Corner in Sinners was upset when I told him what I had done.
He said things like you did must "stävjas" I dont know what that means but it doesnt sound good.
I started building a bike in my head.
Started with an old chopper frame I had laying in the barn. Hung it up on the wall and started collecting parts for the mock up.
My dad used the same tank on his chopper he had in the early 70´s. a friend of mine gave me an chrome oilbag. borrowed a right knuckle engine case and had some cans and heads for a mock up.
This was the start for the totally chromed chopper. added parts as I found them. a old crome tripple tree for risers a white bates , Lee clutch pedal and a repoop Triumph rear fender.
It started to find its self but still to less chrome.
I aslo changed the style on the exaust. made it narrower together.
Started with a borrowed VL chrome springer it made the bike look good.
I found a good old z bar.
More parts found its way, my way.
A old chrome rear wassel fender , white Beck grips to match the Bates saddle, white kick pedal and brake pad.
A set of chrome Superior pipes, the chrome -37 knucke camcover ,21 inch front wheel with an stepped hub just like i wanted it. And ofcourse an patina chrome VL Springer.
And the last missing main piece.
Made by my pal LeBeef. it was on a knucke Nicke svensson had I he let my buy it!
Now it starts to looke like an old chopper.
A fully chrome chopper needed something I had once the thing that I removed the chrome from!!!
I started searching for another frame. And I found one!! In Tennessee.
From an old chopper that used to have a knuckle as its heart.
some ripped the heart out and took the good parts and left the frame...for me!
A few weeks ago the frame arrived to Sweden. and it was PERFECT!
My plan Is to put one of my grandpa´s old glas eyes in it so my grandpa can keep an eye on me while im riding free.
The chassie is all there, at the moment Lindblom a good friend of mine is rebuilding my tranny and im waiting for Totte in Sinners to do the machining on my pan cases so I can add my 4½ stroker crank in it.
Here is a result that dreams might come alive If you just want something. Work really hard and you will get there!
They say , chrome wont take you home. Fuck that.
Chrome will bring me whereever I want!
