Where Do I find Information on Building Choppers?

This is a question we get all the time from people building their first bike.

The task of building a bike can seem daunting, and while it would be nice to have a book that explains everything you need to know about building choppers, none exists. Oh sure, there are books on bike building, but they either gloss over the information so much that they are of no real value, or they're for a specific bike kit and not applicable to other projects.

The best place you can start to learn about bike building is to go to your local news stand, and pick up a copy of The Horse: Back Street Choppers. This magazine is dedicated to people who build there own bikes, and is a wealth of information for someone new. They also have a website at, which has some of the best technical message boards on the internet.

As far as all the specs you need, the old standard Harley Shop manual is still the best. Granted, they will not cover every single thing, but they do cover most of the important topics, including drivetrain, front ends, wheel spacing, ect. Also, many of the aftermarket manufacturers you will undoubtablely buy parts from such as S&S also have excellent technical manuals.

Huge Dealer Show Sale at Custom Chrome

Things must really be slow a Custom Chrome right now, because they're having a huge dealer sale. Most of the items are overstocks and closeouts, but there are some really nice savings.

For instance, select Revtech motors are half off, rigid frames for under $500, and tons of other stuff. I will be releasing much of this info in our newsletter shortly, so watch for it. Or just drop me an email and I will pass the info on to you.
