links to 3,796 detailed motorcycle builds

After I found the homemade tools site (see Tools section), I saw they have a link to an encyclopedia of motorcycle builds, on BikeBuilds.net, where you can "Find organized links to 3,796 detailed motorcycle builds from around the web." http://www.bikebuilds.net/?utm_source=www.homemadetools.net&utm_...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Great that those wheel guys were able to get the machining done. It looks like they took off just enough - it appears that an outer section on the top right has not been cut. I am still thinking about how it may have happened - perhaps squeezed or whacked with the drum bolted on. This would also mea...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

A 'new' front wheel - free is good! A disc with a different offset may allow an axle-mounted bracket fit in there. What is the space between the girder legs? That wobbly brake flange face on the hub is strange. Is the sprocket face the same? - have you measured across the hub faces to determine if t...

It looks like it was a great show - I even recognized a couple of shovels! And a swap meet on the way home too - did you grab anything new? Love your riding shots!

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Good stuff, I like it. Using an older design to update something that's not as old! Instead of threading the hole in the leg, I guess the shaft could also be locked on one side by having a lock nut on the inside of the arm and a cap nut on the outside and locking them together...if the section of th...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

The shouldered bushings will be a big improvement over the straight bushing with flat bronze bushings on each side. It looks like the plan is to lock the shafts in one side of the leg (9/16" thread) by threading the holes, while the rest of the shaft is still 1/2". Then using 1/4" setscrews to lock ...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

Great job with that tank repair. You have great ideas and the skills to fabricate them so they look awesome! It's obvious you love details; I do too. That blade handle shifter is better than the 'axle nut wrench', and blows away anything you could buy. My idea for the eurethane would be to fabricate...
