Re: Foot throttle?

So you've still got your rear brake foot controlled, but different controls further forward?

Re: Surprise run...

I remember seeing that Kwaka in the Amen frame for sale a couple years back on Gumtree, and regret it everyday that I didn't just spring for it.

Such a cool bike, and great to see it in these pics out and about

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Thanks guys, and you're both pretty much on the money with where I want to go to next. The position of the neck in terms of height from the ground and the angle of rake will need to remain pretty much where it is, or maybe a degree or so less rake just to make sure we absolutely 100% do come in just...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

I finally had some time to play in the shed today, and got stuck into the front end. After realising that with the front end bolted together in the +10 degrees rake position I was going to be well over the 550mm ADR rule (50mm too much), and end up with negative trail, I stripped the front end apart...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

What if you pull in the bottom to the zero rake position? That will put the front of the bike up a bit more, but will it fit the 550ridiculerule? If so, perhaps it's just a matter of extending the front down tube That's exactly what I'll be doing as the next step, setting the girder up in the zero ...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Well the rolling chassis is home for Christmas, and I think it looks awesome!! There's still a few minor jobs to completely finish the front end, but they can wait until next year and after an Engineer has inspected the roller and given me direction on how we achieve all the modification permits I n...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

Don't worry wheel choice is not locked in and finalizing what we're doing is a long way off. We're just throwing a tyre on this one so we can get it rolling, and use it as a base line. The front axle in this front end is only 1/2" at the moment, so I want to look at upgrading that to 3/4" to match t...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

TriNortchopz, we didn't end up threading any of those holes and rebuilt it back to the way it was from stock, although using new bronze bushes which required the holes in the links to be bored out, as the stock item is just steel meshing over steel. The front end is pretty much back together now, an...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

The front end is looking pretty close now. I just saw this picture from Tom and you can see all the new bushings and the freshly machine stainless nuts to hold all the linkages together, all ready for assembly. Hopefully I'll get a chance to go down and see this in person later this week. https://im...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

It looks like Tom is getting underway with the girder rebuild now, as I saw this picture appear on his Facebook page last week while I was away overseas on holiday. Looking forward to getting back down to the shop and see the progress. https://image.ibb.co/gZNuyV/45748920-2508112605872074-3938524360...
