It's a great Friday to cut up another stock bike to give it the cure. This 07 Dyna Low Rider is locked down and centered on the surgery table, and the new neck location is set for 6" up 1 1/2" out and 36 degree rake. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #dynachopper #dyna #lowrider #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

This 07 Dyna Low Rider is next in line. It's prepped and stripped down, ready to go on the surgery table to get the cure. This one will be getting stretched up 6" and 36 degree rake, round backbone, cleaned up neck, and 8" over 49mm fork tubes. There's no rest when you're spreading the chopper gospel. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #dynachopper #dyna #lowrider #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

I just rolled this 2009 Fatboy chopper off the lift and took it for a test ride. I cut it in half and stretched it 10" up, 1 1/2" out, 35 degree rake, 12" over fork tubes. The owner wanted it to look like a Fatboy, but slimmed up and a chopper. It's ready to go home, and I'm starting on the next one in line... a 2007 Dyna Low Rider. You can't build choppers 8 days a week if you're sitting on your ass watching Jerry Springer! #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #softail #fatboy #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

This 09 Softail Fatboy is cut apart and in process of getting a 10" member extension. I make sure to have one on the frame table at all times to keep spreading the chopper gospel! On another note... 3 people in line flaked out on Friday, so I'm sure all the others in line will be happy to get jumped ahead on time. Due to this, from now on I will require a deposit be put down for anyone wanting on the chop list. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #softail #fatboy #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

The next sick patient is on the table and about to get the cure. This Softail Fatboy will be going 10" up, 1 1/2" out, 35 degree rake, 12" over fork tubes, pull back drag bars, and will be keeping the stock tank/wheel/front end. The owner wants a Fatboy chopper. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #softail #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

This softail frame spent it's last day as a boring stock bike, and is the next one to get the cure. This one is going 10" up, 1 1/2" out, 35 degree rake. One last pic of it before it gets bifurcated by a portable band saw. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #softail #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #freakoutthesquares #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

I got a text from a great previous customer in Tennessee that had me chop his Dyna Super Glide several months ago. He rode it through the mountains at Deals Gap last weekend, and wanted to let me know it handled great and was a blast to ride in the corners. This one was chopped high and tight, 15" up, 1 1/2" out, 32 degree rake, 17" over narrow glide front end. It's cool to see the pics of him riding it in the mountains! #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #dynachopper #highandtight #highneck #midwesttallchopper #dealsgap #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #biggabechoppedit

The Denver's springer got delivered today for the softail chopper.

It was finally a nice, sunny, 65 degree day in Kansas, so I only worked a 1/2 day and then went out riding the choppers with @halo_chopperlife . We got out on the 2 lane backroads for a while. Kansas farmland sure is flat, but it can be pretty too with those sunny blue skies. #kansas #farmland #sunnyblueskies #2laneblacktop #backroads #bigGabechoppedit #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #weridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #harleydavidson #magicmikehatesmychopper

I opened up a brand new Harley front brake caliper and took some measurements, then put it on the Bridgeport mill and made it mount how I needed it to mount. When mismatched parts dont fit together, sometimes you have to make them fit. #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms #stockbikessuck #brake #brakecaliper #frontend #machining #manualmachining #bridgeportmill

This brand new 2018 Softail rolled of the lift for the first time as a chopper. This is the new style frame that got the cure, but has been sitting for 10 weeks waiting on fork tubes from Frank's. I chopped it and went 10" up, 1 1/2" out, 36 degree rake, adapted a Sportster 39mm narrow glide front end with 16" over fork tubes, powder coated triple trees and lower leg sliders. I'm waiting for a brake line and clutch cable, then test ride it and clean it up. #bigGabechoppedit #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #hogmemberscried #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #harleydavidson #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #voidingwarranties #magicmikehatesmychopper

I picked up another set of triple trees and lower leg sliders this morning from getting powder coated in gloss black at Lorac. This is the front end that is going on the new 2018 Softail that I chopped. Now I can get everything together, measure for a brake line, and finish up the wiring. Hopefully I can get this one done and off the lift pretty soon. It sat for 10 weeks waiting for Frank's forks. #bigGabechoppedit #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #newframe #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #voidingwarranties #powdercoat

I got this Softail off of the frame table and measured for a springer front end, and took a pic of the basic mock up. The next Dyna in line is locked down and about ready to get the cure. I have some more things to do on the Softail before I get going on the Dyna though. #chopped #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #dynachopper #dyna #softail #midwesttallchopper #highneck #streetfreak #midwestmemberextender #freakoutthesquares #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

This softail is finish welded, neck gusset done, all mounts made, and the tank fit on. I'll weld on the tank mounts in the morning and weld in a fuel petcock. It needs to come off the surgery table and get mocked up to measure for a springer front end next. #chopped #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #thecure #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestisthebest #midwestmemberextender #freakoutthesquares #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

After 10 weeks of waiting for fork tubes from Frank's, they finally showed up for this new 2018 Softail that I chopped. The owner decided to have some parts powder coated since it had been sitting and waiting for so long on forks, and the forks got here the day after I dropped off the other parts to get powder coated. Hopefully I'll have it all together next week. #bigGabechoppedit #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #newframe #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #harleydavidson #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #harleydavidsonhatesmychopper #voidingwarranties

I got most of the front half of the frame built on this aftermarket softail. I need to make the neck gusset, coil mount, tank mounts, and finish some welding tomorrow.

You can't build choppers 8 days a week if you're sitting on the couch watching Jerry Springer. The current softail chop job has all the sickness and previous "modifications" cut out of it, and I'm waiting on a shipment of steel tubing. Today, I'm tearing down this black 07 Dyna to get it ready for a whole lot of the cure next in line. The other softail and dyna frames are already here waiting in line, but they're number 10 and 11 on the cure list. I wonder what it's like to take a day off 🤔... but I love it! #chopped #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #frame #softailchopper #dynachopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #midwestisthebest #midwestmemberextender #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead

When you have a mill and lathe, your friends think up all kinds of things for you to do. @cory_kc had a set of 39mm triple trees that he wanted bored out to fit 41mm fork tubes, so I figured it would be a good idea to have @halo_chopperlife learn to use the mill on his parts. Now she can remind him that she machined his parts. 😄 #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms #stockbikessuck #tripletrees #frontend #machining #manualmachining #bridgeportmill

Going through older pictures this morning trying to find something, and came across these that I did a few years back. This was an aftermarket Paughco frame that I added about 4" up, a little bit of rake, twisted square front legs and top motor mount, etc. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopped #twisted #paughco #hardtail #shovelhead #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck
