It's new project time via a Big Wheel chopper for a friend.Anyway specs are 18x8.5 rear rim with a 250x40 series tyre,26x2.5 front,billet springer front end and a custom chopper style frame out of 40nb main tubes and 25nb rear tubes.

Will have a custom sprung seat and disc's front and rear with either the 19" chopper bars on it ATM or some custom low units.The apes are a full 1360mm to the top of the bars from the ground...

Pics so far...

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

Hey Rob, is that a bit of 75mm box under the frame for your height? How do you go with only 3" of clearance, does she bottom out alot or is it cool. I set mine at 100 but ive allowed room in the crank circumference so i can drop it more.

Don't know if it bottoms out it's not going yet...I build lowriders not high riders.Plus the wheelbase is short enough to not cause any real issues and besides if you don't scrape em your not trying...LOL

Ok, mines 2050mm axle to axle and its got a long bottom rail so its not going to go over curbs and speed humps too well.
