G & L Choppers:

Here's the latest ride from G&L Choppers in Colorado Spring, Co. It was built for Duane who lives in Colorado Springs. This is a run down parts that we used on the build. The frame is our new 180/200mm frame which has a slight goose neck and 40 degree rake. We used the 200/55/18 out back. The front has a 4' over stock DNA springer with a 21' wheel. For brakes we used a single 11 1/2' rotor and 4 piston caliper on the rear. The forward controls are a new style we'll be offering. They have a three holed radiused arm which moves the control peg forward. We had them nickel plated. We used our round battery box which was also nickel plated. The motor remains mostly stock with upgrades on the electrical and the addition of 34mm Mikuni VM Carbs. We used a sportster style tank with a flush mount cap. The seat is another new item we'll be offering for both this type a and spring solo application. The main pan is made of 12 ga. mild steel. We then had a 16 ga. stainless steel  1 1/2' ring water jetted to use on the top of the seat. The seat was upholstered and the ring attached with blackened screw back rivets. We used a 8 1/2' spun rear fender. The handle bars are another new item we'll be offering. They are made of specifically for the DNA springers. We used 7/8 DOM and they are completely TIG Welded.  They are low slung to give a clip on appearance. These were nickel plated as well. Exhaust are new as well. They are made of 1 3/4' 16 ga tubing and TIG welded. These were nickel plated and wrapped. For lights we used a 4 1/2' head light and our radiused side mount plate holder with a large cateye taillight. Paint is HOK black.
