Fiend Bike

Josh Ford a good friend of mine use to build all the frames for Chop Shop. He however thinks motorcycling got way out of wack and left the industry. Some days I think he had the better idea. Today he is doing his thing on the D.L. Custom cars and bikes are still in his life. He built this bike back in 03? I think.

Sportster Hardtail

I am always seeing posts on forums about these, people always asking what to use. I will put in my two cents worth on the subject. If you need a hardtail for 79-03 or 04 and up talk to Pat at Ledsled. I have used one for a late model Ironhead and it was the nuts. It went on quick and easy looked good and worked good. Early Ironheads however are not as easy. The hardtails on the market are all very similar in price and look. I use ones you buy from V-Twin however the weld one versions of the kits are not as easy as weld and walk. You need to do a little fab to get the look and the strangth you want. Bolt on hardtails are easier for the home wrench but never look as nice. I sell all these hardtails mentioned above at my shop and am currently working on my own design. If you have a hardtail in mind for your sporty keep us in mind.

RIP Mexipan

Well I found this thread today on a forum about a bike that a known builder did that had been bought and now is being rebuilt. It is always sad to see someones hard work be changed. So in respect to Trent I have put up this link to see her in all her glory.

Ironhead over seas

These picks came from Rizky Rosianto of Jakarta Indonesia. Rizky tells me it is a 900cc Ironhead he did over there. check him out here

I have winter work booking in fast so if you need something done spring comes quick. Keep in mind we offer everything from service and upkeep to engine performance and full customizing. If you have an old bike you want to bring to life or a new bike you want to make your own let us know. Chop Shop Cycles works on bikes from all over the U.S. however we will pick up within New England for a small fee. Call the shop for booking 603-672-5619 or visit the site for more info.
