HogTech's Swedish Chop - Hot Bike Magazine

Swedish style choppers have some of the cleanest lines of any style of custom motorcycle out there, and this radically raked beauty from HogTech is no exception. Built to compete in S&S;' 50th anniversary custom bike show, HogTech rolled this bike off the stage with a Third place in the P-Series class.

The key to building a correct Swedish style chopper lies in the frame, and HogTech knows exactly what it takes to get a project like this off on the right foot. The frame is one of HogTech's Northern Spirit rigid frames with 49 degrees of rake, and 3 inches of stretch in the downtubes for that high-neck stance. Some unique aspects of the building of the frame include, tapered tubing and ellipse formed rear tubes. Leading the way is a 23-inch over stock Tolle frontend held in place by adjustable triple trees that can articulate from 0-8 degrees.

The sheetmetal was kept very minimal and sleek on this bike. Over top is a HogTech Cobra style gas tank, while out back a clean and simple rear fender that hugs the rear tire like second skin. HogTech Laidback hnadlebars give the rider a place to hold on while a custom jockey shifter with a hydraulic clutch helps the rider get through the gears in style.
