    Default Other forum with more traffic?

    I know it's an odd question, and I still love this place, but is there another like-minded forum elsewhere that gets a little more foot traffic? For example, I thought for sure some folks in here would be talking about Born Free this year, but really there's nothing... Any help?

    Yeah, maybe the chopper craze is dying out. They say "stock" bikes are the new choppers. Maybe someone should start a cool web place called "Stock Cult".

    Ha! I knew I'd likely get this type of response, but really, I feel like this place used to be a lot more hoppin'. I didn't know if something else had come to the forefront and my old ass just didn't know. Shit, I just started using Reddit last year.

    This place killed itself.

    it's a real bummer but it was self inflicted and well earned.

    How so? I haven't been around much myself. And where's everyone going to now?

    It's riding season and people are out enjoying it. There are meets to attend and things to do.

    If there were reason to start a Born Free thread someone would do so.

    Come to think of it, this place is deader than disco...along with the other similar sites I peruse...threads will hang for DAYS with zero interest.

    I wish there was a sportster filter and maybe a stock dyna with sissybar filter... I just need to not see that shit sorry if I sound like a dick but I am. I can't take another "remove suspension from perfectly good girls bike" and downgrade it.



    But it is CHOP Cult so I guess it's to be expected....just..why not start with something that was a rigid design from the get go?? Frames seem plentiful...whatever...and a 2015 dyna with spiderweb sissybar and 20" T bars.....I could use a block button for that shit too...boy am I a douche.....let me have it tell me I'm a judgemental fucktard...or maybe possibly I possibly have people who agree??? Even checkbook chopper guys have standards ya know...

    There is a place just for you Q it's called the Cantina..... That's where all the cool unicorn/ewok guys started to get away from the dull CC...... You will fit right in over there....

    ugh, i wish.
    i thought that 20 years ago before the new explosion of choppers w/ the new crop of shows on discovery channel..the jesse james shows were ok. and the biker build off shows were decent, but the tutles were intolerable. but that's what sold i guess.
    than about 10 years ago w/ the housing bubble and the great ressesion nobody had any money and guys w/ big/bad/dog/balloon tire choppers couldnt sell their shit for half what they paid. and i dont blame 'em, but no one wants that gay shit.

    are choppers dead? doughtful. hopefully its just taking a nap for now.
    i'm not a economist but i do understand supply & demand.
    just like orig parts from the pre 70s there is only a limited supply, but to restorers there is a big demand. there are always restorers.
    as to orig aftermarket chopper parts? yes there is still a limited supply, but the demand(group of potential buyers) may wax or wane.
    i wish choppers were dead, so the american pickers factor wasnt an issue and prices would go back to about 2004.
    oh, well. that aint happenin'

    fuck it. i've drank to much tonight, so i'll bitch about choppers more.
    i love and will only ride choppers, but......
    i biuld and ride what i like 'cause thats what i do, but i hate the attention from dorks or strangers. a thumbs up is cool, but wanting to talk to me about my bike is usually gay.
    i forgot who said it(i think it was snow) "dont bro me if you know me"
    i'm not a dick. i just wanna do my own thing and be left alone

    sorry, i got a bit off topic.
    forums w/ heavy traffic? yeah there are some.
    cool chopper forums w/ heavy traffic? i dunno? there were a few.
    JJ was a heavy hitter for years w/ pretty much anyone in the know was on board.
    there was a time the theads moved as quickly as the hamb.
    than something happened(no jap bikes) and bildozer? decided to start his own site for chopper freaks only.
    that was chop cult.
    was a great idea at the time. got a lot of people talking(still does).
    chop cult was hevily trafficed until... they sold the forum and that whole show class/dusty ordeal.
    people leave forums for whatever personal reasons.

    I saw some fuzzy pics somewhere..I kinda forget...

    If my bike looks similar to yours it's just Chopular coincidence...good taste is timeless....

    So, waddya think of my new turd??? it's lowdown...light, skinny and dirty.....like me!! hahahaha seems a shame to put my pristine brand spankin freshly rebuilt Pan motor in it......I'm gonna wait for something else.....

    I just need a motor, dirty old half moon boards, a beat up primary and some gas.
