So why chop a
perfectly good bike?...
Well, there are lots of reasons and
here are a few...
1. To quote a common 70's phrase...
"Riding a chopper is outa sight man!"
2. Stock bikes don't fit
individuals... you make yours to fit you.
3. Stock bikes are compromises and
don't do any one thing really well... you make yours to suit your
4. If you are into cruising, a well
set up chopper is definitely safer and less tiring than a sport bike
5. You are a unique person and you
like to be seen that way, so what's better than personalising
6. Chopping your bike is great therapy
(and cheaper in the long run than a shrink!).
7. Chopping your bike brings out your
8. Chopping your bike introduces you
to new skills.
9. Makes your missus happy... While you're in the shed, you're
not in the pub .
10. Chopping your bike stimulates the
economy where it is most important... the little guy, the motorcycle
shops, wreckers, your biker brother with something to sell etc.
11. Chopping and then riding your
creation is one of the sweetest experiences in the world.
"...so, Rob chopped his bike... It wasn't all fun,
sweated & swore 'til he got it done.
baby's a beaut & tracks real sweet,
Roar of exhaust & stretched out feet,
Riding his chopper... he's one happy boy
Wind in his face... TOTAL JOY."
