    I does make those kinda bits, by order. Working on a parts series for choppers at moment - fender bungs, frame bungs, tank bungs, grips, pegs.

    I like the colors on that one, not so keen on the raked out shape though...

    It's not the rake that'll be the problem on that. It's the trail.

    suppose with that set up you need the axle central to the fork leg..... but do many of these bobber/chopper bikes get ridden much?
    I've been on one run with a hardtail Yamaha and from behind it did not look like an enjoyable ride .....maybe SH 22 was not ideal for it.

    If I didn't have a messed up right arm and the bobber wasn't a 250, I'd ride it more. Maybe. Depends if the suicide shifter is easier with two functioning arms. But I've ridden it to work, and to the local weekend market.

    It's something different eh? I love it.
    I'd post pics of my own bikes, because I do them however I want, but that'd be wanky.

    A girlfriend once asked " Why is it you seem to prefer to race, than spend time with me ?"
    The answer was simple ! "I'll prolly get bored with racing too, once i've nailed it !"

    Bowls can wait !
