    Good call, I noticed it as soon as I picked it up, the guy did a good job but blasted the mating surfaces. I'm going to take it off with a 3m disk when the time comes.

    Good eye, It is a custom rear fender. It is a BDM but it's a Rolling Thunder model (2003).

    Here are a few pictures of what I have for what you are need or looking for. They are in better shape than I expected for being under the work bench. If you like what you see PM me with what they are worth to you and we'll go from there

    Thise trees do look good. Just a little white diamond to clean them up and hopefully the 2 can make a deal.

    Question: does anyone know who makes an external fork stop kit for use with the '03 chopper? I managed to pick up a set of trees for $100, but it's the classic "get what you pay for". The internal fork stop holes are questionable. I considered possibly running small helicoils in them for safety's sake. Either way I need to find the right internal fork stop kit. If not, I'm sure there's a way to convert the neck over to external stops with a drive-in kit. Not sure where to begin. The bike had a stock wide-glide front end when I got the roller. I have spare stem and 2 sets of bearings which is good, but all the bike had is a set of races...which the powdercoating shop covered. So they need to be replaced.

    You should start a seperate thread for your build to document the progress similar to my pitbull to ridgeback build.

    What type of triple trees did you get?
    May want to give Derrick and Donna or Curtis a call. External fork stops should be pretty easy to find.
    As far as the holes go have you tried running a tap through them to clean them up?

    1. I agree with the starting a new thread. I think this one has fulfilled its purpose so far :) 2. The trees are unknown brand. They're billet cut but the description and seller's multiple messages on Ebay were misleading. I asked repeatedly if the internal stop area was in good working order and it was a supposed yes. They were also supposedly never installed and just sprayed black and used for mock ups...well they were definitely used and you can clearly see under the paint that the chrome was trashed which is why they were painted I'm betting. Anyways...pretty much duped out of $100. My fault. Should've just saved a little more and purchased the proper set. I'll see if I have a tap I can run through the holes after I sand blast them to check serviceability. The externals are fine. Bolt-in type. So I figured if I have to press in new races and an stuff anyways, try to shoot for externals to prevent a total loss. I'd much prefer the internals though. From what I can see it should work with the normal press in race/stop on the lower. Fingers crossed lol..now it's getting the right tools for ease of the job. I'll post up some pictures in a bit.

    Couldn't find a readily available extractor...so I made one for less that $6 in electrical conduit, using a hack saw, rotary tool, file, and bench vice. :)

    A little adjusting was needed and a tweak here and there, but once I had it right, worked like a champ and had the races out in less than 3 minutes...after almost 2 hours of trial and error tool construction... lol[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
