Chopper Frame and Front End

#1

Post by WillPhelps52 » Sat Feb 16, 2019 8:15 pm

This is a Paughco chopper frame and a 9" over springer front end.

The frame was prepped for wiring, moulded and painted.
Includes sportster tank with gas cap and petcock.
Includes under tank LED lights.
Includes rear fender
Includes sissy bar
Includes IN FRAME WIRES.
Includes Headlight, since it's already wired though the frame.
Includes ignition switch.

A good deal at $4,500.

The bike was just finished in July of 2018. It only has a few test ride miles on it. The picture below is the complete bike, but remember, this sale is just for the frame, front end and parts explicitly listed above.

I will accept offers for the complete rolling chassis, which is the entire bike WITHOUT the engine, trans and clutch.

Price dropped to $4,000.

Includes:

> Freshly moulded, painted and internal wired Paughco hardtail frame with MSO
> Paughco 9" over springer front end.
> Headlight (already wired in)
> Handlebars (but not controls... already wired)

Will consider offers on complete rolling chassis, but that's no longer my primary objective.

I had the Engine and Trans rebuilt by Steve McBath in NJ. He was the technical editor for one of the bike magazines up north.

I did the mockup, including making all the wheel spacers, oil tank bracket and few other parts.

A shop here in NC (Morton's) did the finish welds, ran the internal wiring, did the molding, paint and final assembly.

I wonder, between the seat, handlebars and springer, how's that puppy to ride?

I'm a short fellow ... 5' 5" .. and I built it for my height. That said... when the bike was finished and actually rode it, even though the seat springs worked pretty good, I found my but slipping off the back of the seat when I hit a larger bump. So I put a bigger seat on it when I rode the 50 test miles. Much better. A taller rider my want to put the seat in a position that fits them.

The springer front end is fine... no bad bounce.
