    But a chopper has a lot of rake. Rats,Bobbers,and Brats do not.

    One of the level 3 machining students banded these out for me this week. Replacing mine I previously installed,and the other set, I may use for lower fender mounts. Or my next build (xs760 with david bird hardtail)

    Today was productive.

    -Added the other mount on the swing arm (on the right.) Nothing fancy, just wanted it to match the mount on the left (chain guard mounting hole.)

    -Cut out the gussets. The plan is cut out some slick ones on the plasma c&c, and weld in.

    Back to polishing the reader hub and rim!

    No links - you're a big boy and can use a search function... but will throw ya' a couple ideas to search for. 1970's Honda Z50's & CT70's used an internal throttle, as did old H-D bikes.

    Harley's used 1" bars, but I suspect the Hondas used 7/8".

    Thanks, I ran across that on this site as well. And a few great ideas off Instagram. Shouldn't have any issues once I get the shop time!

    Be careful with the sanding! Some of these frames were only 1/16" thickness.
    I would not sand if epoxy stripper is available.

    In the United States a chopper is a long bike with a lot of rake. Rake does matter.

    I played in a fair amount of bead to keep touching the frame to a min. Great tip, Thx

    As well, most of my sanding is with a 2" scotch brite pad on air grinder. Much easier to control
