Guess who now has a new chopper (some assembly required)?
This is a LONG term project: little bits done as I can afford to and have time. But I figured I would document it on here.
The final plan is for a celtic themed bike. The origin of that concept was this:
The horse head? That'll be the handle of the shift knob: this is going to be a right side suicide shift. That means I can keep the hand clutch up on the bars (so emergency reactions will remain the same for this bike)
And here's the frame. Was chopped in a different manner: they left the neck alone. Instead, they cut the downtubes, and welded in spacers (you can see the lines if you look REAL close)
The engine is a '76 Sporty. NOT complete, unfortunately: that's part of the reason it's gonna be a long term project
Some of the work that needs to be done? Building a girder front end. Fabricate the shift linkage. Get the engine rebuilt (which is what I'm working on first).
Bags are going to be made custom: more on those when I actually get to that point
As I get things done, I'll post updates
