Ahhhh .... couldn't agree more, Ollie!!

And even when it's finished, & you think it is as you want it to be, along comes something else to over-capitalize it. eg Chopper Shox, new set of bars, different seat set-up. Not to mention engine & transmission work!!

My bottomless pit(s) never, evere get over the half way mark.

But, hey, isn't that what building a Chopper is all about. Constant modification, improvement, improvisation, innovation.

Get on board RickB56. It's a great journey.

Thanks Tex, I thought my psychosis was showing.
750/4 Sonic chopper.
A custom bike or a chopper should be something that has had the original essence of its existence altered to project the skills, objectives and artistic vision of its creator so the viewer or “beholder” and the creator can be positively stimulated by the actual bold or sublime beauty of the bike. Both need to project an essence of suitability, practicality, function and righteousness that has no stand for mediocrity or aesthetic blasphemy.

I reckon there are a lot of holes in life into which a man can throw money. I had a boat like that once. It tried to kill me. I've had a woman like that a few times. They probably wanted or still want to kill me.

Had a look at the Maximum frames Ollie. Worth a look. Probably do the job, although I do have this photo of what I want to build. The website seemed to imply you can send them a photo and get something done. But then Pommy Chopper can do that too.
