    I have a 77 ironhead chopper, electric start only that needs a battery and i'm struggling to find concise requirements for the bike. the original builder also made a stupid small battery tray so that's making it even harder to find something that will work. so far my understanding is that the...

    Many disagree with this decision, but... a mere six months after my chopper was finished, I am going to re-do it. It's not that I like wasting money, I have just changed my mind. That happens with A.D.D. In order to register my '57 in North Carolina, I had to hand in my New Jersey title. I...

    My chopper is almost complete. Engine break-in will be critical, so I was going to add a bicycle speedometer just to keep track of the initial miles on the bike for that all important first oil change and adjustments. Has anyone ever used one of those on a motorcycle before? Are they accurate...

    Wait?! What!? A long bike from Angry Monkey Motorcycles? Say it isn't so! Yep, it is for real, and it is also a "unit" bike to boot. This client build has been started for over a year but because of frame delays, outside of my realm of control, it is only now starting in earnest. The plan is...

    CityGlenwood SpringsStateCOPrice300I picked up this set of matching cases for my ironhead project that is being back burnered. Overall they are in pretty good shape with the two repairs show. One to a stripped tranny door hole and the other the rear motor mount. Both need a lil work before assembly.
