Long, colorful and real fun! More like a dream than reality. But someday I'm going to build one with a souped up KHK mill - maybe I'll even try to swipe Cal Rayborns old KRTT one. Heard it's real cheap... And then I usually wake up and it's monday morning...

Or just downright funny? I'm refering to the grin on Paul Juniors face. Anyways its good to see how the web and bloggers caught on and that right should be right. And now it seems to be!
Just for the rercord - there is some controversy over the word repentful... the question is if it is a real word. I dont giva a hoot because I think remorseful isn't as biblical.
I did! Mr Chopper sold me the first BT Flathead I ever owned. It ran like crap when I tried it in Strängnäs after a 4.5 hour drive from home. The linkert was way out of whack, timing was of and the clutch (råttfällan) was basically unoperable (strange word there...). But I bought it anyway and it ran great after some work and friendly assistance from smart and able buddies. And since then Flatheads are in a leauge of their own to me. They aren't cooler, faster, better or anything like that, compared to OHV, just different in the best of ways!
Matte is a legendary Chopper righteous guy and totally great to meet and talk to. Which was the case at Hönö saturday night, when Pontus and all in the island-connection put on a great party. Thanks guys and come january we'll meet up at our place for the mid-winter barbeque!

Sibbans flattie chop gave me the spirit of chop chop. Hap Jones gave me the tank. Two great finnish brothers gave me aluminum heads in the form of iron ones. And Rickard gave me a rigidized Duo frame and finally good ole Joe the magneto.
In no instances except Sibbans inspiration has anyone really given anything - gave just sounded better in the above paragraph. It has all been paid for in full. Except Sibbans gas cap... which is a real bad concience issue for me... And which color is the color of guilt?
In short - I'm starting to feel inspired and want to get to work!

The dreary season is upon us. We light candles and pop pop corn to kid ourselves that we like it, but with no success. We might even put a nice Linkert DC on a buddy seat piedestal and admire it for a while and then regress into autumn apathy.
The nice brass choke part Benny Å made. I just bought it with the intention of running it on... well I dont give a flying...
Just kidding I do give a fudge and I think it's going on the Duoglide eventually or if I get another one it might make a fresh double trouble set up for the extra big flattie thats going in the rigid conversion Duo frame.
I've seen the light and it's Sibbans flattie chop! So we'll make it through the dark wet cold times ahead!

or Esox Lucius by our honorary Sidfläsk MC member in the south of Stockholm. Former World Champion Stellan Egeland. This guy has turned the bike building world upside down twice! First with this never-seen-before hot rod bike. And then two years later with the Hulster 8 valve. It's an amazing feat that probably wont bee seen or heard of again!
Picture is from Mälaren Runt this summer right before we got drunk enough to start up alco-revving.
Bengans 45" Wilma in the background. Se purrs real sweet to. But Bengan is mature and doesnt believe in alco-revving.

I want to lace a sportsterdrum into a KH original Harley 18" rim but haven't found out what length spokes I should have. Seems like they were onlu laced into 19" and later on 21" rims. I guess I could measure and make a educated guess, but I'd just rather ask and hope that someone might answer...
And probably find out that I'm basically alone in this little introvert part of the chopper blogosphere...
HelllloooOOO... is anybody outthERE????

He's aiming for 40 hp from this little bugger. Let's see how close he'l l get.

Keep It Simple Stupid... is one of the best advices there is - and formulated in a clever way!
Man, that's a sweet ride. To the point and expressive as hell just because it's so dang simple. Ther's no stupid on whoever put this ride together - just tons of class and confidence!
This made my otherwise crappy evening real good.I'm at work trying to catch up on the workload. I should be home with my wife and kids or in the garage...

The muppet show's Paulie junior been caught steeelin' He's gone from Cheif designer of Spider web and space shuttle hogs to Theif designer of Falcon Motorcycles... Dont know which is best?
Anyways I think I heard that the chopper related blogosphere rage caught little Paulie in the ear so ferociously he's deleted all images of him sportin' Falcon property.
Maybe him an dad senior are bustin up some doors, thrashin a pickup or two or just screamin their heads of in OCC rage.
But I dont give a fuck... or it might make some good TV!

Double curcuit braker but with a manual advance. Real deal single fire technology, or? Who says the MoCo moved slowly?
But, it makes me a bit worried that 65 and later they move back to single contact point breaker but with automatic advance... So should I deduct that the twin system wasn't really all that great...
Please help me out here guys! I'm struggling as it is...
