A mate picked up four at a garage sale the other day and gave them to club. No doubt about you Brits. You chop anything and aren't too worried about chrome or fashion.

Absolutely right Andrew, my claim to fame locally is i'm the bloke that has Triked a 1 year old VN1500 that was in mint condition and also triked a Yammy Royal star with only 2000 miles on the clock!!!!

Lets face it, standard Bikes are crap, and they always look better with a few bits cut off and thrown in the bin!!!

Cheers all.

No bike is sacred...

Post by Prof » Mon Jun 26, 2006 7:29 pm

Whilst it is a well known fact that Goda rides a Harley and the Devil is too chicken to get on a bike, I am amazed at how much in awe of stock bikes so many riders are.

Me ole dad said time and time again that every mass produced item is made according to price and fashion and can always stand improvement!

Some people are horrified that I have chopped a perfectly stock and low mileage shovel, but idf it is a great bike, all the more reason to chop it and make it fit! If you want a bike to ride, pick the best and then start chopping.. is my philosohy...

Don't worry chap's i will certainly be bringing my "chop anything" mentality with me to Oz.
(When the idiot who's buying our house pulls out his finger and pay's up)!!!!!

First project will prob be a Bonnie or an XS650 hardtail.

Then another Z650 hardtail for the wife (so i can have my old chop back).

And hopefully a few frames and bits for the local's!!!

Cheers all.

Wow, some great lookin Yammys there, (i think the last one is a kwaka though)........I had the niegbor in here yesterday wanting to borrow a spanner, he looked at my stock cb750f2 and stated the pod filters i have on it are illegal (he's a cop)........got me thinking, that if the govt had any idea they would be happy to see people chopping bikes and cars, because of the industry it creates and not just directly to motorcycling either. I figure that i could go out and buy a Harley or MV or whatever, but combined with my mortgage payments, all my money would be going to the bank....one bank......but because i chop bikes, my money goes to motorcycle shops, wreckers, fellows i trade with, steel outfits, etc......when the govt ease my path to the road my money will go to travel, accomidation, restaurants, other bike shops, etc.......mostly smaller concerns but spreading the little money we get out as far as possible......that could assist in deflating the deficet because my money is being used and reused before some plonker sends it OS.......until then ill attempt to get my chop on the road.......and know im savin the economy from a fate worse than bankruptcy.......but hell im board with not bein able to ride.......think ill become a crim instead. (nah not really)
