I didn't know there were any! So no im not, I just build and ride:cool:

I'm going to be starting a new one sooner than later-it'll be longer and lower.

Im working on making my current chopper street legal, it' sjust hard to find time to get to the DMV to get a vin#.

who did you get your parts through? I worked with www.slaughterscustomshop.com a bunch, they were very helpful and supplied me with my 205 rear tire:D

The orange flamed V-Twin near the top of this page makes me drool too. It was just on ebay with a reserve of $7500, but didn't meet reserve.

Ok, this may be a dumb question, I know what drifting is, and I guess for ice you'd just change to studded tires, but what is "over" racing?

sorry about that-I meant oval racing.

yeah your right, just throw studs on and keep on spinnin the tires!

hey Rookie, I just found a couple of the forums myself. Which ones are you on if you don't mind me asking? So far I like the Hardcore Mini Forum best.

Also, if anyones interested (and didn't already know about it), there's a Mini Chopper Magazine (www.minichoppermagazine.com) too.

There's some sweet bikes out there, but the more I see the more I like mine-simple, from scratch, fairly fast, and so god dang fun :drinkup:
