Thomas Minor – Denver survivor long chop – survivor bike i found last summer and has since gone through complete resurrection.
Well I got the bike this past winter and have been resurrecting with the help of some friends. When I got the bike you could tell someone took the time back in the day to build a nice little bike, and then there where some signs of someone else getting ahold of the bike and trying to “modernize” it. Carbs where shot, exhaust was hacksawed too short, OCC wack forward controls welded on through the paint…..the list goes on, you’ve all seen a meth head bike before I’m sure.
Shortly after rewiring, having a friend build me new pipes, new carbs, new ignition, new pma, going through most of the bike…it started right up actually.
I started to ride it around my house and hit a pot hole and cracked the frame horribly, someone had drilled holes in the top tube and two down tubes for the gas tank and some really bad fork stops.
So i had to have Dave at Speedmetal build me a new neck and reinforce the entire front end of the frame. Also a slight de-rake….the bike was wayyy too low.
