My name is Shane. Any info would be great about this bike and who built it, when, where etc...

Shane's number is... 0412 642 292

Prof's comment... Rear guard appears to be a late 70's Arlen Ness style 'fender'. Rake at neck was most common method through to 80's.

Shane is keen to restore the chopper to its former glory so its the chopper builder details he's keen on. But for readers' interest, combination of rear passenger peg loop, ribbed side cover, front brake calliper position and tank shape suggest to me that the bike is a 1975 xs650. Engine number would tell us for sure. See xs650 club website for xs model differences.
