    Might've been registered in here before. Can't remember - comes with being a retired bum, I guess. East Texas area, small town of Jefferson. Nice and quiet in the sticks just like it oughtta be. Started riding in 1973 on a '72 XLCH raked 7/8" (probably about 45 degrees) and 15 over tubes. Have owned only 5 bikes, excluding a handful of temps while rebuilding the main bike - 1972 XLCH chop, 1978 FLH 3 speed w/reverse, 1987 FLST, 2006 Fat Boy, 2007 XLN. Have the '87, '06, '07 now. The temps were '73 XLH, '84 XL, '72 XLH.

    Here for the reading and looking. Doing some work on the '87 Sloptail and figured I'd be able to pick up some good info.

    Noot noot new handle homeboys. I have everything to gain, nothing to contribute, and may even destroy a thing or two.
    I'm far from cool and totally unoriginal. I like motorcycles and my favorite to collect are the ones that don't run.
    I'm currently storing a few hondas, a few harleys, and a couple of vespas. Yeah, no shiz.
    Thanks for having me!

    Default Hello From Texas

    Hello to everyone. New to Chop Cult. Started on a 75 Shovel 35 years ago. Have bought sold and traded a few through the years . Just sold my 89 Springer and picked up a 76 FL. Looking forward to hanging out and checking out all the righteous scoots. Have already seen some bad ass swing arm chops that give me plenty of inspiration to get started on this 76.

    Hello:

    Long time ChopCult fan - though to be honest, never checked out the forums. I have registered before and there may be a repetitive intro.... Mostly the articles and social media, and store, etc. By way of short introduction my name is Timothy. I run a magazine with my wife The Ton. The Ton is a Pacific Northwest motorcycle and lifestyle magazine created by motorcycle, tattoo, and rock and roll enthusiasts huddled in the rainiest drenched stretches of highways in the world. We publish quarterly, and have just released issue 3. It features Mark Kirkland’s 3000 mile trip for El Diablo Run, Brett Turner’s Born Free, two of the wildest bikes featured at 1Moto, Cycle Monster, stories on the marijuana industry and much more... Anyway, if that sounds like your thing you can find it at http://thetonmag.com You can find us on instagram @thetonmag.

    I am currently riding a 2014 sportster, still with the swing arm set up. Not much other than that is stock. In the past I have ridden everything from vintage (though not very vintage then) dirt bikes, to 1960s Yamaha's, and even vespas. I'm game with most two wheel set ups, except for goldwings. Can't get with that.

    Hey fellas,

    Been riding Harley's since I was 14 (starting with an iron). I took a couple years off after a bad spill and a move to NYC. This past summer I decided to jump back on with a 1978 Shovel project. I didn't have much experience working on older bikes, so I used this forum A LOT. Decided that its about time I actually make an account and get engaged. So here I am. Looking forward to it.

    Hey everybody!
    Out of West Michigan here. Been riding for decades, but I just bought an '89 softail that I want to turn into a frisco chopper. I'm not much of a wrench, so I could learn a lot from this group. I've loved choppers since I was a kid. I'm finally going to try to make that dream come true!

    Hello! My name is Chase and I just "finished" chopping my '03 sporty. A friend and I actually transformed his 61 Panhead from about 10 cardboard boxes of parts into a rideable chopper, and then, chopped my sporty. We did this in about 1 month.

    New to this whole forum deal.... this has always been a great site to pass the time on so I figured why not join!? I live in Sidney BC and have a '13 sportster and a '81 Suzuki gs750 (now with an 1100). I do a little bit of drag racing at our local (384') track with the Suzuki and the sporty is my touring bike...Click image for larger version.
