Hey Guy's a friend was after a bike for pub rides and general cruises when the need arises and asked for a chopper of course.Been in Darwin he gets little say in what happens plus he's a mate so he gets less again...LOL

Anyway I'm making a oval tubed radius curved chopper again of Kendal Johnson inspiration with plenty of sheet metal accents and a big and little combo as usual.
A single brake 24" rim on a tripple tree front end with a 20x4.25 rear on a full custom oval tube frame.I'll make some bars for it yet and add the rear axle mount after I decide on a design for it.

Mate, I gotta tell 'ya', I've been looking at your bike's for a bit and I have to say that since my bro told me and showed me the bikes that you made for him, I was inspired!
Then he showed me the bikes in person and then took me for a ride along the beachfront for about 6 km's, ( I was on his missus' bike) I was not only impressed but would like one day to own my own, I had a great day and they (the bikes) turned a few heads, keep up the good work, Bye the way my brother is Staids and his missus name is Carlie.

Some say we are extreme and obsessed but we know the truth, and the truth is, they are mediocre and lack passion.

It's rollin,I got the axle mount tacked in place but the plate needs trimming up to suit.Still it's sits well and feels good but the bars will be a trial and error thing I feel along with the seat and if I make something or buy a seat for it.
