Re: What price a chopper...?

I know it costs more than you initially expect. My attempt at a budget build starting with an OIF Triumph that was already raked and with various custom touches including chroming, bates style headlight, 2 into 1 exhaust, magneto, 16" back wheel and has probably cost me an additional $2k and I'm sti...

Re: 70's US album pics...

Great post!

It seems to me I stopped seeing bikes like these on the road around the mid 80s. I suppose by then they were out of fashion. Well, for some anyway...

Thanks for the inspiration!

Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2014 - Sydney

Last Sunday (28 September) was the 3rd annual Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. It is primarily an event for cafe racers, bobbers, brat bikes and customs. Cruisers, sports bikes and modern scooters are not encouraged. That being the case, I decided to drive a backup vehicle since I only have a cruiser...

Re: Painting tins in Sydney?

I'm in Balmain and can give you a bit of advice & a demo if you like. I do paint my own stuff but am not really that well set up for it (living in a unit). Having said that, if you're happy with acrylic then maybe we can do something (I have to re-do all my tins as I left them in primer too long wai...

Re: Sandy Creek pub invite to riders...

Bummer, hope you're up and about now Bear. It's amazing how much impact (no pun intended) an accident can have on your life, especially when you throw in a few more of life's bumps.

Re: Indicator bracket

Thanks guys! I'm fairly happy with it considering I had a few ideas bouncing around in my head with no clear intention when I started. I just looked to see what steel I had in the 'shed' and went from there, making it up as I went along... Was hoping to get in in primer the same day so I can paint i...

Indicator bracket

I will soon have an FLH rear guard ready to put on my 94 dyna convertible. I had originally intended on mounting the indicators directly onto the guard. I drilled the holes then realised that the factory saddle bags would be in the way. I filled the holes and pondered what to do as anywhere else I p...

Ride through Royal National Park, Sydney

I went for a ride with a couple of mates yesterday. I almost didn't go after a late night followed by a restless sleep but am glad I did. It was a cool and windy day but that helped me stay awake although the urge to sleep after a large warm meal at the halfway mark was powerful. No choppers though,...

Re: Dynaslide

I can't believe how long things have been taking with this bike. I'm finally getting close now... I managed to make the bracket that I need so I can secure the factory saddle bags to the FLH rear guard that I've been modifying to fit the Dyna. The wheel clamp that I found and used to make a seat pan...

CB750E Axeman Chopper on Ebay

This bike is currently for sale on Ebay. I have no association with it but thought it was cool and worth a look for anyone with a spare $6,500 http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae98/canbro65/Crap/71HondaChop_zps95807055.jpg Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HONDA-750-4-CLASSIC-AXEMAN-CHOP...

Re: chop aus shirts.

I find it hard to believe that you had to talk them into taking the shovel chop for a spin! Unless of course, that's a DNA front end?

Re: Throttle Roll 2014

OK, you asked for it so here's 90+ photos from Throttle Roll. There's a few pics with you in mind Bear - see if you can spot them! Event pre-ride from Tempe to Stanwell Tops. I only took pics at the starting point of the ride as I had some chores to attend to. It was lucky I didn't go as I ended up ...
