2015 rigid chopper

Old-School New

Submitted by Deryl Ray

The design of this bike is reminiscent of choppers I built as early as 1968, though it is quite a departure from my first 1942 Knucklehead suicide-clutch creation. It’s a 2015 with a 124 Total Performance motor, with a Jim’s six-speed on a Rolling Thunder front end and frame. The wheels are Performance Machine, tank is Independent Tanks, and is painted by David Scotto. A huge thanks goes to my son Jake for all of the help with welding, sheet metal, and much more.

Pat’s Patina Softail

Submitted by Pat Tozzi | Virginia Beach, VA

My bike is a 1991 Harley Heritage Softail. I hand painted it with spray paint to mimic patina and then clear coated it. I also lowered the bike 2 inches in the front and rear and added a 21-inch spoke front wheel.
