The test rounds have been driven again, so the chopper can go to the customer. A model with a long fork, low and down, is described as a Swedish model. Jaap wanted such a long front fork that gives you a Swedish chopper feeling.
The large capacity tank and the softail frame do not belong to this style, but make the chopper unique and completely according to the customer’s wishes. Many kilometers will be driven with it, so the comfortable sitting position is a bonus!
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!
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.
