    hi from byron bay,Australia, i just joined this site , looks great. im about to start my second build on a nice chopper frame i got hold of for $30, this is it new.
    im hoping to bugger the electric hub off (its stuffed)and stick some gears on the back to run the sbp shift kit through. only problem is the drop outs are 183mm wide and im not sure if the axle on the standard ooc chopper 20x4.25 is wide enuff.can someone thats got one of these fatty tires tell me the axle length?
    cheers .

    Welcome to the forum. I'm afraid that I'm chopper illiterate.
