The Swedish Chopper is back

Good example is good to follow. By showing Yuri’s Swedish Chopper, the enthusiasm is back.

This is the bicycle part for customer Hans, consisting of a custom frame and a rear wheel. We will collect another Flow-Glide fork to length and a 23 inch front wheel and then Hans can go wild on the design!

Tillerbar handlebar

We continues for the Swedish Chopper with the handlebars. What should certainly not be missing is the Tillerbar, the angle and length are determined by the seating position.

The foot at the mounting on the triple trees and a rotated stabilizing bar are “finishing touches”!

De Zweedse Chopper

The real Swedish Chopper look is already starting to take hold. A sissybar has been created in true Swedish style and of course also useful for luggage during holiday trips.

The tank greatly determines the look, so we took the time to do this. Because an inch wider, narrower or shorter… it makes a world of difference!

Yuri Swedish Chopper

Time for an update on Yuri’s Swedish Chopper. The pulley and brake disc have been measured and just made. The wheel is aligned and the length of the belt is determined so that we know the position of the wheel.

The disc is behind the pullover to keep the view side of the Chopper as bare as possible, less is more! The next step is to determine the position of the caliper and shape the fender.

We will keep you informed about the progress!

Complete stainless steel wheels

For the Swedish project we are going to use an 18″ traditional multi-spoke rear wheel.

The front wheel is 23″ and the spokes are straight. The hub, spokes and rim are completely from stainless steel.

Zweedse Choppers

For the people who didn’t know yet, we grew up 40 years ago (we are so old 😉) with Swedish Choppers.

Through a single Swedish magazine, Ride and Glide, we were hooked. As a result, sleepless nights when thinking of a Chopper.

Typically, the wide tire (130 band was the widest tire at that time), and a 20 inch fork with degrees in the triple trees so that even with one hand, the chopper was easy to handle.

This style has been gone for a long time, but we were able to make a Home-made, one-off frame again.

To be continued!
