    Really? Exhaust pipes, the oil lines look copper to me.

    I would not do it for a street bike but this is not a street bike.

    Pretty sure those oil lines are just plain old copper pipe. I think it’s a nod to the ‘steam punk’ kinda style.

    I agree with Swoosh, the workmanship is very good, but it’s like it was built by a bloke who’s shed was too small and he never got chance to stand back and look at the whole !

    I think the bike should be called “Irony”... race plates...!? He certainly has a sense of humour.

    Some people, including folks on this forum, build bikes to look at, not ride. I'm ok with that. It's better than letting them rot outside some shed.

    I have to say (and I think everyone who knows me, knows) I'm not a chopper guy.

    But...

    This chopper has some awfully nice features. I applaud the builder(s).

    This will take away the top prizes at many a show....which seems to be its intended purpose. To each his own I say.

    What I like about this bike is that the builder/artist recognized the inherent beauty of the Norton engine and showcased it very well. A lot of time and skill went into it.

    Oil pipes look like copper brake pipe sold as replacement brake part at most car shops, then polished up.
