Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Getting there. Amazing that fresh welds have to be x rayed! In SA the engineer's physical inspection is all that is required.

Re: building a frame for a Twin Cam A...

Sorry for the delay. I've been trying against the odds to get this thread up to the current situation, and at last finally can get some done tonight... My favourite treatment on the rear of swing arm chopper frames is a curve that matches the top of the guard. This requires bending a wide curve in t...

Adelaide Bike Night Feb 2020...

I was talking to a customer late Saturday afternoon and he mentioned he had to head off to get to a bike night at Mile End in Adelaide at 7pm. I'd been to one last year and despite being bushed, considered the possibility of heading down there. Thought I'd call Jason and see if he wanted to join me....

The Oz Ride...

I've been talking about an around Oz trip on the chopper for a few years now. The time has come to bite the bullet! I'm aiming to head off from Adelaide to Perth, Darwin, Townsville and down the east coast etc beginning of August (timing a bit flexible) next year. Proposing this time as winter is be...

Re: building a frame for a Twin Cam A...

Lower frame tubes right side... The lower frame tubes start at the steering head sweep under the motor on both sides turn up behind the clutch/gearbox and when they get close to the shocker top mount curve around to line up with the top of the rear guard. Each side needs to be identical. The bottom...

Re: Twin Cam needs new frame

Finally have a fast computer and access to all my picture files. I've been able to begin catching up on work as a result of a variety of family and other set backs, so at last we can show you Garry's build. Quite a few hours went into researching frames. We found two possibilities claiming to suit t...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Have you considered shortening the bottom link for regio and then putting correct length back to allow you some extra rake. You definitely want to get as much trail as you can... at least 5" .

Re: Feb 2020 Goolwa Ride... well, a bit of it!

Internal tubing from gas hot water services. I picked up a few lengths of faulty tube from the manufacturer's seconds outlet years back. Knock some of the harshness off but the pipes are still loud... which is the way I like it.

Friday night spin with Jason (Feb20)...

It's been an unrelenting week trying catch up on two choppers under construction in the workshop, workman away for the third week, ferrying and or attending to two sick women in the household, having to jump this way and that at a moments notice, cooking, shopping etc. So tonight at 5pm despite my t...
