Pan upgrade...

Rayne's pan is moving into its third reincarnation. First time round was a reasonably wide tyred, DNA springered chopper with nothing too extreme. Second time it got a new frame to suit a standard 16x5 rear tyre with a very high sissy bar narrow glide front end and everything very narrow and tall. R...

There were a large number of stalls both displays by clubs (Z Owners, Levis, Adventist Riders, Choppers Australia of course and some others I can't recall), organisations including the MRA, SA police historical, and busi...

Muster patch

If you are riding in our 13th Annual Chopper Muster on November 25th are you interested in the cloth patch below. Should cost $10 or less. 40 - 50mm diameter. The idea is to have one each year varying in shape and colours. If you think it is a bad idea please let me know. If you would purchase one o...

2018 Balhannah Swap Meet...

We always have a Choppers Australia stall at the Balhanah motorcycle only swap meet. I also attend swap meets to see what I can find for future customers. Business wise it is not profitable, but does mean that blokes can get some hard to find chopper parts they would not otherwise know about. I deci...

Balhanah motorcycle only swap meet this Sunday

CA stall, so as many choppers as possible. The more choppers the more impact and the more interest. I'll be camping up there tonight if anyone would like to join me. Swap meet starts 7am. Remember to turn your clocks forwards one hour tonight to silly time...

Rain, sand and no sun...

Rob and son Dylan spent a few days at The Chopper Shed getting his shovel ready for the ride to Shovelfest in Bendigo on the 14th of this month. We got a 21" wheel on the front which involved machining up axle spacers... and then one of the pistons wouldn't fully return so that had to be pulled apar...

Re: Victor’s Shovel Chopper

last comment excellent. If you build a machine that you just love to look at, you can't get much better than that.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

I've skimmed a couple of wheel flanges (with rim and tyre) on my milling machine. You are more likely to find an engineering shop with a big enough mill than a big enough lathe.

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Finalising critical measurements... Reason I am beginning at bottom end is because my rear legs (well the chopper's that is) are oval shaped and will be welded on the inside to the bottom triple tree. Would be much easier if I had round legs and could do it Victor's way. At the risk of boring many ...

Re: Springer build with a difference...

Having worked out my dimensions to achieve the rake and trail I am aiming for, I'm going to now build the rockers followed by the back legs and bottom triple tree... Rockers... First step is to mark out the three holes, the back two for the rear leg and front leg pivots and the front one for the axl...

Re: Richard's DOHC Cafe Racer...

Fuel cap and baffle... Fuel filler is a flimsy affair and doesn't seal. I found out the hard way ending up with a lap full of petrol. Apparently the fuel cap has already had to be replaced. I personally would have machined up a neck so it was substantial. Anyway, the current neck does not seal. Thi...
