Default New bike.

Sold my Streetbob and took this in part exchange. S&S Evo engine, Baker box, West Coast Choppers frame.





First thing that HAS to go is that fucking awful paintjob. Bright orange is worse than custard yellow.

The floor boards are going and so are the solid wheels.

I have some chrome alloy thick spoke jobbies to go on, and an Andrews cam, Hi Performance Mikuni carb, V&H Short Shot pipes. I will be keeping this one and having a play with it.

Got a couple more bikes to get rid of. A Ducati Monster 1000 IES and a Kawasaki Versys 650, if anybody is interested.

Chopper

Don't mind the orange paint or the purple frame, just not together.

I quite like the wheels though, less footery to clean than spokes.

Hey Chopper nice to see you back on here, as for the paint I'm with Grav on that one (Much as it pains me to say so) The bike itself is nice. Lookin' forward to seeing it around

Already got a buyer for the wheels mate. You are so right about the paint work. Makes me feel sick to look at it. I had to try very hard to see past the paint and look at what could be done with the bike.

Anybody want to buy the tanks and mudguards as they are? Happily swap for some new, bare metal ones.

That bike is starting to ring bells! I'm sure I've seen it in one of the mags somewhere... Maybe Bosun or Yoda's taken a photo of it somewhere and put them up on their websites at some point... It just looks vaguely familiar, that's all.

When the pics were first posted I thought I'd seen it at the Bulldog years ago, parked out back in 'Soweto' with a for sale sign on it ???

Orange and purple were standard Buell colours though so may not be that unusual.

Jees ye know that saying absence makes the heart grow fonder....damn have I missed those subtle inflections that readily emanate from Chops posts. The subtle nuances of the English language, the crisp cut and thrust of reasoned and well thought out debate.

Aaaaaah fucknuts has a generous aroma of lazy summer days on the lawn as we gently berate the baseball hatted shell suited mutants ....haw fucknuts as we gently chide our fellow bikers to get the teas in.

This should be adopted as a new rating ...new members join and they get the status of fucknuts ......

Does anybody know what comes after "Talk, Type, Breath. Talk, Type Breath...." and have they reached those dizzy heights. Could it be like "Posting God" or "Super Member" or such like....
