Default Looking to get a bike chopped

Hi guys, apologies if this has been asked before but i searched and didnt find anything, except to talk to Chopper himself, but i cannot PM him and I dont know his availability etc.
So basically a friend of mine wants to chop his VT750. He got a price just for the welding off an engineering company in Dublin but seemed to be very expensive.
He is looking for information on chopping the front and increasing the rake. And info and prices on chopping the back of the bike. He has the parts needed for the back eg, saddle, lights and chop kit, he is looking for someone to chop the bike and weld the kit on.
He lives in Dublin but doesn't mind travelling.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. He will make contact with Chopper today. As for the legal angle and is and outs I don't know, and not many want to chop bikes. I assumed it was more popular then it is. I'd be interested myself in the legal aspect if anyone knows.

Far from legal. Manufacturers couldn’t even do it legally without a heap of paperwork. Ie document of conformity and such

Thanks Chopper.

I see the insurance companys do Custom bike insurance. It would be interesting to see what they say about it.
