Ha,Ha hey guys BPC is back in action for a while anyway. I took an intended job so I can get back to my love of building choppers. Few updates on Magic Carpet Ride, First of all frame never got powder coated. The powder coated went to the big house for a while but his OL let me get my frame back. Paint on Tank and fender got done and now I'm. In the process of getting everything. Together for the engine. Here are a few pics for you chop porn pervs.

Couple updates from Back Porch Choppers. My oldest and truest Bro, Tie Wire has signed on to help out and has acquired a project of his own dubbed The Arrogant Bastard. It's actually a hacked up 1951 Triumph frame I picked up a few years ago and had started on before The Magic Carpet Ride came along. Anyway here are the details of The Arrogant Bastard. 1951 pre unit frame that I modified to accept a unit mill, stretched the ass end 6", replaced the old triumph neck with a Harley neck and gave it 42 degrees of rake leaving the numbers intact. This frame was and still is in bad shape but we will see how she turns out. Here are some pics for you grease balls.

CONN.RODD, I wish I could but I'd need a lathe or a CNC. He can buy them from Paugo though.

Hey guys, I just wanted to stop in and say hey to anyone watching this thread. Progress right now is slow I'm trying to get the money together to buy the parts for the engine rebuild. Although I've no pictures to post, I can tell you there are some big things coming for this engine rebuild. I'm really stoked on my plan for this the only thing from the motor that I'll be using is the cases of course, the head but it's getting some work done, the crank, the cam gears and the tranny everything else will be new. So here is my plan. Margo 750cc big bore kit, balanced crank shaft, head will be rebuilt with larger exhaust valves, new cams from mega cycles, new tappets and followers, Bob Newbie belt drive, Joe Hunt magneto, new push rods, a new set of connecting rods from Map Cycles, Margo oil pump and a new set of Amal 930s. I hope just by reading this you guys get as excited as I am. When the money is together and the parts are all here I'll take lots of pics of the rebuild. She's going to be fast and loud.

Thanks guys, We got a lead on a full on chopper frame build. If it happens then Back Porch Choppers will have generated some income and since I have no overhead except materials it's all profit that is choppa bound.
