Choppers and Custom Bikes I've Built

Chopper VI

Wanted to build a quick cheap Run-a-Round chop so after a short search in the local advert papers I bought a standard Honda CB750 F2 dohc donor bike. It had about 40K miles on the clock, however being a Honda I new that unless a complete twat had owned it and never put oil in it, it would be sound.
I pulled it apart threw the frame onto the jig to make sure the frame was true, everything was ok. I then cut the rear frame and top (tank) tubes off, removed the swinging arm and fabricated a hardtail and single top tube conversion.

I asked mates, looked on ebay and in local ad papers for a cheap petrol tank, all to no avail. I was about to make one from scratch when I spotted an every day item (well up here anyway) and thought that will do. What was it? I will leave you guessing for a bit.

I loved this chops reg number DOA - Dead on Arrival - I love tempting fate.
The front end and rear wheel are as Mr Honda intended them to be, the motor is stock except for a set of K&N's, it ran like shit with them on however I just kept adding electrical tape over them until it ran sweet and the plugs were a nice colour. Well I did say a cheap run-a-round.

No it doesn't snow in Scotland all the time, it quite often rains, oh, and some times the sun shines, some times!! Anyway even a Honda power-slides in this stuff.
The backrest finial is a bit of a trade mark of mine, made a few for my chops now. I also like ape hangers.

Worked out the tank's donor yet? I'll tell you soon. While were on about the tank, the FTW paint job was meant to have runs, I wanted it to have that graffiti look.

The exhausts are standard down pipes with stainless steel silencers? They produced a lovely rip, when giving it some wellie. The seat was covered by a friend, it was her first attempt at a bike seat, well done I think.

Did you work out the tank's donor yet, ok it was a - - propane gas tank. To be precise the bottom off a 47kg cylinder, once the ring is removed from the bottom, and cut at an angle. Do you see it now?
A very BIG word of WARNING, I have been on gas courses and should know better, I know that Propane is heavier than air, and at a certain Propane/Air mix it is explosive, so with this in mind I removed an EMPTY tank's valve and turned it upside-down (in an open drafty area) for a few hours before cutting into it with a 9" grinder. The smell of Propane was still very strong and I was shitting a brick when I first cut into it.
I was blown-up and killed - no - only kidding, but beware.

This is a couple of pictures of the Honda at the Satan Slaves show in Crail, Fife. I had a great time drag racing it, and as you can see the sun does shine occasionally in Scotland.
