wow bare metal, so a good quality primer first? hey since is chopper style was just discussing choppers saturday, do you mainly turn by just turning the wheel with no leaning?

I don't think those stretched out choppers turn...you just ride them 'til you come back 'round the other side... :)

yep @zag i do believe that back tire is a cage tire.

guess would really work if my thoughts were correct on not leaning into turns.

RE: Last pics before I tear it down for Paint
Yes you can still lean a chopper, and the car tire. Well documented on the car tire, search "dark siding". Goldwing guys have been doing it for years. And with the springer the trail can be dialed back in to a reasonable level, and its actually going to be quite rideable for as big as it looks.
Its a 205/70r15 car tire on a honda civic rim, with a custom hub.

Stretched and raked out bikes ride just fine as long as you use them how they're designed. My other bike is much less reasonable, and thrown together ina hurry, and I can still dodge traffic like a scooter at speed.

Looks like it was made from leftover scrap metal.

It does kind of chuckle when guys call it ugly that in another thread "thanked" me for the pics, and commented on the things they like.........To each there own I guess.

Good thing it wasnt built for you guys, I'm just sharing..........We cant all ride stockers ;)

RE: Last pics before I tear it down for Paint
I think the "ugly" comments were meant mostly in jest. I'm sure it will be cool once it's painted, it's just that without the paint it looks a little rough, ya know? Once you clean up the welds and grinds and whatnot and shoot it with paint it will probably get a different type of comment. We tend to be smart @$$35 around here... :)

Oh...and my first thought when you first posted the thread was, "before you tear it down for paint???" But I wasn't sure if you'd realize that it was in jest so I refrained from making the comment.
