Where Do I find Information on Building Choppers?

This is a question we get all the time from people building their first bike.

The task of building a bike can seem daunting, and while it would be nice to have a book that explains everything you need to know about building choppers, none exists. Oh sure, there are books on bike building, but they either gloss over the information so much that they are of no real value, or they're for a specific bike kit and not applicable to other projects.

The best place you can start to learn about bike building is to go to your local news stand, and pick up a copy of The Horse: Back Street Choppers. This magazine is dedicated to people who build there own bikes, and is a wealth of information for someone new. They also have a website at www.ironcross.net, which has some of the best technical message boards on the internet.

As far as all the specs you need, the old standard Harley Shop manual is still the best. Granted, they will not cover every single thing, but they do cover most of the important topics, including drivetrain, front ends, wheel spacing, ect. Also, many of the aftermarket manufacturers you will undoubtablely buy parts from such as S&S also have excellent technical manuals.

Fantastic blog you've got here ChopperSurplus, I was looking for tire ratings related information and found your site. I have a tire ratings site. You'll find info on atv tires as well as most major brands of vehicle tires such as Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Cooper and more. With winter right around the corner, you can also get tire chain recommendations for your vehicle. Stop by and check it out when you can.
