I like the idea of the clip ons. Thanks for all the other suggestions as well, very valued and important to the process
But it's a chopper. Ive sent it over to JAT Choppers in Belgrave South. Steve Martin works there ( former owner of Bob Martin Engineering) and they are gunna rake it by moving the steering tube back, inserting a couple of gussets and prettying up some of the original welds.
I know it will blow the 550 rule but it has stock springs in the forks with 6 inch spacers, I'll drop those out and if I have to, slide the forks through the trees.
It'll take 4 weeks before I get it back, so stay tuned for some pics.
Now I can overhaul the carbies. woo hoo.

Certainly has a nice stance, and you might have written it previously in the post, but i missed it...but thats gonna need a longer front end...once you hit the anchors on that the whole rig will dip and change the trail (maybe for the better/maybe not) but those rails will be dragging dirt i reckon.......that being said..i reckon it looks Ace!

What rake is it...Woah.. or WOAH!

Here's some from today, got the engine in for a fit, put the pipes on and have the seat mount sorted out witht the rear fender mount.
Various bits painted, new triple trees. surprisingly, no bark lost today with engine install.

It's not made for leaning, its made for, other things...

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.

Yeah it maybe a little difficult cornering :lol:

I like the look of it, but does it come within the 550mm rule?
It looks pretty long :shock:

It was registered previously, so the reg office only wants a certificate of roadworthiness.
Either that or I buy a donor bike.
Either way, its dodgy, but it wont be the first time Ive ridden an illegal scoot

It was originally a new 9 incher. I had a hot rodder, cut a 60 mm strip out of the middle and he brazed or bronzed it back together. Its pretty snug. It also has a ridge that you cant see in the pic
I have the original Sonic fender strut that Im gunna cut up to make the prop.
After seeing the pics of Spokes bike, Im gunna do the mount on the fender, like the bottom mount of his sissy bar. Very trick

I took it off the work bench to set up the kick stand and get a bit more welding done.

I love this shot, everything lines up real nice, see the 10 mm offset sprocket down there on the donk ?

Im waiting on a set of forwards from TC Bros in the USA.
I decided not to use the billet HD aftermarket ones. I was also contemplating using a hydraulic disc brake rear end but this bike has cost way too much so far. Time to reel in the costs, get the fab done, pull it apart, paint it and get it on the road.
