Default mini chopper
started on this last winter, it was long & cold and I got bored.
started with 30 ft. of .095 & .120 wall 1" tube.
plasma cut some triple trees & fork drop outs & rear axle mounts.
found a 144 spoke lowrider bicycle wheel on ebay, golf cart rim & turf tire from the local golf cart dealer.
traded some welding for the 60's mustang chopper tank.
comet torq-a-verter to give it the open primary look, bent up a 180 tube to move the carb to the front right side like a "big" chop. got a lil K&N cone filter off a pit bike for it

You need to take a pic of you sitting on it to get the full mini effect
