Nice. Does anyone actually ride on the rear pillion?

Rear tire is 180/70-15 on a custom wheel made from a 6" wide car rim.

Riding on the rear pillion is possible, although somewhat firm.

Hi Swedishmeatball,

This looks very well balanced to my eye. One of the best Jap chops Iíve seen in long time. Is there any possibility you could share with me the general dimensions of the frame? I would like to build one with the parts I have laying around.

Thanx!

Hello KZ

Sorry to have kept you waiting. Regarding the dimensions of my chopper I have taken some measurements and it goes as follows:
- Steering angle (rake) : 42 degrees
- Wheelbase: 1760 mm ( 69" )
- Fork length (from wheel axle to bottom of triple tree) : 630 mm ( 25" )
- downtube length (top of steering head to bottom of frame) : 750 mm ( 30" )
-Backbone length ( from steering head to rear axle ) 1300 mm ( 51" )
- Front wheel : 2.75 x 18
- Rear wheel 180/70-15

Hope this is of any help. Please let me know if yo want more info, on my bike or chopper building in general.

Awesome Chop



Us Old Skool Z1 owners gotta stick together....I love seeing a "finished" old school chop....Mine is almost to the point where its going to be ridable if I could find some forward controls for it....

Nice Chop...keep up the good work....
