Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

If you were trying to copy a "chopper" then the lines are all wrong. You'd want to cut the seat post way down and get the seat a lot lower. The handle bars should be above your waist and whole a lot. I like the front fork raking (that part is okay). The position that you'd be in to ride it defeats the whole purpose of a chopper, you want to sit back into a chopper. This one has the lines of a drag strip bike where you're sitting in "crotch rocket" position.

I've built my share of and owned choppers in my day (the real big ones) so this is something I know about.

Hey Jeff how about some more pointers? what else should i do?

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

Understand, I'm not picking on what you've done, it looks good, it's just more like the lines of a 1/4 mile racer rather than a chopper. If you wanted to get more of the "chopper-lines" you'd need to raise the handle bars. Get an extension and either fit it with "ape hangers" or a longer extension with a T-bar. Figure out a way of mounting foot pegs up front of the engine and get a seat with a back rest or "sissy bar".

Those jean short sweat pants got to go dude!

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

And keep Tyler off of it!

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

I like the how you did your switches.

Jeff, we were not trying to make a chopper. the tripple tree plate broke off during a ride and caused the forks to bend. the rider was ejected. i or tyler are not trying to make a chopper, but if we ever do we would go to you first.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

I was wondering how you got the forks like that.

HAHA,

WTF happened to cause that?

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

The crown nut rattled off, and then the fork nuts rattled off, and then the forks broke apart at high speeds and Tyler crashed.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

Jesus. Hope Tyler is ok. How did he not notice he was missing the fork nuts?

He noticed after he crashed, and we dragged him and the bike off tfhe road.

Oh, well then that sucks doesn't it?

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

how bad is the lower triple tree, steel is pretty tensile. if you get the top back on, and use locktight this time around, forks may be salvageable.

if it bent back and fourth multiple times, i'd just go with a whole new headset.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

so you really thought that wouldnt happen? the top plate provides all your forks' rigidity. i would have put $100,000 down that the first time somebody rode this, they were going to crash.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

Damn dude. Patch it up with black label cans.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

We did NOT try to ride it like this. The headset fell apart during a ride. These forks are trash. noone is going to try to reuse them. They got fucked.

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

Haha yes! THANKS FOR TEH TIPPPPZ GUISE!!! It was alot of fun trying to turn my bike into a chopper mid ride, but i think ill keep the sweatpants and just get a new fork

Re: Custom Chopper Blonco V1

It's pretty fucking obvious those forks are bent did you really think that was on purpose?

That frame is bad ass looking, I like the color.
