A guy on viragotech started making the adapters. Its just a block off plate and I think a spacer/adapter to get the rotor on there. I think he was selling them for around 200-300 per kit, I can't remember off hand. Looks sick though if you plan on keeping stock virago trees.

No front shot, found this in pinhead lounge, 1939 Indian, art work done in the 60's. Left as is~
This is what hubby was originally going for but then saw the Arlen Ness bikes. He just saw this and drooled.

An update on his bike while I'm here, took it for a road test yesterday, it was breaking up badly on high rpm. Turns out that one of the intake boots to the head was not clamped on properly and blew out. He has new hose and new skinny clamps to hopefully seat the booted better. Has a mirror so all that's left is getting the carbs back on and reset them again and put a brace the carbs, he's afraid they will fall off since one side DID fall off in his hand, that's how he found the bad boot.
He's just so close now!

Fact is stranger than fiction.


Maybe it will be a series ?

I watched the episode last night where Jr. and Sr.seem to be slowly drifting back toward some sort of positive relationship but, I can help but wonder if the whole thing has been an act.

I'm not a bike person at all so, sorry for the dumb questions!

I love these old bike so with that being said. Is there a way to clone those frames/look from a modern frame or bike? I won't allow my self to have a bike because I'd (really) kill my self. But I don't think I would get to stupid on something like this.

So what bike or frame would you start with to clone one the older styles?

There's plenty of custom hardtail frames out there to start with to get that same look

Or you can make your own...

big fan of the long and lean look myself. I guess that's why I really like most of Jesse Rook's bikes.

I'm right there with you John. I've been a big fan of Rooks bikes for quite some time. I don't care for him much but his style is cool ad hell.

That's presumably why Southern Chopper only got a series or two. Everyone got on too well and the old hippy guy was far too laid back and skilled.

That's pretty much the formula for all of Discovery Channel's
shows now.

fishing, logging, crabbing, making guns or assembling bikes. if there's not a fight or altercation, they don't film it.

Don't watch any of that phony bull shit. It's hard enough just trying to find a little spare time to work on the cars.

$19,500 for the kit or $26,000 turn key complete.

Still cheaper than those choppers that were being sold to all those suckers a couple years ago.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have what I think is a Harley Sprint or Rapido motor but I don't know any more about it. It has the # 100474 stamped in the underside of the case but I cant find anything. Here are 2 pics of it. I really have no use for it and want to sell it but need info on it. Thanks
