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: Long term Triumph Chopper project

This Thread: P&P girder from a month ago on Chop Cult may be of interest; the original poster needed a new shock as the original by P&P was rusted beyond repair, and interestingly, the spring was interfering with the upper cross link spacer. Measurement information is posted, with options for replac...

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?

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 probl...

Re: The "Poision Pup"

Just looking for an update - how is that FI system working? I read they were known to be unreliable. See forum discussion here: "In the early 1980's Kawasaki issued a service bulletin telling dealers to remove the fuel injection and replace with carbs. The system is very unreliable - esp. 30 years o...

Re: Couple of little ideas I had

I like that GPS speedo. Any chance of an update on how it has worked? I am wondering about the GPS antennae they mention on the website - what is it, and how did you install that?

Re: Almost ready for the road..

That looks awesome, much better than when you first got it. Love the stance, and that tank looks great. Well done!

Re: SA EasyRider chopper...

That's an awesome looking rigid chop. The owner looks very happy. It doesn't need to be a certain way - it's a chopper - and I don't see anything that needs changing; Well, if it were mine, I'd be tempted to throw on a springer or girder front end...but that's just me.

Re: Santee Savior frames for Hondas?

I ran both the Amen Saviour (axle through middle of spring assembly) and the Santee softail (axle through plate behind spring assembly) for 10 years each. I had a Kawasaki 1013 kit on a Z-1 engine in the Amen, and a 1105 kit on a Z1000 engine in the Santee and ran them hard, with long front ends. Th...
