    Nice bike, lets hear some details on that rear brake setup… I’ve been considering doing an underslung caliper on my chop

  3. mark bailey says:

    The underslung caliper is 1200 bandit unit, I have used these on other builds. They are really easy to mount. I think the under slung look is a lot cleaner than the original monster unit. Also, from an engineering stand point, tube being pulled on as opposed to pushed on is in most cases stronger.

    great job man….its not a bobber but you did a great job! You officially ride a “chopper”.

    Thanks for the comment. What’s the diff between a bobber and a chopper? I thought I built a bobber?
    I thought choppers where more raked out with higher bars………….
