Jaysco's Chopper
Let me first point out I am NOT a bike builder, but re-builder. Although I totally stripped every last nut and bolt off this bike and re-assembled it with slight changes, I really didn't do any serious fabricating. 

The bike when I got it was a basket case, sat for 15-20 years not running, pieces went missing and age took it's toll.  I took it apart, stripped the paint off the frame and replaced it with 5 coats of bomb can paint, cut the king/queen seat in half and had the local interior shop pad and cover it.  Most of the electrical was either missing or shot so I rewired it, got new coils and ignition and a solid state regulator/rectifier unit. 

After inspecting the motor as good as I could without taking it apart I deemed it run-able, after 10 straight minutes of kicking (starter doesn't engage) it fired up.  Most of the braces/brackets are from the hardware store, all the chrome is pitted from the rust (some still has rust on it) even after countless hours with steel wool and polishing compound.  I guess you could call my chop one of those 10-Footers (looks good from 10 feet away), but that's fine with me.  It took six months and $2500 (including purchase of the bike) to finish. 


Here's a small list of some of the components:

Frame: Denvers
Springer?: (Most likely Denvers as well)
Motor: 72' SOHC 750 (stock internals I think.. Never cracked it open)
Paint: Krylon on frame, DuPont on motor
Tires/Wheels: 19" front, 16" rear.  Maxxis tires
Carbs: Stock with some generic cone filters
Brakes: Stock drum in rear
Ignition: Dyna
Coils: Dyna
Plugs/Wires: NGK/Accel
Pipes?: Not a clue.
Hoses: Various sizes from Lowes
Gas tank: A little under 2 gallons
