by NorCal. -TPJ Customs-, custom bike builder Bryan Shimke.
There are plenty of big name featured parts -- among them, a Revtech six-speed transmission, BDL clutch, Pro-one triple trees and Performance Machine calipers -- many of the parts are the creation of TPJ Customs. This includes the air cleaner, exhaust, seat pan, taillight, gas tank, rear fender, oil tank, mid- and hand controls, and many other items. Kirk Taylor of Custom Design Studios laid down the very subtle charcoal paint.
Many of today’s top designers have been influenced by the unique look and style of New York City Choppers and now Southampton Motorcycle Company. With an eye for the artistic, Nick Genender and his crew conceive and build rugged, functional bikes that are as unmistakable as they are fun to ride. From high-tech choppers to the coolest old-school bobbers and with engine types from Knuckleheads to Evolutions, all NYC Choppers Motorcycles are handcrafted, artistic one of a kind masterpieces.
This photographic builder's portfolio of 'old-school' retro choppers and bobbers represents the meticulous craftsmanship by some of the top bike builders, customizers, fabricators, and airbrush artists. Top one is 1917 1000cc Henderson Vintage Chopper by Billy Lane. All above Zero bikes are crafted by legendary zero artist Mr. Shinya Kimura.
