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: Hi everyone, south of adelaide

You'll be quite safe with 4" slugs. I do them in stainless... just need one fork tube to copy.

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.

Re: My current builds

The softie has quite a nice stance. You can get 3 degree raked fork bearing cups which will give you true rake. Raked triple trees reduce trail and therefor steering stability drastically especially with only 4" overs... only beneficial when going over 45 degree rake and 10" + overs. See here for mo...

Re: Hi everyone, south of adelaide

Interesting frame on the yellow Honda. Do you know where your dad bought it and roughly what year it would have been?

Three degree rake, extensions, stainless pullbacks & flat bars

A 2003 Softail was brought in last week for a 3 degree rake, 3" extension and a set of pullbacks. The owner had tried out the pullbacks on my shovel chopper and wanted some the same. Here are the forks disassembled with the longer tubes. Tubes are 4" over but the rake kit will lose an inch which wil...

2018 Knees in the Breeze Ride in Adelaide...

Taken a while to get these pics up but here are a few from the latest "Knees in the Breeze" ride a couple of weeks back. Started at 10am so arrived around 9am so I could see the bikes as they came in. Turns out very few customs and aside from a couple of Triumphs only a classic 50's Ariel Square Fou...

Re: ADR's

An engineer in Qld said it did not apply to pre 74. Pre 88 would be fantastic.

Easter 2018 Hamilton/Mt Gambier ride

This ride has been on the books for a year. Unfortunately for a bunch of CA riders, work or family intervened and in the end only four of us were privileged to hit the road. I met Kevin and Rob at Kangarilla at 9.00am Friday and we cruised through to Strathalbyn via Meadows where we picked up Terry....

Re: Choppers Australia calendar date issue

Henry's just found problems too... can't hardly believe it as it dates were double checked. I was having a lot of trouble with my computer network at the time. I wonder if corrections went unsaved because the network dropped out at the crucial moments. Someone said a couple of the other months have ...

Re: 2018 Calendars for sale...

Doesn't sound too good. Will check it out.

Dropped by this afternoon, but no ute in the driveway so rode on.
