    And, due to all that, most chopper "businesses" are the sort of business that other normal businesses won't have anything to do with, therefore NO SUPPLIER!!
    Sorry man! I have to disagree. I grew up in the chopper era! We made our own parts. Had to be a mechanic in those days to ride a Harley. You couldn't afford to take it to a shop. The Harley dealer in my area hated choppers! Thought they ruined a bike! Wake Up!!! Now the wannabe's are spending 50 grand on an old school bike that is not ridable. Orange County Choppers rides on!!! Lol!

      Man lot's of wild punches being thrown here for sure. If the dude is looking to get something done he most likely hoped someone close could part with a piece of 1" stock. Its his build and i along with the others on here have no idea of the application or use except for the brief description he gave us. You build what you can sell or use anything more is just a waste of time, space and money. Build on and be proud of what you have accomplished.

        I've got 2' of 1" round. I can mail it to you for $688.88.
        Or, I can ride across the country and hand it to you personally for $14,888.88.

        Of course I don't have a cool facebook page with a circa 2003 groovy height of the latest chopper craze name, so you might not accept material from me.

        Let me know. Or you can drive a mile or thirtyfour and buy some like a real business.

        Good grief man.

          I need about 18" of 3/4 inch black electrical tape. Just have one splice to do. I'd rather not buy a whole roll for just one splice.
          Any body got a real small roll you could send me?

            You guys are just mean. You're supposed to just email a piece to him.
            Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

              You'll need a special permit from Cal Dot to transport it

              Your truck will also need to meet CARB tier .0000001 regulations for transporting electrical tape.

              WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

                This reminds me of a situation not long ago where an employee kept complaining about a warning label on a cleaning solution he was having to use in an area that he felt wasn't ventilated properly.

                It did say not to breath it, get it on your skin etc and had the cancer warnings on it.
                So he went up the chain to complain and one from almost at the top said, oh no don't worry about that warning label, it is for California.

                    If you are NOT using this product in the state of California, it does NOT have ANY of these effects on you, ONLY when used in California. Something about a chemical composition change when it crosses the state line. So if your not in California don't worry about it.

                      I have a roll that small, maybe slightly more than 18" though, but you can have it for free if you come get it. I might be home by 5:30 this afternoon, so drop by and pick it up. If you start out early yesterday morning you should get here by the time I might get home from work. See ya then.

                        Just for "the record", the 1" round stock I'm selling (remember I ship, or delivered to your door, or at least thrown in the front yard) is not known to cause cancer in ANY of the 55 states, period. Not even in Puerto Rico or the Soloman Islands. In Lousianna you're on your own tho.
                        It "might" be "slightly" radioactive but whatever, so is the sun.

                        I do know a cat in California who was hit repeatedly on the head with a 1" bar, he's really not right anymore but he doesn't have cancer so there ya go.

                        Premium salvaged nuclear material at premium prices, that's us.

                          Coming soon, used but still slightly sticky electrical tape ripped to length. No job too small.

                          Delivery charges might apply.

                          J, your one stop shop. You call we haul.

                            Hmm, it really shouldn't be too hard to locate steel in New Jersey. Google is your friend.

                            Good luck!
