was founded by Andrew
(Prof) in September 2005 to bring chopper builders and riders
together in a spirit of camaraderie and mutual support and to
spread the word about the exciting re-emergence of a 60's -70's
phenomenon... the old school and classic chopper...
Prof chopped his first bike in 1970
and rode his 1973 CB500 chopper until he chopped his father's
'81shovel in 2002.
Why we began...
Prof, had been "bumping into" chopper enthusiasts around SA
for a couple of years and most felt like they were the only one
"doing it". Many who were wanting to build a classic or old
school chopper, but could find little information and even less
parts. Prof's vision was to meet that need. Choppers
Australia was to be a service organization to chopper builders and
riders... information, support and meeting together...
Response has been far beyond expectations. Thanks to a
great bunch of chopper enthusiasts across Australia and overseas, Choppers Australia
aims are being more than achieved...
Choppers... Choppers Australia is focussed on
choppers... and is
about encouragement, information and being a vehicle for
chopper enthusiasts to share their excitement and to ride with
others of like mind...
Choppers Australia is does not have an
organising committee or organisational
meetings... just a bunch of chopper enthusiasts getting together to
ride and share info. Local groups organise their own runs and get
togethers. They send in their details to be put up on website.
We are Australia-wide and encourage and support regional groups to
get together as of mates and families for fellowship and rides.
Choppers Australia is
not about recruiting lots of members, cornering the chopper movement
or having tight control of its members. We are not a
patch club, but we do respect all motorcyclists and all clubs
whatever their choice of transport and choice of organization.
Family Welcome... We encourage the whole family to
participate and all our activities and publications, including this
website are proudly "G Rated".
Our website is for you

Choppers Australia is based in South Australia.
Throughout Australia we currently
have 100+ member riders of choppers of all sorts and ages. SA
and Qld are the largest with around 40 members each. A number of other non members also join in on our
activities. Queensland members have also organised a
numbers of runs and get togethers.
Chopper Runs... In SA we have monthly chopper runs
and bi-monthly shed nights. these activities are
not obligatory, simply there if you would like to join in...
Choppers Australia runs are suggested and organised
by members. In SA we have a Run Coordinator and a Shed Night
Coordinator who suggest events and the arrange them. However
Choppers Australia is all about blokes getting together and riding
when ever the urge gets them, so members are encouraged to meet
other members and organise their own activities. If they wish,
these will be advertised on our website.
The information, photos
and discussion available through our activities, newsletter, website and forums are shrinking the distances
between an enthusiastic and ever increasing band of chopper jocks

drop in on other club members. Register your
interest and if some one is coming near you, we will assist you to
offer them your hospitality.
Organised and individual rides...
Aussie chopper riders are often very
spread out because we are a big country with a small population.
Therefore we attempt whenever possible to connect chopper riders in
local areas and encourage them to organise their own rides and get
togethers. The website has a forum where you can organise your
rides and a webpage where arrangements can be announced. You are
welcome to use the forum to arrange your ride whether you are
a financial member of Choppers Australia or just a friend.
Choppers Australia members do get around,
so new members where ever you are will be visited by some one at
have currently organised discounts from
South Australian businesses to Choppers Australia club members on
Batteries... Chrome plating & polishing... Panel work,
fibre glassing & spray painting... Old school style mods & custom
handlebars... and we expect to have some more

some of these businesses. Members can contact us for further
