Re: Captain America revisited...

Great work Prof. This replica is definitely "an exercise"! "Challenge in this case has been to find clear shots of the right side of the original chopper." I noticed here you had to relocate the master cylinder line to clear the pipes...thinkin' that the master cylinder needs to be moved (hidden) an...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Good to see it (kinda) on the frame. When measuring for neck spacers, aim to get the linkage mounts between upper and lower tree the same distance apart as the mounts on the girder legs; this will help promote smooth action without binding through the travel of their arc. What is your measurement on...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

That machine work looks awesome! Be great to see it installed - should make for a great upgrade. Are both sets of holes, the Zero° and 10° in the legs where the lower pair of linkages attach threaded for the cross shaft? Do you know which position you will be running it in (0 or 10°rake)? Been looki...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Great that those wheel guys were able to get the machining done. It looks like they took off just enough - it appears that an outer section on the top right has not been cut. I am still thinking about how it may have happened - perhaps squeezed or whacked with the drum bolted on. This would also mea...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

A 'new' front wheel - free is good! A disc with a different offset may allow an axle-mounted bracket fit in there. What is the space between the girder legs? That wobbly brake flange face on the hub is strange. Is the sprocket face the same? - have you measured across the hub faces to determine if t...
