The 1975 Sportster
Building a chopper is the hot rodding of motorcycles, the ability to build a totally unique bike using parts you either have lying around or find, or making parts from scratch is a totally life-changing experience. The greatest attribute of an old school Harley is their simplicity and characteristics – they can bring you so much joy and so much frustration all in the same day.
Roy’s a talented bike builder that thinks outside of the box without overdesigning a theme. His Creations are Paramount. He takes great pride in his workmanship. – JOHN PUGH GUNSLINGER CUSTOM PAINT
