This is my quest to build the best chop I can. I can't really weld or do any body work. I have mechanical ability and a drive to get off my ass and build something. Just thought it would be cool to show all my fuck ups.

Battery Tray

I had time to mount the battery tray from Acme Choppers that my honey gave me.

I took it apart and found center of the mounting bracket.

I figured out how much of the mounting tab I needed to hack off and scribed a line.  I used my handy dandy digital caliper I just got from HF.

After figuring clearances of the surroundings I tacked it up.

Ready for finish welding.

Gangsta lean!

The Next Spielberg......

Gas Tank Mounted Right

Using progressively larger bits and a little filing

I drilled two holes in the backbone to fit my mounting bung

Then made sure everything was right

Then Tacked both mounts in place

Easy Peasy
