Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Tom's got the neck ready to receive new frame tubing. There was no way heating up the neck to try and melt the brazing and pull the tubing out was going to work, so he's had a machinist carefully bore out the tubing and then removed any remnants of the brazing by hand. We're just waiting on all the ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Yes TriNortchopz we are going to try and get that bend in the downtube as close to the neck casting as possible, hopefully right at the join. Obviously we can't slug it there with a bend nor risk TIG welding that close to the brazing inside the neck casting. So the plan is to bore the remainder of t...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

The first picture a couple of days ago was just showing that we had started to cut, not how we planned it to go back together :lol: Here you go, it might make more sense with this picture, with the rear half rolled back into place. So we've got 33 degrees of rake now, and the down tube will have a s...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

A high stretched up frame with a long front end was always the plan for this bike, so I'm very happy with where the steering head will end up, and it complies with the law by meeting the 550 rule and we'll end up with a couple of inches of positive trail, so all should be good. I have no option but ...

Re: Circumventing the RidikulusRool Peter's Evo Chopper derake...

Wow that's a lot of work, well done on finding a solution.

Always pays to know about the 550mm rule before buying a bike.

Great pics too, as this will all be very relevant when we chop my Triumph frame to stretch it.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Spring loaded chain tensioner is now in. Really wished I had one of these on my first Triumph Chopper which had a 4' stretch hardtail, so an absolute must with this 6" stretch and 130 link chain this time. https://i.ibb.co/xCZF1cQ/Chain-Tensioner02.jpg https://i.ibb.co/tC5wRG5/Chain-Tensioner01.jpg

Re: 2019 BilletProof visited by a couple of cool choppers

I wonder if it could be the condenser? I had no end of dramas with them on my HD when I had it and went through heaps of them until I found a good one.

Re: Welder Certification

I asked the consulting Engineer who is overseeing my chopper project in WA if the welding on the frame had to be done by a certified welder, and he said no. As long as the person doing the work was well experienced with motorcycle frames, we provide detailed pictures of every step of the way, everyt...
