Guest post about Choppers

I'd like to share an article written by my friend Kiara.

Top 5 Best Chopper Motorcycles of All Time

Since the advent of chopper motorcycle bike design begun, there has been a high number of bikes that have been found competing for space in the chopper market. Choppers nowadays come in different styles and assemblies to serve different needs. There have however been some choppers, which stand out more than others. Some of them can serve as an inspiration for all the enthusiasts out there.

Anti Venom

This is one of the unique designs, that was the invention of Paul Jr. The design is an evolution of the black widow design from the same designer. It is a more radical design that takes greater steps in staying true to its theme.

The most radical changes that were done in the chopper motorcycle bike were in the tank and wheel design to ensure it was in line with the web theme. The tank was cut out using laser technology, to create a webbing design.

Paint job: The paint work was a unique Yellow and black scheme, that gave the bike some ‘venom’. The pattern and excellent finish completed the web theme look.

Athena Choppers

This was another radical themed design that won the Discovery Channel Biker Build-Off competition that was aired on TV. It had Long folks with handle bars that looked like the devils horns. This also gave chopper motorcycle bike a devil appearance in line with its theme.

Because of its design, the bike rides low and close to the ground. This has some appeal to those who enjoy the lowered center of gravity feel. It has enhanced comfort and rides low on the ground and makes it great for those looking for this kind of feel.

The bikes paintwork is also excellent for the targeted theme. It has fire orange paintwork with silver finish on the metallic parts of the bike. This enhances the devil look and makes it look even more aggressive.

Denver Mullin’s Chopper

This is one of those bikes that was the pioneer of the chopper design. The designer started building the bikes in the 60s and 70s, and as a result came up with this unique look built by the pioneer back in the 1970s. The bike had long steel forks attached to the wheels front springs. It also had the pioneer tank design that is common with many of the chopper bikes today.

Beautiful Loser

This is a modern bike with a uniquely sleek design that was designed by the Loser Machine Company. The paint work and ribbed fenders owes this bike the sleek look that makes it unique and eye catching. The paint is made up of orange and white colors that are carefully patterned on both the front and rear fenders.

The designers ensured that the paint work was flawless and uninterrupted by unnecessary patterns. The rare fenders and the tank were carefully chosen to make the whole design sleek and continuous.

Indian Larry’s Daddy O

This is one of the best chopper motorcycle bikes to have ever been built. Its unique design says a lot about the designer’s work ethic and about how he went about building his own choppers. The paint work is very detailed and makes the bike even more elegant. The tank fits in with the stripped down old school style. Larry designed everything on this bike from the tank to the frame and fenders. The result is that every part of this bike is well thought out and works seamlessly with the rest of it.

Even though there is general consensus among chopper motorcycle bike enthusiasts on what the best choppers may be, all such lists are subjective and sometimes depend on personal tastes. This list hopes to inspire you when you choose your own custom made chopper.
