Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Nice, looks like the machinist did a good job centering on the tubing for boring. Interested to see the next steps! Chopper New Year!!

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Looking good. I am wondering if you can have the bend right at the tube 'sleeve; from the neck - where it changes diameter. Have your inner slug tube up into the larger OD section (same size id?) and into the bend at the join. Hope that make sense. Use same method whenconnecting the new backbone. No...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

test, to see if I can post today...Yes! I like where you are. I agree with Prof...move the bike back about 4" so the existing downtube is close to alignment with the section still attached to the neck. Will you be able to cut the tubing off the neck and weld the neck onto a new piece of downtube slu...

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Great plan and excellent execution. Your years of thinking and planning really show with this unique and awesome build! Guess you must have seen AEE's attempt at using dual shocks to build a springer; saw it in a Street Choppers magazine back in the mid '70s. I have images of the 3-page article but ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Great update. Such a good deal you got, not only a wheel for your chop but a '64 chop project for your son! It will be great to follow the build of the next one too - I wish him luck! I think this may be your front wheel(should be 18"): https://draganfly.co.uk/images/shop/triumph/650unittwin/frontwh...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

That looks great in the zero-rake position! Good to hear it meets the silly regs too. Been thinking about an option for your machine...well a couple more; one could be as I mentioned before - leave the frame neck where it is - no change in rake and still tied to the backbone as original, and just st...

Re: Honda 750 chopper in Gumtree...

Nice stance, love the Harman internal-sprung girder. Is it that bike you want or are you looking for a rigid Honda 750 chop? I see one for sale now on gumtree, in Gympie Area: https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/OTAwWDE2MDA=/z/ufYAAOSwmBhbxV-m/$_103.JPG $9,500. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-motorcycles/honda+...

Re: Improved Sporty battery setup...

Prof, in the pics above of your rear frame is the first time I noticed somethin' a little different with your axle plates...whats goin' on there...it looks like they are mounted on pivot bolts...are you hiding a swingtail in there? :lol:

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Gotta agree with you, That does look awesome! 8) I notice that you have the P&P girder in the +10 degree rake position - is this when you are over the 'Ridicule Rule'? What if you pull in the bottom to the zero rake position? That will put the front of the bike up a bit more, but will it fit the 550...

Re: Captain America revisited...

Great work Prof. This replica is definitely "an exercise"! "Challenge in this case has been to find clear shots of the right side of the original chopper." I noticed here you had to relocate the master cylinder line to clear the pipes...thinkin' that the master cylinder needs to be moved (hidden) an...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

It may be a bit late for this, but is really interesting; original instructions from P&P for their girder:
