No School Choppers Rigid Triumph


When Jason Craver and his friend Lenny Dix set out to build their version of the perfect rigid unit Triumph, little did they know how quickly that vision would become someone else's reality. By dumb luck or divine providence, one week after Jason and Lenny finished their project Ivan Pylypchuk ponied up to buy their creation.

Here's the backstory from Jason Craver himself on No School Chopper's Triumph frame project.

The rebuilt motor came to us with about 2,500 miles on her so we polished the covers, slapped on a new carb and detailed the snot out of it. Thing runs like a champ. We spent some good time fabricating and working the crossover brake assembly. I should say Lenny did because he changed it a few times to get it perfect. The frame is our new rigid Triumph frame, and we're diggin' it. We wanted a frame with the proper dimensions. You see a lot of Triumphs that are either too short or the ass end is way too long, so we wanted to make one that sat perfectly to the dimensions we like. We painted the mystery wheels black, then polished out all of the ribs. They look sick up close. Everthing else on the bike is a stock No School Choppers part, or something we hooked up from Kyle at Lowbrow Customs. Ivan bought the bike within days of finishing it, so we're pumped on building more bikes in the future.

With that black paint job, the wheels look like early 80's yamahas. Rest of the bike looks pretty good too, kind of reminds me of baltimore kyles.

Sweet. Cool to see a nice blend of American, British, and Jap parts used so well together.

saw this sell on ebay it got a decent price I dig everything but how close that chain is to the oil tank ... pictures maybe deceptive but it looks like a chain slapper from the pictures

Commented on 10-14-2010 At 01:44 pm

Sick ass triumph guys! Nice job.

Commented on 10-14-2010 At 02:23 pm

frickin sweet bike! ... those wheels have to be Kawasaki. they are similar if not identical to the ones on my '85 454ltd

Commented on 10-14-2010 At 06:00 pm

I'm agreeing with KZ on the wheels after looking at some mags I have here. My 82 honda has 5 double spokes and my 79 xs has 7 double spokes. I have some pix of a 80 kz440 and they are identical- 7 single spokes and a drum rear.

Looks sick Craver. Nice and clean. Dig it!

Commented on 10-18-2010 At 12:41 am

like the wassell tank look

Commented on 11-4-2010 At 10:28 pm

oh it is a chain slapper, oil leaker, among other problems! My buddy bought this bike at a decent price! Now he has a winter project to dump money into!

Commented on 11-16-2010 At 03:11 pm

Slick as snot on a door knob.

Commented on 1-19-2011 At 04:19 pm

Neat O Mosquito!
