Chop larking about...

'Confuscius' chopper say, "never question vernier eyes".

Clive doing his very best fu Manchu impersonation..

Choppers been busy again..

Not being a man to sit on his laurels, (unless there's a cup of tea involved), chopper has created another stunning Austin mini sprint.
After extensive repair and replacement of the necessary panels on the body shell, his mini has been subjected to a drastic 3" chop and 3" section, and is now standing under 1 metre tall.
With raked rear pillars, a sectioned front grille, bonnet carb bulge, sectioned fuel tank, fully rebuilt A series motor, rebuilt transmission, all new adjustable suspension, nostalgic Cosmic wheels & tyres, and is now sporting it's fresh 2k paint job, of blue & orange.
Very reminiscent of the gulf race car paint jobs.
Chopper tackled the wiring himself with lots of assistance from his old mucker, Andy...And we all know how much chopper hates wiring systems!!
The interior requires fitting up but other than that, this killer mini sprint is all but done.
Another shining example of the grumpy buggers talents!! Nice one Clive. :)

Pings Kustom Trike

Here's a shots of the kustom trike Chopper is currently building for his nephew,Ping..
It's based around a fresh kustom frame, utilising the original Virago Forks,Wheel, Yokes, Bars and 1000cc V-twin motor all tied into a Reliant Robin Rear axle. Rear 15x10 wheels were produced for ping by Image Wheels.

Chopper has also wheeled a new aluminum tank for the trike to suit the lines of the frame a lil better than the OEM tank did.

Looks pretty fuckin awesome don'tcha think??!!??
