Morgan Overnighter & Swap Meet 2020

Swap meets finally starting to happen again. Clear Skies overhead. Morgan Swap meet; the first in a long time, so what better excuse for camping overnight and putting a few miles on the old girl. A chance to find some bits for my customers, to promote Choppers Australia and perhaps meet a few like m...

Re: Stamping VINNS...

Myself included EK, crooked numbers, upside down, double stamped. Took a bit of time to work out a reasonable system.

Stamping VINNS...

There are a few things worth knowing when stamping a VIN Number onto your chopper. It is virtually impossible to get the numbers and letters in a straight line without a guide... not easy on a flat surface much less a curved steering head. To keep things straight I use a piece of 30mm angle iron a b...

Hope he stays enthused. Choppers will only survive if our younger ones get the bug. Will be a nice little chopper.

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

Mounting the fuel tank... We are using the stock tank because Garry will be travelling longish distances (He lives 200 miles from civilisation!) and because it is actually quite a good proportioned tank. We are making some changes though; front will be raised about 3", cowl that covers filler and f...

Rear Indicators... Haven't seen this done before, though I'm sure it has been. Makes for a very tidy set up and also a clean finish to the frame rails. Instead of the standard mounting procedure, we are pulling the electrics out of the indicators and mounting them in the end of each seat rail. Beca...
