Re: My sunset ride 2019...

Was un-improvable!!! But my day almost really ended tonight. I did the weeks shopping in McLaren Vale four miles away. On my way home (lights on and still dusk) a four wheel drive swerved way across the white line when only yards away. I instinctively heaved the chopper to the left and he missed by ...

My sunset ride 2019...

The last few days have been fairly tiring, and after finishing work after six tonight and then cooking tea and cleaning up, I am rather 'done in'. Do I go to bed and watch a movie or catch some wind on two wheels. As tired as I am, the latter really appeals, so after getting permission from she who ...

2019 MRSA Toy Run...

I've been going to MRASA committee meetings this year and have discovered the enormous amount of work the small committee does in protecting bikers from over enthusiastic law makers. The list of their achievements is a long one. If you enjoy not having front number plates thank the MRASA. If you lik...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

All interesting information. I am often able to use hollow bar as a starting point for frame tube slugs to save a lot of boring. I always chamfer ends of slugs, but that has been to make them easier to tap in... relieving a further stress point makes good sense. People don't realise how much frames ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Wow! That's a high steering head. Have you considered shortening the bottom link for regio and then putting longer one back afterwards so you can have a bit more rake? Just in case you haven't thought of it, the wheel will move forwards a bit when the bikes full weight comes onto the girder. I would...

Re: 2019 Chopper Muster November 30th

Today was spent setting up Prof's Paddock for the Muster. Once again this year we will have knife and axe throwing with the guidance of Bones and Chris... Made up some new axe targets mounted permanently to pallets... just have to fine some room to store them! The intrepid workers practicing their c...

Robs chop finally on the road

Rob's been dropping down to The Chopper Shed every weekend or so to get his shovel ready for the Muster ride. It's been a bit of a drama. Quite a bit done but problems still surfaced. Despite new rubbers and some extra machining, his twin pot PM rear caliper kept jamming the rotor with the following...

2019 Macclesfield Bike Show...

Choppers Australia had a display at the 3rd Macclesfield Bike Show and Swap Meet today. I arrived at 8am after a very enjoyable ride devoid of traffic, lycra propelled bicycles, kangaroos, wombats, koalas, fallen tree branches, massive pot holes and precipitation. Last year's event was very well org...
