Custom Chopper Kit
By Iain Nicholson

There has been an absolutely phenomenal growth of interest in custom chopper motorcycles over the recent years along with an increased price tag that these custom choppers are being sold at!

A really nice looking motorcycle, complete with beefed up engine, 6-speed transmission and custom paint job is way out of the reach of the average Joe. If you don’t have serious wads of cash, a benevolent granny or a clean sheet on your credit file then there is probably not much chance of getting a brand new custom chopper motorcycle out of the show room. So what can you do if you are hopelessly in love with the chopper dream and without the financial resources to back you up? Well, why not consider building your own custom chopper, based on a factory standard motorcycle and get a custom chopper kit fitted.

You can convert your Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, or Yamaha Motorcycle into a Custom Chopper in one day, using tried and tested chopper kit equipment. Make sure you use a safe and reliable system to transform your motorcycle into a custom chopper using the standard factory frame.

An approved system will actually change the steering head angle on your frame without cutting or welding. Use a patented set of triple trees, bearings, fork tubes and offset components that provide the correct geometry. It has been stated that the most important aspect of a chopper motorcycle is the trail dimension because a motorcycle that simply relies on a raked or adjustable tree cannot achieve more then 5 or 6 degrees of additional rake before the trial becomes so small that the handling becomes dangerous. A chopper kit that is a bolt-on system eliminates the guesswork by providing your chopper with the same trail as the standard factory motorcycle.

What does this actually mean to the not so mechanically minded biker? Dude, it will look great & ride totally safe. This is a very important aspect to consider. Don't go cutting, welding or hacking away at a factory built motorcycle as this will result in a dangerous wreck and not that much wanted, cool looking, head turning dream machine you are really looking for. We all need to ride safe to keep riding!
