Wayyyyyy too many forums versus the amount of traffic.
Website would grow if it wasn't so diluted with a few posts spread in a thousand forums. :)

Rotors are semi floating R1 aftermarket (about $75us each) cheaper than I could make them. I machined adaptors to suit the wheels which are aftermarket Harley.

1988 Vmax

I'm back, been busy with a couple of Vmax's between projects. This is my latest one. Not a chopper I know, but a ton of custom parts. I'll have to get some pics of some other projects I've worked on. This bike was totally stripped down from the original donor that I bought 6 months ago. A youtube cl...

Love your work Jedi. Good to see ya back on here. How easy/hard is it to get stuff like that rego'd over there? Greetings, Shouldn't be too hard, seems too be more of a "common sense" thing, if it structurally sound with safe welds etc, We do have rules and regulations about fenders etc but not ext...

Finished the manifold for running a single carb. Made the handlebars, grips, internal throttle and polished the seat. Most of the frame welding is finished since these pics. http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f202/Jedi-NZ/vstar%20XVS1100%20chopper/bike006Medium.jpg http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f...

XVS1100 chopper

Here's a couple of pics of my current project using an xvs motor. I have started the shaft to chain conversion using a drive housing which I'm currently in the process of making which goes across the frame and now makes the bike RSD which has eliminated any hassles. http://i48.photobucket.com/albums...
