metal fatigue, be careful out there!


  1. In the 1970, during the era's chopper craze, many manufacturers of extended front fork added the disclaimer 'for show use only'. The bike here looks like a new build (late H-D Blockhead engine), but the it could've been stuffed in an old frame.

    Sweden banned long forks for a brief period, until the local builders got their act together, and provided documentation that choppers built with proper materials and correct rake and trail handled just fine.

    End of chopper nerd lesson.

    1. end of lesson... ha! You add info to my limited knowledge, and that is ALWAYS welcome!
