Not the best start to new year!

Had a pretty solid day New Years Eve. Fairly done in by the time tea was over and cleanup done, so sat down to make a few calls. Jason was on his way home from work and we both decided on the spur of the moment that a short ride would freshen us up. Quickly kitted up and was soon enjoying that lovel...

Trad choppers seen on the Gold Coast...

My son Paul who is currently on the Gold Coast, saw these trad choppers roll past and followed them to a servo where he had a chat and got photos. Encouraging that they appeared to be all in their 20's - 30's... great news for the future of trad choppers. They say they are not hassled at all by The ...

Christmas 2019 at TCS...

Christmas at The Chopper Shed was a fairly quiet affair this year, but we still had a pretty good time... I've been working on a couple of bikes including this twin cam which is being engineered as an ICV (individually constructed vehicle required to adhere to all current regs). Took about three day...

Re: My sunset ride 2019...

Was un-improvable!!! But my day almost really ended tonight. I did the weeks shopping in McLaren Vale four miles away. On my way home (lights on and still dusk) a four wheel drive swerved way across the white line when only yards away. I instinctively heaved the chopper to the left and he missed by ...

My sunset ride 2019...

The last few days have been fairly tiring, and after finishing work after six tonight and then cooking tea and cleaning up, I am rather 'done in'. Do I go to bed and watch a movie or catch some wind on two wheels. As tired as I am, the latter really appeals, so after getting permission from she who ...

2019 MRSA Toy Run...

I've been going to MRASA committee meetings this year and have discovered the enormous amount of work the small committee does in protecting bikers from over enthusiastic law makers. The list of their achievements is a long one. If you enjoy not having front number plates thank the MRASA. If you lik...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

All interesting information. I am often able to use hollow bar as a starting point for frame tube slugs to save a lot of boring. I always chamfer ends of slugs, but that has been to make them easier to tap in... relieving a further stress point makes good sense. People don't realise how much frames ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Wow! That's a high steering head. Have you considered shortening the bottom link for regio and then putting longer one back afterwards so you can have a bit more rake? Just in case you haven't thought of it, the wheel will move forwards a bit when the bikes full weight comes onto the girder. I would...

Re: 2019 Chopper Muster November 30th

Today was spent setting up Prof's Paddock for the Muster. Once again this year we will have knife and axe throwing with the guidance of Bones and Chris... Made up some new axe targets mounted permanently to pallets... just have to fine some room to store them! The intrepid workers practicing their c...
