Re: Bicycle brakes on choppers

I've thought about this too. It cannot be because of heat dissipation. Brake fluid isn't really flowing, recirculating. Can somebody prove the juice in the reservoir ever migrates to the caliper? How...

Re: let's talk seats for bit

Tough to say for sure. Your bike is a nice rider but a chopper it ain't so a KnQ wouldn't sit right. The only other seats I have personally seen are really thick, chunky. Three pogo might be your...

Re: Just shook hands on a 1952 HD pan chopper

Re: Motorcycle VIN inspections

Re: '71 H-D scrap pile chop build

Natty Ice Light, better than pbr. Ha ha

How will you attach, fasten the backside of that sporty tank? I like its stance on the frame. It's just hard to see if it straddles the frame or if you will...

Nice lines, I love that skinny chop look. Nothing frivolous to get in your way.

Re: 33and 36 crankcase numbers
