LOL...I here you man! the term Chopper has been Bastarsized by the wealthy.....when suzuki came out with the M109 with a 240 stock rear wheel (I just threw up in my mouth a little bit) sorry back on the subject.I'm am and have allway's been a fan of the home built bikes...I would have to say chopper although I hate the terminology, because today a chopper is something you buy from OCC. So im going to say a "motorcycle". Mostly because I dont like to be profiled. All I care is that this thing turns out better than anything off the showroom floor and when I pull up to a stop light beside mister "chiropractor/dentist/lawyer" with his brand new soft tail with all the chrome accessories I can smirk at the stupidity as I drive away (hopefully with out stalling lol).
Yea I saw the skinny back wheel! i love the skinny wheel look on a choppper.. check this bike out with 21" front and rear....Maybe im just bitter because im divorced and poor and cant afford this M109 you speek of hahaha notice the extreamly skinny tire on the back?
Hi everyone, new to the site so I will start with some pictures of one of my current projects.

Not to shabby,
but rear brakes are nice when you decide to stop.
but having front brakes is nice when you have to stop.
Those wheels look great! What size are the rims?
I hear you there!! I never call my project a chopper or bobber for that same reason. A friend calls it a chopper because some things have been chopped off the frame. I call it a custom, project, or build. I should just give it a name so it can be called that.
It's like a front-wheel-drive drag car. The weight transfer is all wrong. I'll keep my front brakes.
