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? Took a visit to Sideshow Cycles facebook page and saw your machine in an Aug. 21 post" https://www.facebook.com/Sideshow-Cycles-360301953986494/ and adde...

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...

Re: 1975 Triumph t150 Chopper

Does your T150 chopper have the stock frame? The easiest way is like Prof says, which I have done several times on BSA, Triumphs, Norton, Kaw, is find tapered roller bearings from my local bearing supplier that fir the neck, then machine a stem to fit the springer or girder or other frontend. Just n...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

Great job on this build, it looks very clean. The stance is just right,and your forwards are clean and simple, and nice seat. The switches behind the oil tank is how I do it too;keeps them easily accessible(kill switch on throttle side) and cleans up the bars. Good to see that reinforced sissy bar a...

Sounds like a good ride. Who built that springer - it looks like a nice design.

Re: Chopper on the beach...

Some great shots of your chop on the beach Prof. Looks like you know your toolbag well. Got a question - what did you use to decoke the combustion chamber?I read of soaking in ATF, using GM top-end cleaner, methanol-type paint stripper, carb cleaner...someone even suggested oven cleaner - but that i...

Re: 001 Bazza's Triumph...

Looks great! I like that 'batwing' top tree on the springer and how that theme is carried to other parts. Surprised that springer with that rake fit in the 550 rule. Looks like I missed reading some of the build... the front frame rails look wide - is that frame from a inline-4?
