So update on the chopper.
Unfortunately made no progress last week or over the weekend, actually I managed to order a rear fender that’s about it. .
Frame is more or less ready to weld up. No doubt I’ll go over everything another 3 times before I start welding. Then the next thing I think I’m going to do is pull the frame back out the jig.. again.. put the motor back in again... and now that I can actually mount the rear wheel make sure that the mounts are in the right spot and the front and rear sprocket are parallel/inline, and as I write this I realise I need to get a new rear rim cause I am going to ditch the old rear drum brake cause it’s useless.
Once that’s done I’ll know my exact ground clearance and can make a start on the springer front end with the correct rake and trail to suit. (if I can ever find some springs and hardware that isn’t gonna cost me $500 to get to Australia 🤦🏻♂️) Now I realise I went way off topic of what I was going to talk about. This Laser. Or any Laser.. is an awesome tool for fabrication. When I originally bought this from @totaltoolsaustralia I got the next to cheapest one, think it was ~$100 maybe. self levelling 2 beam laser with really only one idea of what I was going to use it for and have since came up with 30+ things I use it for that you just wouldn’t be able to do without it. This one in particular wouldn’t be great for outdoors the laser isn’t quite bright enough, the green beam ones I have seen would be better suited to that kind of work. Any way super handy 👍
