Billdozer spends more time in the forum than I do. I know this because he points out dozens of cool things every week that I seem to miss. Usually bike projects and fab tips, which is the stuff most of us come here to see. With their sometimes cryptic headlines, many build and project threads can be easy to miss. In the interest of clarity and efficiency, I've rounded up some noteworthy projects on the old 33 for your reference and enjoyment.
Now granted, some of these build threads were started a year ago. I'm not one to judge: my own Spartankiller project is 15 months and counting! I find these threads interesting because the men behind the machines seem so earnest and enthusiastic. No shame in that.
SOKFab's Turbo Rebel
Photos and tips for clean wiring
Notice anything strange here? No American iron in the fire. What's up, builders? If I missed your project in the American Bikes and Tech forum, please point us in the right direction.
Of course, another great place to find inspiration on ChopCult is in the Greatest Hits forum. Here are some of my favorites:
Special79's cheap-o tungsten grinder
Boylecomm's polishing tips
Vnygra's homemade bike lift wheel clamp
Beaner's safety wire tips
And since all play and no work makes Jack a poor boy, this thread about the day jobs of CC members is also interesting. As you can see, there's lots of talented fabricators and garage shop gurus on the old 33. Thanks to everyone who lends time and talent to our forum. I know this grease monkey values every little thing I've learned from you guys.
Keep the tech stuff coming, and good luck with your projects this winter.
