I was at Stamford BH yesterday getting a new 250 Avon put on. While there, I salivated over the three BH choppers . Especially the black chopper. No side covers, wiring hid in the spare fuel tank, extended front end, custom handlebars- wish I had brought my camera! Those guys do top notch work and if you want, they can "chopperize" your BH for ya!
The 3" pulley setup looks friggin awsome and eventually I want to get a setup for my BH. I also like the look of the radiator without the fan shroud plus the chromed side engine guards (which are bolt on ). The Boss also looks better without the side covers. This way the mechanicals show and you can detail paint them. You can also hide the electricals such as the fuse box, fuel pump ect into a cut out empty spare fuel tank (under the seat)-just make sure that you have the pingel with reserve switch on your regular fuel tank.

Stamford does awesome work! I will be sure to bring my camera ... I need new rubber both front and rear - front tire is BIGTIME cupping and I keep the pressure right up at 48PSI!

Did you have to call ahead to make sure they had the tires or do they stock them? I'll probably call anyway so they can schedule a time that won't put them in a rush. Now just to figure out when I can get down there!

Hi Don!
Yes, you better call them and make sure they have the tires. I know Debbie said she only had one 230 Avon left, but was ordering more. Don't remember what size tires you have, but a call couldn't hurt. Guess you're not going to Marcus Dairy eh? Pretty long ride for you.
Take care Pal!! :D

Unfortunantly I will be out of town this weekend, leaving Saturday early morning and gone for a week. I have been down the Dairy before - you just never saw me because I had one of those "little" Flat6 motorcycles (even if it is blown)! :D Wish I could make it but it will have to wait :cry: ...


I figured a call would be best - just to be sure. I thought a call would be good idea because I know Bruce, Kevin and Debbie well enough that they will drop EVERYTHING even if they don't really have the time! Great people, great shop! I am debating on sticking with the AVONS or possibly a switch to the Metz's ... I'm kinda partial to AVON and after hearing Eliot's opinions/rating of the Metzlers I'm a little hestitant too!

Enjoy the Dairy, hope the weather is good for you all. We have to get a Boss ride together sometime ... bunch of us around the NE area and some really good roads too!

Don,
You don't have to tell me how good they are! Bruce waited at the shop for 3 hours for me to get down there to get my radiator replaced, when I had my little "incident" in New Hampshire....On a Sunday no less!! I'll say
"Hello" for ya! :D

Just Groove that 230 rear like Don Blixt is doing and you'll love it. I'm just not willing to take a chance with tires and I can tell you the grooved Avon works great in the rain and, believe me, I've had a ton of experience with it.

Milos - the side covers and radiator shroud was the first thing to get deep sixed on my Boss Hoss three years ago. The tranny is a thing of beauty why hide it. Also every Boss looks exactly the same with those side covers on. I love the added rake they put in their frames. Raking the frame will be my winter project this year. I think Stamford by far builds the only true custom chopper style Boss Hoss out there, all the rest just do the paint thing on a stock Boss (not that they aren't nice bikes) . They are also some really super people to deal with, not afraid of spending time with you and talking.

FastEddie, did you also hide your wiring when you nixed

those three covers? Stamford BH hid the wiring on those three BH choppers. They placed them inside the spare tank under the seat-a real neato idea. You can also hide the fuel pump and other relay and whatever else in that tank.
I just removed the radiator cover and spent 2 hours polishing the radiator and dang does it look good. Not chrome but shiny as heck! Why hide that piece of shiny stuff?
My next step is gonna be to remove the side covers then hide all the wiring into the tank under the seat as Stamford BH did. It looks like a long job but I have no problems when it comes to rewiring. Then paint the trans and finally get the 3" pully setup. That will look awsome!
And I agree, why hide the trans and other mechanical stuff that in themselves look awsome.
