Jan 2019 Midnight Ride

I realised a few days ago, we were going to have some good hot weather, which with Christmas/New Year over would be a good opportunity for a Midnight Ride. A quick ring around of the usual suspects plus some calls by Kevin, gave me a promise of 5 or 6 riders, which is more than enough for good ride....

Midnight ride this Wednesday night...

Midnight ride seems appropriate, with New Year celebrations over and some nice hot weather. Meet at Villies Richmond as usual at 8pm. Those attending chose a route and we ride... http://www.choppersaustralia.com/PictureLibrary6/CAFMidnightRide2019.jpg http://www.choppersaustralia.com/PictureLibrary6...

Family spin to Second Valley Jan 2019...

My son Michael and his girlfriend Tanya and her son, Christian, flew down from the Gold Coast for our New Year Gathering. The following day Michael talked everyone into riding our choppers down to second valley. Those who have been around CA for a while know Michael rides his sporty chopper to work ...

Harmon has been sold. The other Honda is a nice looking classic chopper if ever there was one!

Re: Improved Sporty battery setup...

Suspension I've developed over 10 years and patented. Just waiting on setting up a 50 ton press to press out parts and market it. Works perfectly, but not as simple as it looks. Allows Hard tail benefits with suspension.

Improved Sporty battery setup...

The Chopper Shed had four visitors Saturday; a couple of customers. One, a customer needing fibreglass mat for a muffler. The baffle blew out! Which he retrieved. Good thing there wasn't a car close behind. Rob also came up to try out the green sporty and Steed for size. In the arvo Jon rolled in wi...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Definitely tucked up in the air. Is a lovely looking girder though. Pity the pivots on the trees are set so far forwards of the headstem. A lot of girders had the bottom pivot level with the centre of the headstem with the top one forwards to keep the axle back... in the interests of sufficient trai...

Speedo trouble shooting and drive repair...

Speedo on Paul's recently purchased Honda Steed was not working. Is the problem in the speedo, cable or drive? Let's find out. Step one... Separate speedo and cable, jack up wheel and spin it. If cable is turning it will be a problem with the speedo. As a double check, while spinning the front wheel...

Short spin on the backroads...

A customer didn't show up today as expected, so I did a couple of fix up jobs on Paul's Steed with Stevo's help. Paul suggested Stevo go for a spin to clear some cobwebs and I figured why not join him... more fun two choppers together... http://www.choppersaustralia.com/PictureLibrary6/CAFStevoProfD...

Re: Captain America revisited...

Rear wide curved pipe... Bent pipes came back today with Rayne. Thankyou sir. Con doesn't want the rear one and unfortunately the tube benders got the front one wrong... 20mm too short on the downward straight so that it fouls the cone. I'll have to take it back Monday for a rebend... what a pain. ...

Learning to become a chopper chick...

A call from Rayne a couple of days ago requested use of a Chopper Shed bike to give his sister a riding lesson. I didn't think my shovel was quite the machine for a learner, Paul's 550/4 with its 45 degree rake, 10.5" over forks and narrow W bars would not be that easy either and Oscar had my CB750....

Re: Captain America revisited...

Front End... Current front end has billet raked triple trees... definitely not old school, anything like the original or any good for on the highway. I have measured up the trail and it was under 2". Very light handling, but not stable at speed at all. Solution to my mind is stock triple trees and ...
