What a Slacker
After 4 months of waiting on parts, waiting on the machine shop, waiting on parts, waiting on paint to dry, waiting on parts, assembling and did I say waiting on parts? my 1966 Shovelhead motor and trans are ready to slip into the frame.
Saturday night I lay down to sleep with the knowledge that in a few weeks and a little wiring, some wrenching and did i say waiting I parts? it will be back on the road.
Sunday over a cup of fresh roasted coffee I am told by the Chicago Tribune that I have been slacking off over this rebuild. There above the headline it tells me "BUILD A CHOPPER FROM SCRATCH IN 3 DAYS"
WTF How can this be done?
Turns out there is a Chopper School here in Chicago that will teach you how to build a chopper in 3 days of classes. You don't build one they just teach you everything you need to know to build your own in three days. I've been building bikes for 30+ years so I must either be slow or a slacker.
I'm thinking there will be a ton of half built choppers up for sale soon. LOL
