Chopper

Of all the bikes we have built and offer, when I just want to feel cool, I jump on a Chopper. It’s a bike that people know is cool without having to be told... The bike oozes coolness and does so without all the extra nonsense typically associated with the latest fads. 


Our Chopper Bike Kit is based on the same platform as our award winning 69 Chopper, which made it’s debut at the 2010 AMD World Championships of Custom/Production Bike Building, placing 3rd. It was also the Official Bike of Daytona Bike Week in 2011. We designed this bike as an answer to the choppers that were too long and clumsy. This compact well handling chop serves us Chopper attitude without sacrificing handling. This Chopper is also a great bike for taller people (typically above 6’1”) who like the bobber/chopper style but might feel a bobber is too small for them.

Complete Kit $15,950

Our base kit is comprised of the best mix of quality components at an affordable price. Like the bikes we build, each phase includes additional options & upgrades for you to choose from. We start with the budget conscious customer in mind and offer optional upgrades as desired.
