Long time has past since the custom chopper building mania started. It’s quite inevitable that something follows. Yes, it’s here, the factory built Custom Choppers. It’s about the time to raise the standard of custom motorcycles with so many crap out there, I mean there are so many custom motorbikes built without taken the slightest consideration to construction, handling, performance and mainly safety that it hurts. Some of you guys out there are literally riding a fantastic looking lethal weapon that is dangerous to you and other road users.
Well, now you can have the Custom Chopper or Pro-street look combined with sound construction, great handling, high performance and high level of safety with the help of some U.S. based manufacturers. One of these are Custom Chopper Werks, Inc. (CCW) who are Federally Licensed Motorcycle Manufacturers and licensed by the U.S. National Highway Safety Transportation Administration (NHSTA) and further more are certified to meet the strict requirements of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Custom Chopper Werks, Inc. are also a member of the International Master Bike Builders Association (IMBBA) which is an organization committed to maintaining the highest professional standards for the design and manufacturing of custom motorcycles.
CCW’s main objective is to build high quality show bikes that are reliable and safe and can be ridden every day. Their production line consist of two types of Motorcycles, Chopper and Prostreet models.
There is no large stock kept, the bikes are mostly made to order. Te various options make it possible for every individual to choose the option that will make his/her motorcycle the most personalized and totally unique. These custom motorbikes come in a wide variety of colours or with custom airbrush paintwork as an option.
You choose the color and the style, than the artwork gets back to you for approval before it goes on the metal.
There are two different frame types which are all made by CCW and come with manufacturers VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). The chopper style comes with 8“ up and 4” stretch and the Pro-street frame comes with -2” up and 5” stretch. All frames are RSD (Right Side Drive) for perfect balancing. The bikes come with Ultima’s 113CI high performance El Bruto engine as standard with options to choose up to 127CI at no extra costs. If that wouldn’t be enough power for you then you can pay extra for a 130CI or even for an insane 140CI. All engines are EPA rated.
On request the bike can be supplied with possibly the best production v-twin engine available on the market today, the mighty “Patrick Racing” engine. The primary is a Trick Shift 3” open belt drive with an optional outside bearing support. The transmission is a Trick Shift 6 speed RSD (Right Side Drive) hydraulic polished/chrome
