I thought that you could only go with 4.25" wheels without the taller jugs.?. I've been wrong before.

Re: shovelhead shocks "?" is 12" too low?

I didn't want to start a new thread for such a trivial question. After reading this thread it makes me wonder what is this going to be like.

Let's face it, I'm no lightweight. I'm almost 200lbs....

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...
