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 I'm sorry sir, your warranty is no longer valid.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

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

•lighten up a little• I hate having my picture taken but Heather is usually more open to it. Anyway... this is us and @littlebellblue ‘s cool little KZ440 chop we built together for the @thegreasydozen back in May. We showed it last month at @fuelcleveland and had one of the best weekends ever! We love this little thing and are super proud of it!

About to administer the cure to this 91 FXR. Cait-to-Bruce surgery is about to begin. This one is going up 6", out 0", stock 28 degree rake. #chopper #choppers #fxrchopper #buildchoppers #stockbikessuck #caittobrucesurgery #midwestmemberextender #harleydavidsonhatesme #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

I got the forks assembled with racetech suspension, and set it down on its wheels on this FXR chopper. I also mounted the tank. I still need to move the fuel petcock in the tank, make risers to weld on to the stainless steel handlebars, and peak the front frame legs. After that, the owner takes over on it. 1991 FXR, 6" up, 0" out, stock rake, 6" over fork tubes. #fxr #fxrchopper #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopper #choppers #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatfxr #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

Working long hours, trying to get this chopper done and out the door before I leave for Sturgis next week. I'm hoping to have the frame done today. I still need to make tank mounts, voltage regulator mount, and backbone transition. This one is a 2006 Dyna Super Glide, stretched 6" up, 1 1/2" out, 35 degree neck, and will have 8" over stock 49mm fork tubes. #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #chopped #frame

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

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

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

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

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

@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

I just got this chop job dropped of in the shop, and it is sitting at the 3rd in line right now. What's so special about this one, you ask? It is a brand new 2018 softball... which is the new frame style that combined the softail and dyna models. As far as I'm aware of, there hasn't been one of these new style frames cut up and chopped yet. I'm about to administer the Big Gabe treatment to it. Stay tuned. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #newframe #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck

The new steel tubing came in the other day, so I've been hard at work on this tall Dyna Super Glide chopper. I still need to do tank mounts, backbone transition, finish welding, then I can mock it up and measure for forks. The mainstream fad followers in Tennessee are going to think the aliens have landed when they see this Street Freak after it gets back home! #streetfreak #freakofthestreets #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

The neck is reworked and the frame is prepped and ready to start building it back into a chopper. The owner wants a high neck midwest style chopper, so I'm doing another tall one. 09 Dyna Super Glide, 15" up, 1 1/2" out, 32 degree neck. #chopper #choppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #freakoutthesquares #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat

I finished the stainless bars/risers today, and finished the tank modifications yesterday. This FXR chopper is ready for the owner to take over on it now. 1991 FXR, 6" up, 0" out, stock rake, 6" over fork tubes, peaked frame legs, custom stainless bars and risers. #fxr #fxrchopper #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #freakoutthesquares #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatfxr #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms

This FXR chopper is really close to going home. I peaked the front frame legs today. I still need to move the fuel petcock in the tank, and make risers to weld to the handlebars, then it goes back to the owner.

This little antique Craftsman Atlas manual lathe is perfect for axle spacers, modifying small parts, etc. It's pretty fun to use too. I'm opening up the center of a sprocket spacer to clear a bigger diameter axle spacer for a 300 tire bike getting converted to chain drive. #craftsman #atlas #atlaslathe #geardrive #beltdrive #antique #manualmachining #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #buildchoppers
