Pushie Chopper

Post by Pushie Pirate » Sat Nov 16, 2013 7:29 am

Joined a while back have been thinking about a chopper so here's where I'm at. Started with a frame
that I have had for a bit but never liked, always feel a bit nervous when I cut up a perfectly good frame.

Didn't like my original plan with the extra tube so went with the KISS method (Keep It Simple Stupid)
to open up the gap from the cruiser frames top and bottom tube had to cut the seat post clear and
small wedge in the bottom of the seat tube, done this a few times on these frames.

After some welding, bogging, primer and paint I'm rolling but not quite riding, plan to get pedals,
chain and cruising on her today hopefully!

Finished her off rides nice, steering very responsive with the small front wheel.

Looks good, personally I would have liked to see the front forks chromed or painted silver and a taller sissy bar at the back. From what I can see on the pictures it's great workmanship, keep up the good work.
