Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Yeah Tom's thinking to improve the design by locking the spindles so only the bush area moves and wears, which as Prof has said is how it was done on old British bikes and old Indians. At the moment the P&P is a very crude design, and by having the spindles able to move, you could eventually wear ou...

Well while the rear wheel issues are being sorted out, Tom is pushing ahead with rebuilding the girder front end with plans for improving the fork pivoting assembly. https://image.ibb.co/i7GqFU/SSC_image03.jpg https://image.ibb.co/mDDFh9/SSC_image01.jpg https://image.ibb.co/mrre9p/SSC_image02.jpg

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Well the first little snag has been found. Tom was aligning the rear wheel in the frame yesterday and making up the spacers, and had it to the point where he was happy. He then gave the rear wheel a bit of a spin and the wheel was tracking true, but the drum brake wasn't and appeared to be wobbling ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

No we haven't thought about the rake and stretch required for this front end yet. We'll get it sitting on the ground and rolling first, then we'll be able to take 100% accurate measurements of what we have, and then determine what we think we need to do. Then I can start to talking to an Engineer...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

We have some progress! Tom Sharman at Sideshow Cycles is transforming my pile of parts into a roller at the moment, and it's looking real slick so far. We can see a fair few repairs the front loop will need going forward, but some of those issues might disappear if we get the go ahead to chop and st...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

It's looking very good! That back wheel is nice.Maybe the rear axle slots in that hardtail are for their axle plates to fit several different applications - part of production. I'm runnin' a long P&P girder on my Norton 850 rigid chop and never had a problem with the headlight experiencing any prob...

Re: Soaking night... by chopper of course...

Just curious Prof, what size tyre are you running up front? Looks like a tight fit in that front end.

Pain with most girders is light cannot be mounted anywhere but on the girder and collects all the road shocks as a result.
Yes that's a good point!
