Chopper motorcycleThe motorcycle Choppers, also known as Custom motorcycles, appeared in Post-War America. American soldiers fighting in Europe were used to drive the motorcycles built in that continent. When coming back to America, the former soldiers were not satisfied with the heavy and overloaded motorcycles that Harley Davison and Indian had to offer. For that reason they decided to modify the industrial models so they can have the bike they wanted. The term «chopper» comes from the word «chop». The procedure had a simple logic: chop and remove from the bike every unnecessary element adding weight and discomfort. The first steps were to chop parts of the chassis, such us fenders, and remove the big headlights and seats. With the progress on the chopper technique, choppers started to make deep modifications. Among the most evident changes we can mention are enlargement of the rear wheel, adding of a frontal wheel that is smaller and narrower, the typical handlebar enlargement, removal of the windshield, smaller seats, moving further away the frontal wheel forks, and reduction of the gas tank size.

With all the practical modifications, the chopper motorcycle has become a bike with unique esthetics within the motorcycle world; not only that, each chopper motorcycle is unique within the field of choppers. The handmade nature of the procedure makes this bike unique and personal. However, throughout time choppers designers and specialized mechanics that transformed the motorcycles started to appear. That way, it was not necessary for the owners of the bike to make the modifications themselves; they could get them done by someone else. The famous Arlen Ness was one of the first designers to design choppers to order.

Many choppers only accept to design Harley Davison motorcycles, and they exclude the rest of the brands. However, this does not happen usually. Many choppers work with any bike brand since they consider that an industrially produced vehicle is not important, and they are only personally in charge of making good designs.

Chopper motorcycles are being paid attention again since the series «American Choppers» is on air, in People & Arts Channel. In this series you can see the whole process of how an industrial motorcycle is transformed into a chopper.

As you can imagine, most of the chopper motorcycles are very powerful and strong, since originally ?and generally choppers do not modify the mechanical part of the bike ?they are produced by big motorcycle companies that want to build powerful and fast vehicles. As an obvious example, many chopper motorcycles are built based on the famous Harley Davison, whose main features are their power and strength.

Chopper motorcycles are a good choice for personal intervention fans, or for those who want to have a vehicle that nobody else in the world has. Motorcycle choppers, if they are sent to be redesigned, end up being pretty expensive because you not only have to pay for the bike but also you should pay for the entire job done when redesigning it.
