Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

No we haven't thought about the rake and stretch required for this front end yet. We'll get it sitting on the ground and rolling first, then we'll be able to take 100% accurate measurements of what we have, and then determine what we think we need to do. Then I can start to talking to an Engineer...

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

We have some progress! Tom Sharman at Sideshow Cycles is transforming my pile of parts into a roller at the moment, and it's looking real slick so far.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

It's looking very good! That back wheel is nice.Maybe the rear axle slots in that hardtail are for their axle plates to fit several different applications - part of production. I'm runnin' a long P&P girder on my Norton 850 rigid chop and never had a problem with the headlight experiencing any prob...

Re: Soaking night... by chopper of course...

Just curious Prof, what size tyre are you running up front? Looks like a tight fit in that front end.

Pain with most girders is light cannot be mounted anywhere but on the girder and collects all the road shocks as a result.

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

It's been a long time since an update but that's because the road to getting hold of a rear wheel has been a very long one. It was 6 months ago that I was offered a spool hub drum brake rear wheel for a unit triumph from someone in Texas via Instagram, which I jumped at. But I only just today picked...
