Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

I so like coming back to this page to look at the fine chop you are building. I'm just wondering if you have any updates with photos to share...even just a few more photos of what you've done...I like it. thought this may be a fun look at: A Definitive Guide to Girder Forks! https://www.custom-chopp...

Re: 2021 Balhannah Swapmeet

I would say it was overall a great adventure. You got to find out you multimeter was broken, got to meet some other vintage cyclists, who went to get you their meter for testing, found out there are still good people who will stop to help a broken down chopper rider, even when there were two bikers ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

That looks good Prof, makes it like a gusset and blends that oil tank right in - clean.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

looks good. Nice mock-up using CAD... cardboard application design.

A small chrome coil box / electric box between the oil tank and seat post would help fill in that gap. It could house ignition coils, toggle switches (head/tail lights, signals, kill switch) and ignition switch.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Tom did a great job on that, well done - your vision to hide that frame rail is done! You made it look great!

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Wow, that is so good, great job. I really like the way you did it and the way it sits now compared to with the original frame.
Original wheelbase for a 1970 T120 was 1,400mm (55"), so a great stretch to 72"!

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 downtub...

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/fr...
