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.
