    Ok Guys its been a while but Im back. Built a bike called monster whizzer last spring and Im happy to say the thing runs perfect. I have had no problems at all. Anyway, found an interesting buy on craigs list the other day close to home. Found a Triumph chopper frame and an 81 xs650 Yamaha motor, also 5 boxes of chopper parts. This thing is low and nasty with tons of serious potential. Have checked all the electrical and the motor has good compression. Have purchased tank, 1" bars, shorter risers, and waiting for rear fender. Sandblasted frame and am in the process of grinding off all the mounting tabs. Have listed a pic of the bike I would like to emulate.

    Great score.

    Those are usually referred to as being in a "basket", rather than "box". Lots of great choppers built from "basket cases". Mostly from guys who took 'em apart then lost interest.

    But we don't do that, do we? :cool:

    Hey you know your bikes!!! Ya, to bad she marked her spot when ever parked and smoked like Betty Davis. Other than that I enjoyed the experience of re-wiring and bolting on the bling. This next Frankenchopper demands a tittle more sweat and thought. Thanks for the ata boy, guna need it!
