Here's a couple of pics of the Chopper II.
Not the best quality as I scanned them from an old 73 catalog
Someone here bound to have better ones.

Has anyone actually seen a chopper II in person or owns one? The trike on eBay in the chopper II box is not a chopper II based on the pictures and manual.

And as if by magic, the first time I have ever seen one for sale in over 25 years of collecting these type of things, poof, there it is on eBay. A Cox chopper II. Go figure.

Getting back on the restoration of two trikes. One was missing the headlight lens, so I cast a replacement from an original. Next up is the exhaust. I was able to repair a badly broken exhaust to the point where it can be used as a master for molding/casting.  Cox Trike / Chopper Restoration  - Speedometer Decal?  - Page 2 Small10

Nice job, @ckalkhof , on headlamp cover. You taught me something new. I didn't know such do-it-yourself moulding techniques existed. What did you use for the clear material, Epoxy or polyester resin? Who makes this kit to do such beautifully accurate cloning?

By the way, here is a way to shorten your URL. This eliminates your tracking information after the item number. It gives the same result with better privacy:

It garnered a tiddy sum of cash I gather because of its rarity and in such pristene condition. Shocked This Site Rocks!

Thank you!

"Nice job, @ckalkhof , on headlamp cover. You taught me something new. I didn't know such do-it-yourself moulding techniques existed. What did you use for the clear material, Epoxy or polyester resin?"

I use smooth-on crystal clear 202. Over the years I have tried many different types of clear casting resin. The 202 works the best for me - in thin castings - and doesn't turn yellow and is optically clear.

@ckalkhof , I added another quick question just a few seconds before you replied regarding source, sorry about that.  Embarassed However, a bit of good, I did a search on your 202 clear resin product and found:

Reynolds Advanced Materials: for Making Things®

This helps to explain how you casted the mould to make the clear lens. Thumbs Up

I finally got around to making the rest of the parts needed to complete the two trikes. The exhaust master for the mold was made from crumbling parts that I was able to glue and bondo back together from an original part. One trike had a good brake handle while it was missing on the other trike, so I made one of those as well. I'm at the point now where I can put everything back together. About time :-)

The stuff that is available to the home hobbyist is truly amazing. From electronics to casting supplies to specialty tools. It's great!
