Custom Chopper Motorcycles
The earliest choppers tended to be based on Harley-Davidson motorcycles, at first making use of the Flathead, Knucklehead and Panhead engines – many of which could be found in surplus military and police motorcycles bought cheaply at auction. As new engines became available they were soon utilized in choppers. British bikes, particularly Triumphs, were also a popular motor for choppers early on. As the Japanese manufacturers began offering larger engines in the late 1960s these motors were also quickly put to use by chopper builders. The Honda 750-4 was the most widely used Japanese motor for chopper builders early on. Choppers have been created using almost every available engine, but builders have always shown a preference for older air cooled designs. It is rare to see a chopper with a radiator. Read more
Build ‘em and ride ‘em before the government bans them from America’s roads.
A chopper is a type of motorcycle that is either modified from an original motorcycle design (“chopped”) or built from scratch to have a unique hand-crafted appearance. Some of the characteristic features of choppers are long front ends with extended forks often coupled with an increased rake angle, hardtail frames (frames without rear suspension), very tall “ape hanger” or very short “drag” handlebars, lengthened or stretched frames, and larger than stock front wheels. The “sissy bar”, a set of tubes that connect the rear fender with the frame, and which are often extended several feet high, is a signature feature on many choppers. Read more

So, a person could come back and visit your site two or three times during the day but the unique visitor count from that same computer will only be one in a 24-hour time-frame. Read more
The Wedge Newport Beach August 2014
Normally, I just publish videos about San Diego California custom motorcycles. But, Southern California is the surfing capital of the U.S., and surfing is a sport just like motorcycling, They both provide an adrenaline rush, excitement, adventure and the possibility of serious injury.
So, when I heard that because of a hurricane off of Mexico, Southern California beaches were expecting huge waves, I researched the best place to check them out. Because of the direction of the swells, the undisputed location to be at, was The Wedge in Newport Beach, California. Read more
