New HHB Product Release! 100% Bolt-On Oil Cooler

It's been long in the tooth, so to say, but as with ALL HHB products, we test, abuse, test, abuse some more, and test again.  It's just how we do things.  We may not release a new product as fast as we would like, but when we do, you know it's our best!

So with that said, welcome to the HHB Product Line, the Bolt-On XS650 Oil Cooler.

 *Shown Polished, currently available in Brushed Finish ONLY

This 100% Bolt-On design is designed, tested, tested again, and redesigned for the ultimate in Bolt-On oil cooler performance.
This is the largest Bolt-On Oil Cooler on the market for the XS650 Side Cover.
  • *Large Surface Area Increases Cooling Abilities
  • *120cc Oil Capacity Increas
  • *Unique 6 Fin Design
  • *Uses OEM Oil Filter – No restrictive paper elements here!
  • *Brushed Alloy Finish
  • *Includes Stainless Hardware, Gaskets and Copper Sealing Washers.
If you know Hugh’s HandBuilt, then you know we don’t offer ANYTHING to the public that we don’t fully test ourselves.  This new oil cooler is keeping with that tradition, having been 2 years in the making.
We have the largest surface area of any Bolt-On oil cooler on the market, while increasing oil capacity by 120cc’s.  More oil and more cooling surface = Cooler Running XS650 Engine!
We’ve tested various filter combinations, checking for oil pressure losses and restriction, and found the OEM style filter works best with the XS650 Oil Pump to keep flow and pressure at a maximum.
Hugh’s HandBuilt Tested and APPROVED!


Where to buy?  Why right at our store of course!  Click Click On This Link

As always, thank you for your support - we'll keep doing what we do, you keep doing what you do.

Engine Services and all that jazz...

Well folks,  it's February!  And with February normally comes the call for engine builds to come in.  But this year it just isn't happening...  We are still going full steam on engines from last year, and our focus will be on completing all of our current customer builds before taking any more engine builds in...

"Hey Hugh, I read that you aren't taking in any more engine builds, but what about Rephased Crank and Cams?  Are you taking those in at this time?"



The answer is YES!  Always taking in 277 Degree Rephase Work...  So don't hesistate, ship them on in.  Current waiting time is still about 2-3 from the time we get them in the door, so there is still plenty of time to get your hands on your own 277 Engine this season - "Some Assembly Required"

And Rebecca, our Official Shop Toddler, Says:


  "Dad!  There's something wrong with this one, it's not Rephased!"

We are really looking forward to all that 2014 has in store for us, thanks as always for your support.

21 Questions with Michael "Hugh" Owings

I can't say that I'm not proud of this one.  I've watched the Chop Cult feature some amazing builds and builders.  To be included with that bunch of folks, is truly an honor. 

21 Questions with Michael "Hugh" Owings


I'm not gonna steal the 33's thunder, but pop on over and check it out. 

And I'm not sure I'll have another update before then, so I hope all of you have a Very Merry Christmas - from the HHB family to yours.
