It s pretty hard to ride a bike without something to sit on so eventually you ll be faced with deciding on whether or not to make a custom saddle or resort to a store-bought thing to sit your ass on. Notice that I said saddle and not seat. In true Chopper parlance motorcycles don t actually have a seat as such, since those devices are usually only found on bicycles. Two wheeled motor-driven vehicles have saddles. There is huge difference between a seat and a saddle and after a couple thousand miles your back-end will begin to tell you about such differences. Unfortunately there are dozens of companies and individuals out there who still try to build seats for motorcycles since they don t know the difference between the two objects and such makers generally don t do much real riding.

It was a mine of information, on how to build Motorcycle frames, forks etc etc. There were also some free to dl files on building tube benders, tube notcher's, frame jigs, etc. Earlier this yr their site disappeared, I've tried to find it many times since with no luck, until tonight.
It seems their site was hacked, and lots of info lost. However they are slowly rebuilding the information. Under a new URL, so it maybe hard for people to find it, if looking for the old one. Thats a great site, or was. Though its no good for those of us in Aus because of our bloody ridiculous engineering laws. Its a great read. Robotstar5 , Dec 21, Messages: 18, Location: Birmingham.
He was building it for the US so had to comply with their standards, we have that many safety and angineering standards that must be met its a nightmare doing much more than simple custom work to any vehicle.

I have a VFR Trike to stick on that new table first, and finish off. Then I might get around to that. I've modified the front end, running a Ford Diff with independent rear suspension as per a post I did a while ago. You must log in or sign up to reply here.

The Chopper Builders Handbook Volume II
The primary objective of the Chopper Builders handbook is to provide basic information that will enable everyone to successfully build their own Chopper from scratch. We started adding a new series of articles to the site located in the 'Projects' section called the 'CBH Build Project'. I anticipate this to grow to around pages by the time the bike is finished. We'll cover a lot of ground in this area that hasn't been seen before and we'll update the pages as the work progresses and becomes more complex. We decided at the first of March to use Google Analytics on the new version of the site in order to find out if what we publish was actually being used by people. I had no idea how much information Google can pull together on the visitors to a site.
