Kawasaki 1500 chopper

This is a pic of my 1500 kawasaki chopper. It has a DNA rigid frame.
6 up 4 out, 42 degrees of rake.
Radiator behind the engine.
Converted to chain drive.

Getting rid of 50 lbs. of driveshaft components makes a big difference in performance. Just the rear drive unit weighed 30lbs.,.

A good chopper starts with a good frame. Check out these guys.

I am really impressed by the workmanship. WOW.
And they don't just look like a bunch of parts thrown together.
I like the transistions between the parts.

99 Marauder/ 76 KZ900 engine
Built by me for less than 50 dollars so far. Still have a few things I need to do to it. This is the original cheap guys bobber. I'd always wanted to build a bobber and never have enough money, so I figured I'd make do with what I had laying around.

Here is one of the metrics I'm working on, So far all it's has done is a reupholstered seat, home made pipes, That stell need chroming done too, and a silver base squerted on.
It's a Yamaha XJ700 Maxima, Thinking about a slight rake, and 2 inch extended tubes lator.
