Bitter End – Old School Choppers’ “Midnight Marauder”

Chapter II

By Big Daddy Al Wilkerson

This time we get into the technical down-and-dirty
of engine and tranny mount mounting, build some pyramids, and…

…basically redesign the backbone of the frame on the fly…

Here is an example of our CNC cut mounts (available on the site) with the end-mill- miter-cut (in this case, our standard 17 degrees) radius (per tubing size).

Below is a picture of the rear motor mount and the front tranny mount in the jig. Normally these fit-ups would be water-tight since the mounts are end-mill cut for exact tubing size and seat post angle degree, but since we are using square tubing we will have to make adjustments when we go to weld. Or, cut some mounts without the radiuses.

I know you've been waiting for this, and here it is (finally1) PART 2 of Big Daddy's Build. This thing is just too freekin' awesome...anyway, check it out as Big Daddy fuses gun and motorcycle creating true CHOPPER ART!
