Hello fellow enthusiast, SA lad here

Post by nozila » Mon Feb 04, 2013 1:22 pm

Hi all,

As per topic heading, Im from SA in the northern suburbs. The name is Duc. I dont own a chopper per se but I do own a few motorcycles, one of which I intend to chop somewhat with the assistance of Andrew (Prof) when the availability arises.

Ive recently been fascinated by old school HD ironhead sportsters and shovelheads. So I wouldnt mind getting my hands on one in the future when funds allow.

Well, thats all for now. Any questions, dont hesitate to ask.

Duc

Hey Jon,

Thanks, but Im far from young. Although I wish I was 10yrs younger and started riding then.

Currently working on modifying a XS1100 into either a bobber or chopper. Just need to confirm a date to bring her to the 'chopper shed' for her makeover. Until then, just cleaning out the carby's and simplifying the wiring.

Hey Bear,

Good question. It's pronounced dook. But if you forget, it's fine.

Catching up at Prof's would be nice. I have been meanin to head there for some time but too many things to do that hindered that.

I see you have a CX? If so, what model. If you dont mind me asking.

Transformation looks good. From the looks of that trolley jack, seems its drop quite a few inches in ride profile.

Hey mate,

Not yet. Picking it up this weekend. Still working on 2 bikes and soon to be 3. Thinking of hardtailing the XS650 and bobbing the XS1100.

Just got an offer too good to refuse on a 51 HD Panhead (FL). So in the next coming weeks, will post pics of it where it arrives.

My other projects will so be going ahead but I will be on the streets on this HD as oppose to the 250.
