Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Wow, that is so good, great job. I really like the way you did it and the way it sits now compared to with the original frame. Thanks TriNortchopz, that means a lot. The rolling chassis, with the dimensions and lines has worked out far beyond my expectations! The overall length being so big has giv...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

With the Ledslead weld-on kickstand now in place, the rolling chassis is complete and has now come home. https://i.ibb.co/g9XTFrm/Front3qtr.jpg This picture shows a before & after of the frame chop, and really highlights why we went to the effort of doing it. As good as it looked before, it looks a ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

I finally got to see the completed roller in person on the weekend when we dropped the kickstand off to Tom, and it looks absolutely amazing! The size, dimensions and lines on this bike have turned out way better than I could have imagined. And for someone my size (being 6 foot tall), it's a nice bi...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Yeah looking at the sa.gov.au website it states: A motorcycle must have sufficient ground clearance so that no part of the body work or frame will contact the road when one or both tyres are deflated. Seems like a weird way to measure ground clearance rather than just giving a dimension!? WA has not...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Prof the hardtail has 6" of rear stretch.

I haven't seen the roller since it's been finished but during mockup we measured the ground clearance at 105mm, but I imagine it might have dropped a couple of mm. We're cutting it close, and we still have to add a kick stand yet, but I think we'll scrape by.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

After a stressful few weeks and a lot of back and forth between the certification company and my fabricator, our Chopped and stretched little frame loop has now passed the inspection stage and I have 7 pages of detailed certification reports on the frame stating an "Absence of Discontinuities" for a...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

We did the inspection last week, and found one weld joining to the cast neck assembly had a slight crack (due to some evidence of brazing residue), another at the neck assembly has what appears to be a slight gas bubble (quite deep) but told not worth worrying about, and the weld at the join on the ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

I know the x-raying is a pain in the butt and it's going to be expensive, probably set me back around $800 or so. But the Transport Department has specifically asked for this, so I have no choice, especially considering my biggest goal with this project is to follow all their steps and get full regi...
