READYS for the work!, SLIM 951 217 8814 Contact me for your set of 41mm NARROW GLIDE TREES, they are good in stock.
