    First post but ello from wales.U.K.
    Here's where im at right now with my ratter. Any other members over here? :) my first motorised build but not new to the custom bike world :)
    Driven sprocket upgrade and a new air filter in the next couple of days. What does everyone think? Clocking high 30s mph on the flat :) running a 46t. 32t on the way.
    Cheers. Jake

    That is a lot of rake on the front fork. How does that affect the handling? TIA

    Handles well, im used to riding raked out lowriders and such so is pretty smooth for me :)

    likes like the forks from a 27" racer rather than the stock ones.


    may look raked, but follow the pivot line and trail looks just about normal...probably is normal.

    we tend to run much more vertical steering tubes these days compared to the old girls...and it is british, after all....

    They started off as bent raleigh chopper ones. Cut the ends off and raked them to almost 32" :)

    32t installed today and new filter. Great stuff but only tried out this evening. Takes an age to build up speed but very impressed with speed result :)

    cut and welded the left crank arm at an angle to leave clearance for exhaust, are there benefits from running exhaust up frame?

    I think if you run the muffler pipe up wheres the oil come out. And haveing the. Muffler behind you or not pointing at the ground makes it seem less noisey

    Get a cheap mig welder. And move the seat down. Looks better i think

    Why the cheap mig welder? My dad restores classic cars so no trouble there. Don't trust the seat much lower. Doesn't feel as good while riding plus there's some flex in extended post :)

    Great looking bike. How are you going to slip past the cops with it. I am in Belfast, do you have a source for spare parts. martinmclarnon@btinternet.com
