Norton chopper pics

Hey everyone, this site is pretty cool. I hope you like the chopper i'm building. I took a norton engine and decided to make a custom bike mostly old school style.

I just finished building this,

it's ready for wiring and the pipes.

Hope you guys don't mind bikes you can't build with a Custom Chrome Catalog.

Good looking bike, I like the lines and the black with the pinstriping on the tank. Used to be another guy on here a long time ago who was building a norton from FL I think??

Slammed-Norton 08-13-2004 08:43 PM

that might of been me, I was on here awhile ago and i let my mouth run and got into a fight with some people... So i left until i was done being immature.. I'm sorry about that. I took some anger management courses and im back to my nice, normal self. anyways thanks for looking :)

Hey, thats cool. That's great you finished building your bike and now you get to enjoy riding it!!

Slammed-Norton 08-13-2004 09:06 PM

yeah, as soon as i can get it wired I'll need to start practicing with the right hand jockey shift, not stalling it, and kick starting it quickly for when i stall it in traffic!!! LOL

So, I guess its got a left hand throttle, right? What side is the clutch? More power to ya for that setup man!

yeah, left hand throttle.

and i put the clutch lever ON the jockey shift. why bother making all the linkages for a suicide shifter?

here is another pic.

we put a von Dutch eyeball on the fron of tank.

Hey Slammed-Norton, welcome back man. I recognized that beast right off. Don't think there's any other Norton chops with blue suicide jockey shifts running around! The bike has come a long way and it's looking bad ass! Glad to see you made it back...

Your scoot looks really nice! Brings back the good ol' days of riding with my dad on his chopped 68 BSA. It really looks like it would be a blast to ride around. I like thumbing through the HORSE magazine and seeing the chops powered by something other than the V-twins(not that I have anything against the V-twins). Congrats on the awesome progress you have made and look forward to more pics.

Slammed-Norton 08-13-2004 10:08 PM

hey, thanks man.

glad to be here. Hammer from the Horse wants me to get it running so i can get pictures of me riding it and shit...

hopefully we can make it by the october issue.

how does the clutch work on the jockey? never heard of that before.

/me slaps his forehead, realizing how its done even as he is posting.

duh, same as if it was with the left hand up on the bars and a clutch lever. right? well anways, thats nice. im mad with jealousy. you gave me some good ideas for when i change over to a suicide. i was going to go with a left foreward clutch and left sided suicide, with the rear brake at my right hand and a right hand throttle. but with the clutch on the shifter, i can just keep the rear brake down by my right foot and free up my handlebars from any levers at all. righteous. thanks bro.

edit : damn, im really tired. i just saw you basicly did the same thing in your foto's. very swifty. /me sighs and then scampers off to bed.

works gonna hurt tomorrow.
