Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Good stuff, I like it. Using an older design to update something that's not as old! Instead of threading the hole in the leg, I guess the shaft could also be locked on one side by having a lock nut on the inside of the arm and a cap nut on the outside and locking them together...if the section of th...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Thanks, I see the Webb design here with just one side threaded: http://drewgrant.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Webb.jpg "As you can see the right link has the spindle threaded into it while the left one is plain and locks up against a shoulder on the spindle, adjustment is by threading the sp...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

The shouldered bushings will be a big improvement over the straight bushing with flat bronze bushings on each side. It looks like the plan is to lock the shafts in one side of the leg (9/16" thread) by threading the holes, while the rest of the shaft is still 1/2". Then using 1/4" setscrews to lock ...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

Great job with that tank repair. You have great ideas and the skills to fabricate them so they look awesome! It's obvious you love details; I do too. That blade handle shifter is better than the 'axle nut wrench', and blows away anything you could buy. My idea for the eurethane would be to fabricate...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

Great job on gettin' it done to fit your schedule. It looks like a bit of a tight bend on the filter line; yup, a 45 would help there. Great idea to think of using urethane as a filler coat between the fins on the oil tank - I was not familiar with urethane for that type of application so had to res...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

Very nice work; great attention to details - like welding the top of the return and vent lines. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Progress is good. Those rear engine mount/footpeg mount plates are nice. Have you determined what the stretch and rake will be for the frame chop?

Re: 1975 Triumph t150 Chopper

Are there any numbers on the neck needed for registration? I still think you can use the original bearings - what is the ID? - and build a neck post to suit them. I have researched bearing catalogs extensively to get what I needed - to fit a girder on my rigid T120, I had a sleeve machined to fit ar...
