Thanks for the props guys.Been a rather busy year for me with a change in jobs and alot of time away from home but I'm back now and have my spare time again.

The first big wheel bike is too replace the one I sold to a mate in Murchison,he bought it to sit next to his 1500hp blown injected EH (AGRO64).This one is about 600mm shorter and with less rake but same rear wheel design.Not set on the bars yet but they'll do till I get it rollin and make something for it?Image

The little white Bobber was for a friend so his wife could ride around with him.Yes he bought a sled off me before hand.This little bike had alot of time spent on making it useable for a person who is only 5ft2" while still looking cool and looking bigger than it really is.Pictures don't show but it has a metallic pearl clear over some very bright white with opposing black componants for contrast.I know I shouldn't have painted a pushie how I want to paint a real Bobber though?Oh well...
Image

The dark sled is actually a Ford colour found on the XR models called EGO.The pictures don't do it justice but that bike is know in Noosa.That was a nice bike to ride and look at,it doe's tick all the boxes!

And the Chopp is being made for a friend who always borrows a bike on our pub crawls,now he has no excuse.I'll post more pics and info later if I get some work done in time.Heres some parts for the chopp

Twisted cranks,twisted pedals,radial 72 spoke 26"rims,a fat mexican lucky 7 chain wheel and some swirl grips.

Great work, foopy!

I like the White Bobber. Those wheels give it the "Scandinavian" look.

Nice Gear, twisted cranks etc......i can imagine these are the perfect vehicle for bombing around Wagga....your pub crawls must be a hoot!

also dig the fat wheel number, it looks like the rails to a hd sportster......

Monday Morning 9:30 ALL CLASS!

Hi all,the chopp should be painted this week as it is in primer awaiting blocking back and then some colour,well some 2k Coral Black.The trees have been polished and we are set to take it on a pub ride this weekend if plans go well.

Heres the back end after some little mods to suit the taller wheel combo the customer wanted and I slotted the rear guard mount to hug the tyre a bit more.I don't make MTB's here...he-he-he.

I'll post more pics this week when it's painted and dressed!

Ok it has paint on it now it needs to be colour sanded and cleared.Yes I did and will sand between primer,paint and clear coats just to get it as smooth as possible.Black goes on soooo easy but man it shows every single bump or pin hole so I have been a very fussy busy boy with this one...

DeBeers Paint and Valspar clear system with a Iwata copy gun.Yep a $90 Chinese gun that even came with Iwata paper work and uses Iwata spares!
My primer gun cost more than double that...

Ok small update, got a 18x8.5 rim coming for the big wheel sled!
I will use a 250-300 2nd hand bike tyre (any one got a old one laying around) to make for a better handling and lighter wheel unit than a car rim and car tyre.

Rim...

Should look sik when done!
