Here's a pic of when we first got the 57 compared to today. I worked late last night and part of today getting the last few things wrapped up on it. The powder coated bumpers are on, door and wing windows in with all new seals/tracks, kick panels in, floor mats, changed the front lock out hub dials, adjusted a few things, and gave everything one last check. We took it out on the maiden voyage and filled up the 32 gallon tank to feed the big block. It was pretty amazing to actually drive it around after 3 1/2 years of working on it in every bit of spare time, doing a complete frame off build, everything rebuilt, rust repair, frame swap, complete drive train build, etc. Its finally done except for a couple minor things I'm waiting on the mail for. Yes, it's in green aircraft primer, and yes, it'll eventually get a nice paint job. #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #57chevy #trifivetrucks #chevytruck #gmctruck #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #trifive #bigblockchevy #454 #4speed #4x4 #4wd #isthatthing4wheeldrive #frameswap #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough #builtnotbought #vintagetruck #maidenvoyage

What an honor to be in The Horse Magazine @thehorsebc. Being married to a chopper builder and not having one myself was not gonna happen. My hubs @big_gabe_chops nailed the article and I cant thank you enough!! Hubs rule was if I wanted this chopper so bad that I was gonna help build it with him and I did just that♡ The Chopper had only been done about 3 months and he asked if I would like to go to ride the choppers Sturgis, that was an automatic YESSS! My Chopper handled perfectly in the Black Hills. I personally feel the bike handles better chopped than stock. He built this Chopper to fit me exactly how I wanted. There's not to many Chicks who would even ride to Sturgis yet alone on a Fuckin Chopper!! ♡ I went 10' up and 1 1/2 out with 34 degree rake, 02' softail #sturgis2018 #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms #thehorsebc #chicksridechopperstoo #softail #blackhills #thankful #cantwaitforournextbuild #builtnotbought #BCP #bluecollarproud #support #deadwood #needleshighway #spearfishcanyon #cuterstatepark #hillcity #lead #keystone #justagirlfromkansas

Thanks for the stickers @rmaag3 ! He ordered some choppers 2% stickers from @beerrmcf_choprideandparty in Holland, and sent some to me. Only 2% of all bikers still build and ride CHOPPERS... I definitely fall into that 2%! #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #choppersforlife

This brand new 2018 Softail got the sickness cut out of it. This is the new style frame, and I'm not aware of one being cut up and chopped yet... but that doesn't stop me from administering the cure. 2018 Softail, 10" up, 1 1/2" out, 35 degree rake. I'm sorry sir, your warranty is no longer valid. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #newframe #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds #harleydavidson #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #harleydavidsonhatesmychopper

This brand new 2018 Softail is about to get the cure. Tearing it apart today to get ready to go on the surgery table. This is the new style frame, about to get cut in half and reborn into a chopper. It had a very short life being a stock bike. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #newframe #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds #harleydavidson #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

I got some help from @halo_chopperlife today, and we put seat upholstery kit on the bench seat for the 57. I reluctantly bought an upholstery kit for it, which usually never fit very good, but I just wanted something to look decent until I have a professional do it. I have to admit that I'm surprised at how good it turned out. The small wrinkles might settle down after some low heat. Halo had to modify a couple of the attachment points on a sewing machine, but we got it whipped. #seatcover #benchseat #bitchingandstitching #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #57chevy #trifivetrucks #chevytruck #gmctruck #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #gmctruck #chevytruck #trifive #bigblockchevy #454 #4speed #4x4 #4wd #isthatthing4wheeldrive #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough #builtnotbought

This chopper went home to Kansas City tonight. It threw a couple last minute temper tantrums going back together, but its ready to get down now. The owner will be making a seat, painting it, and doing motor work now, so it's going to be a really nice chopper when it hits the streets before long. 2014 Dyna Street Bob, 14" up, 3" out, 36 degree rake, 20" over 41mm fork tubes. #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

Getting down to all the little things to make and finish up on this latest Dyna chopper. Hopefully it will be close to being done today, but then I need to make a sissy bar for it after that. Trying to have it ready for paint by this weekend. The Performance Machine parts and Southern MC wheels are looking good. The owner tried out a few sets of handlebars, and picked the ones he liked, so I'm finishing up the cables and wiring now. #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

Some more progress on the 57 over the last couple of weeks. I got the shifter boots in, and the transmission cover installed, sanded/ prepped/ painted the interior sides of the doors and the rest of the interior trim pieces, the hood and door hinges, and the bottom side of the hood, installed and adjusted the doors and hood, made the rear bumper, etc. The bumpers are ready to go to get powder coated cream white to match the grill and wheels. I got the new glass cut for the wing windows and door windows. Now I need to install the door glass, regulators, latches, etc. Paint will come down the line, but I'm going to finish everything else and drive it a while first. #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #57chevy #trifivetrucks #chevytruck #gmctruck #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #trifive #bigblockchevy #454 #4speed #4x4 #4wd #isthatthing4wheeldrive #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough #builtnotbought #vintagetruck

I had to fix these aftermarket internal fork dampers on the lathe. They were made a few thousands too big of a diameter, and wouldn't fit through the bottom of the fork tubes. I've never seen this issue before, but I turned them down instead of ordering new ones and waiting for them to ship. Sometimes you just have to make things work. #choppers #buildchoppers #craftsman #atlas #atlaslathe #geardrive #beltdrive #antique #manualmachining #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

The forks are finally assembled and put on this Dyna Street Bob chopper. I had to spend a while on the lathe to fix the poor quality aftermarket damper tubes that go inside the forks. It's all good now, and almost ready to sit on the wheels after the rear brake rotor gets here. #franksforks #forkingbyfrank #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

I almost got done with this frame today, but I stopped making all the small parts and took it off of the frame table so I could mock up and measure for fork tubes. I wanted to get them measured and ordered so I can continue with everything while I'm waiting for them. This one is getting 20 over 41mm forks. #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #forkingbyfrank #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

I'm in the process of giving the cure to this 2014 Dyna Street Bob. All of the stock ugliness got cut out and thrown in the scrap pile, and it'll be reborn into a chopper like it always dreamed of being. I'll make the rest of the frame parts tomorrow, and hopefully get everything welded. 14" up, 3" out, 36 degree rake. #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

A little more progress on the 57 over the last couple of weeks. The rocker steps are 28" to the ground, so it sits up pretty good. I installed the receiver hitch, fuel vent line, and enough of the filler neck to get it out from under the bed, then put the bed on the frame. I put the rear fenders on with a few bolts to check it out. I'd say all of my measuring, figuring, frame shortening, etc. worked out perfect. The rear wheels fit just right in the fender openings. I put the fuel filler cap in the driver side rear fender and finished making the filler neck and vent. I got the new windshield, and installed it and the back glass. #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #trifivetrucks #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #gmctruck #chevytruck #trifive #bigblockchevy #4speed #4x4 #4wd #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough

This 2014 Dyna Street Bob was lucky enough to be the next in line to get the cure. It's locked down on the surgery table and just got a whole bunch of ugly cut off with the portable band saw. This one will be going 14" up, 3" out, 36 degree rake. #chopper #choppers #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat

I just finished up this 2009 Dyna Super Glide chopper for @ridechoppershailsatan and took it for a rip. I administered the cure to this one, and went 15" up, 1 1/2" out, and 32 degree rake with 17" over 39mm tubes. It handles really nice, and I let go of the handlebars at 30 mph and at 90 mph, and it tracks perfect. I'm sure he'll be ready to get this bad sumbitch shipped back home to Tennessee real soon. Now I'm starting on the next chopper in line, a 2014 Dyna Street Bob. #chopper #choppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #freakoutthesquares #streetfreak #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #tallchopper #howcanyouevenridethat #administerthecure

No days off in my world... slaving on a Sunday making custom length axle spacers for a chopper on my little Craftsman lathe. I'm hoping to have this latest chop ready to test ride tomorrow. I have several little things to finish up on it today. It should be going home to Tennessee soon. #axlespacers #choppers #buildchoppers #craftsman #atlas #atlaslathe #geardrive #beltdrive #antique #manualmachining #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

@ridechoppershailsatan is anxiously waiting for the fork tubes, front tire and cables/brake line to get delivered so I can finish up his 09 Dyna Super Glide. As soon as everything gets here, I can get it wrapped up and test ride it. It should be about 3 more weeks to get the custom fork tubes from Frank's forks. It'll soon be freaking out the squares in Tennessee. 2009 Dyna Super Glide, 15" up, 2" out, 32 degree rake, midwest style high and tight chopper. #streetfreak #freakoutthesquares #chopper #choppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #harleydavidson #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #blowingminds
