THIS IS A PROJECT I STARTED BACK IN MAY OF THIS YEAR!!!
I bought this back in May of this year, but there was a few little things that I didn’t really like, so I knew that they’d be getting changed etc!! 😆 When first got it, I weren’t so keen on how it rode!
So I’ve ridden it the once, and that was when I bought it, and ever since then it’s not moved! I’ve custom made a s/steel exhaust system for it, It’s had 2 new tyres on it and it’s still got plenty of Mot left on it! The chopper is a one off custom built bike, it’s a goose necked hard tailed frame with some very nice modifications done to it!!! And it’s aptly named aswell!! The Devil Rides Out and when I’ve finished with it, you’d think that the devil did own it!! 😆 SO I THINK IT’S ABOUT TIME THAT I STARTED TO PUT SOME EFFORT BACK INTO IT! I DID START TO MAKE A CUSTOM ONE-OFF S/STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM FOR IT, BECAUSE THE ONE IT HAD ON IT WHEN I BOUGHT IT WAS HORRIBLE!! AND NOT JUST LOOKING WISE NEITHER!! 🙂 IF YOU LEANED IT EVER SO SLIGHTLY TO EITHER SIDE THEN THE CENTRE SECTION ON IT WOULD HIT THE THE ROAD ETC!! AND I NEARLY LOST IT WHEN I FIRST STARTED TO RIDE IT BACK, CAUGHT ME OUT UNAWARE, BUT IT NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO DO IT AGAIN!!!! 🙂 SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MY OWN AS I HAD SOME S/STEEL TUBING ETC KNOCKING AROUND! THE DOWNPIPES ARE ALL FINISHED, IT IS THE NEXT SECTION THAT I’VE GOT TO FINISH OFF FABRICATING A COUPLE OF LITTLE BITS TO DO ON EM AND THEN IT’LL BE ALL PIPED UP AND READY TO ROCK N ROLL!! 🙂
ALSO THE HANDLEBARS THAT IT CAME WITH I WERE’NT THAT FOND OF SO THEY HAD TO COME OFF, JUST DID’NT SUIT THAT STYLE OF BIKE IN MY OPINION!! 🙂 I’VE PUT A SET OF APE-HANGERS ON IT NOW, AND TO ME IT LOOKS A MILLION TIMES BETTER!!! 🙂 I CONVERTED IT TO LED’S ASWELL, THE PREVIOUS LIGHTS JUST WERE’NT BRIGHT ENOUGH FOR ME, AS I WANNA BE SEEN WHEN I’M COMING DOWN THE ROAD IN THE DARK!!! AND THESE LIGHT YOU UP LIKE A XMAS TREE!! LOL!! 🙂 SO IN ME CHANGING THE BARS OVER I HAD TO LENGTHEN THE WIRING, CABLES, ETC BECAUSE THE ONES THAT ARE NOW ON IT ARE A LOT TALLER AS YOU’LL BE ABLE TO SEE IN THE NEXT GROUP OF PICS!! 🙂
HERE’S A SELECTION OF PICTURES FROM WHEN I REMOVED THE OLD EXHAUST SYSTEM, AND WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE OFF OR MOVE ASIDE, SO THAT YOU CAN GET TO OTHER THINGS A BIT MORE EASILY!! AND THERE’S ALSO A COUPLE OF PICTURES THAT SHOW THE NEW CUSTOM ONE OFF EXHAUST SYSTEM BEING MADE AND FORMED IN S/STEEL!!! 🙂 SOMETIMES THE COOKER COMES IN A TREAT FOR GTTING THE PIPING HOT ENOUGH SO IT’LL BEND EASIER!! 🙂 THE LITTLE TRICKS WE PICK UP IN LIFE AS WE JOURNEY ON THROUGH IT!! :_)
This is how it all dismantled, and I was surprised to find out that the centre section was in a squared configuration!!!
