Re: Foot throttle?

Still same controls elsewhere. So If I am using the camera right handed means I have to move foot forwards to brake if I need to slow quickly. Don't use foot throttle all the time, just to relax my right arm/wrist and when taking pics and video. Also nice to have a couple of foot positions when on a...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

to keep a straight line from steering head to rear axle, you could lengthen both the front down tube and the seat post. Remember that once there is weight on the bike and the girder arms move upwards they will also push the axle outwards. Getting there though.

Then rake the steering head enough to just meet 550mm. This should give you plenty of trail... and get your chopper level. At a...
