ABOUT – San Diego Custom Choppers

With my own casual observations, I believe that custom choppers are perhaps just about 1% of the motorcycle riding community.

We are that 1%!

Like myself,  I think all custom chopper owners have a great appreciation for art, as it applies to custom metal work, mechanical ingenuity and bringing all these things together with custom paint to create real eye candy! But, unlike normal art appreciation, these custom motorcycles offer their type A personality owners the unique opportunity to become part of the media itself!

If you’re reading this and do not comprehend the fact that when operating one of these high-powered machines, it’s not so much about the destination as it is the journey, just bask in the fact that your Prius gets much better gas mileage than one of these choppers.

I’ve been into custom choppers for most of my life. Back in the 60’s I was the proud owner of this Harley chopper:

    I watched the YouTube video on changing the oil on a chopper.
    I have an 04 iron horse legend.
    In the video you pulled the plug on the motor.
    So I did.
    Now I need to know how to get oil back into crank case of the motor.
    Everything I can find they say don’t pull the plug to the motor, but that makes no since if your trying to get rid of the oil

      Tom, thanks for the comment. It is controversial to pull the plug on the engine but there sure is a lot of nasty dirty oil that collects there. Personally, I didn’t do anything special in refilling the oil. I do always put a little new oil into the oil filter before I install it and also after new oil has been installed in the oil tank I let the bike sit for a while before starting it up. After it’s been running for about 10 or 15 minutes you should shut it down and recheck your oil level.

      Well, that’s the way I do it I’m sure some other people may have other ideas.

  18. Looking to buy parts for my 2005 Big Dog Chopper. To start with need the front (stock) foot pegs. The rubber part is falling off (common problem) Also need the front led turn signals (yellow) You take the lens off and pop the old out and plug the new ones in. Other chrome items I would like to replace. Any help would be appreciated. Can be contacted via email..
