Re: Reintroduction

Show us what you want to build and we'll watch with interest. Nothing wrong with Viragos by the way. I've chopped a number of them for customers.

They will check for general adherance to SA Road Rules (can't call it roadworthiness!!!) and the front end looks to be out past our nanny state's Ridikulus550Rool. A phone call and h...

She was a very keen ballroom dancer from young, but unfortunately dipped out marrying me as ...

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Says he who just built his own with far less equipment and less experience! Traditional way of building using round stock and and drilled trees is simpler and easier to keep everything square. If anyone is contemplating using oval legs, there's far more measuring to keep everything square and weldin...

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Bottom pivots for front legs... Bottom pivots will run the same M16 shoulder screws as the rear legs. Could go back to M12, but will simplify rebushing if it is needed. Pivots are 24mm x 20mm cut out of 50x20 bar. One end will be machinedto 16mm to be a neat fit inside the legs... http://www.choppe...

Re: May 2019 Midnight Ride

The housings are steel, but black. I have temporarily painted them with spray chrome. Will get them chromed when I get my new pipes chromed. I'll put up a couple of better photos of them tomorrow if I can.

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Time for making the front legs. I am using 22mm OD x 5mm wall hydraulic tube. Wall thickness is a bit of over kill, but used because I want a slight bend near the rockers and a major bend at the spring base and wanted plenty of strength and wall thickness for welding in the tube. DOM would be more a...

As it turned out, two of our regulars were away a grand total of two enthusiastic chopper jocks rolled up. The ride int...
