Thinking about that biker build off and it occurs to me that all of these build offs are about choppers. Why don’t we see more shops building standard bikes or sport bikes? If you are going to do a chopper, at least do something different. Choppers seem to be the rage right now and they get lots of coverage in the media but there have been some great examples of custom built motorcycles over the years where parts gets mixed and matched and Cycle World magazine has regular features of American Flyers that cover a lot of diverse territory. One of the most beautiful bikes I’ve ever seen is a single cylinder Rotax powered flat tracker by Ron Wood. It’s clean, simple and gorgeous. I wonder if a TV show about building bikes without all of that yelling and tool throwing would get good ratings?
