Visiting Jason Aug 18...

Caught up with a few of the CA blokes last night. Originally the plan was to introduce our fellas to an interstater member, Bob, here in Adelaide with work and camping not too far from Jason. As it turned out at the last moment, the two days available were not possible for Bob, but a couple of us de...

Even more effective in heavy rain. Will try for one before winter is over.

Willunga Swap Meet 2018...

CA stall and chopper display usually just inside the gate. Meet at Prof's (A mile away) around 11am and go for a local ride if weather is ok. Bring your choppers to make our display effective.

Chopper on the beach...

Front head gasket was leaking oil, so pulled head off on Saturday and installed a new gasket. Left everything to dry (exhaust silicone in particular) over night. Whole job done with tools I carry in my tool kit. Benefit of Frisco tank is it doesn't need to be removed... http://www.choppersaustralia....

Re: Lars BMW rear suspension...

Lars picked up his cafe'd BM today. Here's the remainder of the story... Final jobs included cleaning up any dags from welding. Side stand also had some funny lumps of weld and steel on it from a previous life. Surprises customers how much time final prep takes... http://www.choppersaustralia.com/P...

Re: Springer build with a difference...

So now for final set up of axle spacing. I will run a HD speedo on the right hand side. HD axles are 19mm while this axle is 15mm. So speedo needs a bush as a part of the spacing. The axle bearing is also exposed to the weather, so I need to incoporate a seal which will be an 'o' ring squeezed betwe...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Just looking back at your original photo of the frame on the table. Frame is level. Girder touches the table top. Distance of rear axle plates to table top (less distance of girder axle hole from table top) is basically the amount you will need to raise the steering head if you keep the same rake an...

Re: 001 Bazza's Triumph...

Finished machine. I came across it for sale a couple of years back. Bazza said he loved riding it, but time was against him and he wanted it ridden and not sitting around. Professional paint job and gold is actual gold plating. http://www.choppersaustralia.com/Picture library 4/CNBBazza'sTrumpy-00.j...

Springer build with a difference...

When I originally began my shovel build I planned a damped springer. To get it on the road, I extended its narrow glide front end. Later down the track, I swapped the disc brake for a twin leading shoe drum brake off a Kawasaki. Two years or so ago, Victor bought in a pair of Ford radius rods so I c...

Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

After mounting the electrics box, which I kept as far forwards as I could to clear chain (which it just does) and reduce exposed cable coming from the front, I realised the carby air cleaners would most likely foul the front of the box. So I asked CAnny to bring his carbies and air cleaners so we co...
