240 Rigid Frame Chopper
240mm Rear Tire

I ordered a set of frame plans and it was easy to understand and follow.

It was a RIGID plan for a 240mm rear tire.

I liked having a set of plans as it saved a lot of time not having to figure every single thing.

Also since it was based on a Harley Davidson it made buying other parts easier.

When I put the rear axle in the frame it was long enough because I stuck to the plan. There were no problems.

I had confidence in the steering neck because it was a proven design.

When I went to register it at the CHP office and get the special tag, I took my frame plan with me and although they did not ask me for it, I had confidence because I had a drawing that looked professional. When I sold the bike to build another, I had confidence because I could inform the buyer that I had used a proven professional plan to build the frame.

Trail Comment
by: Anonymous

With 42º rake and DNA forks the trail is acceptable.
No worry about a speed wobble.
Steering is a little harder than a stock bike but not much.

If you wanted you could have custom rockers made that are just a little longer and reduce the trail even more.
See Bitter End Choppers.

practicing the art
by: motopeli

when i was growing up stoned on gasoline and in love with the bike next door i would take three bus's and walk across town to window shop the honda dealer. every time i attempted conversation i was educated by intimidation.granted i had memorized some brochures , those i had down cold , but i was generally clueless. i built my first race bike in 1971.i had long travel suspension 6in frt. more than 4 in the rear , 21in.frt wheel,plastic fenders... i was mechanic for the triumph dealer at 16,service manager at the oldest (first)HONDA dealer east the mississippi by 19. ok i've run on enough,but i think i have earned the right... to ask DON DID YOU GET THE TRAIL RIGHT ! OMG! . DON you have my respect.that type of skill is why i always listen ,when it is talent i lack. i still would like to punch that asshole from the honda dealer in the face though.
