Hmmm, krylon "regal" blue don't have no fords. Must have been something I was trying to match up with my Camaro

OH OH, i did it again. I decided that my Vibratory case tumbler would be a nice way to really make my salvaged spokes and nipples SHINE!.


not only did it not work very well i packed the nipples with corn cob media. Now as i assemble I have to dig the crap out of all the treads with a paper clip. Anything to make my job a pain in the behind LOL
Anyway i should have a picture of a wheel here later today. I don't haven any inner tubes laying around though.. so no tires yet

first set of spokes in. Rag and rubbing compound to clean each spoke and a paper clip to clean out each nipple during assembly made this part take a very long time.

Yeah, but it's worth it!
I mean, just look at that thing, dude! WTG! :punk:



Is it possible that I'm biased in favor of a blue chopper wheel? Hmmm...

Here's the photo album, if you wanna check it out.
The "slide show" feature works really well & is the best way to view it, IMO:

i am loving this bike (chopzilla) and I am especially impressed with the transmission, I was wondering how you built it and if it would work with a freewheel ?

Thanks

Thanx, CK! I built it pretty much per the plans.

It DOES have a freewheel on the rear axle:

And yes, that monster wheel & tire combo DOES weigh 55 lbs! :eek:
The rim was 10" wide, & the tire was 12" wide.

Im having a go at the Gladiator, and i was wondering if i could use the mid drive system, with a 7 speed freewheel on the right hand side ? would that work out ?

Thats one FAT and heavy rear tire, whats it like to pedal around ?

May be easier to drive the left axle! Start at the cranks, 1 ,2 or 3 cogs, chain to free wheel mounted on jack shaft, right hand side. A free wheel will screw on here safely. Left side of jack shaft has another freewheel adaptor, and drives rear chain to 7 speed hub on end of left axle. All freewheels screw on naturally! Can be done either way. If you can't get the jack shaft across to the left hand side, your way will work, just be carefull which way the freewheels are working!

I think it would work. Pretty sure a couple other guys on here have already done it.

Chopzilla weighed in at a whopping 102 lbs, but still wasn't bad to pedal on level ground,
cuz I used the smallest front sprocket possible. I think it was about 5", if memory serves,
& was the same size as both sprockets on the jackshaft. It was TINY:

In spite of the low gearing, it was still a BEAST on even the SLIGHTEST hill!
There's a real short video of it on my youtube channel.
Sadly, I had to sell it about a year ago. :(

Thanx, CK! Yeah, I really liked it too, but some sacrifices had to be made, & in fact, a couple more still need be made. :(

Brad's Overkill Chop was the very first set of PLANS I purchased when I joined the forum nearly 6 full years ago, but I ended up buying other plans as well before building it, & completing 2 others first, so this one ended up being the THIRD one actually finished.

Not real practical, but it was great for parades & shows!

I miss it. Sadly, this is the only vid I have of it. :(

Really sad to see it go, was a great chop !! You would be missing it !

I have only been a member for a few months but have already built the spincycle stunt trike with only a day of planning and a few pictures to go off, but I have been planning the Gladiator I am building for about 6 months, and finally it's coming together !
