Re: My current builds

Forwards, i do them normal height and usually mount off engine mounting area... have a look at The Chopper Shed forum and you will see a few I have done. Feet are out a bit wide but not as bad as the GSX Suzukis.

Re: On the beach...

Yes. I really liked it. Stuck the phone in the sand on 10 sec delay which is why the low aspect. Was tempting to go home and get my sleeping bag and come back and bed down for the night. Sound of the waves sure is restful...

Vulcan 88 Trike stretch & rake...

Latest project is this Vulcan 88 trike. Owner has built it over a number of years having put 500 thousand k on it as a solo and then as a sidecar. Sidecar was not to his liking, so he picked up a trike kit from the US. Motor is interesting. Looks air cooled but water cooled, twin plug heads and deve...

On the beach...

I had to slip down to Seaford to do a couple of jobs. Was warm enough to get away with jeans, T shirt and cutoffs and despite being partly in suburbia these days the 10 minute ride was enjoyable. However, first stop in McLaren Vale to do banking and pick up some supplies for my travel kit which is a...

Re: Three degree rake, extensions, stainless pullbacks & flat bars

Thanks Dave. May see you both Wednesday night Midnight Ride. I was just on the phone to Wayne who rides a very hotted up XS digger. He's just bought a MV street rocket and says the difference in handling is amazing. Sports bike has to be 'ridden' the whole time whereas the digger with the extra rake...

Re: Three degree rake, extensions, stainless pullbacks & flat bars

Well, here is the final bit of the story... wiring into headlight and a new brake hose. Existing hole to be widened and a second hole to be drilled and widened. the holes are made large enough to allow the wiring in with space to spare to reduce likelyhood of damage to the wires form vibration. Step...

Re: Hi everyone, south of adelaide

Yes; about 1¼". Have run slugs on my shovel for 170 thousand miles without them even coming loose. Have hit a couple of nasty things over that time one which slightly bent the steering head but did not effect the slugs. I will do up to 6" slugs as that allows the join to be an inch or so up from the...

Re: Three degree rake, extensions, stainless pullbacks & flat bars

Finished the pullbacks this afternoon. They need a final reinforcing piece which we locate at the bottom. Reason is to stop flex in the flat piece that ties the bars together. Here cut out to fit the bars, clear the headstem nut cap. Two cut outs are for the wiring... http://www.choppersaustralia.co...

Re: Easter 2018 Hamilton/Mt Gambier ride

Very short ride compared with the ones you do! But this one was just long enough to start to really get in the groove. Will get your latest offering up in the next couple of days.
