Just saying, how many of those bikes do we need? Might piss a few guys off, but Jesus every other bike that was at the Street Chopper show was really close in terms of style to the next one. Bates seat, pillion pad, 18 inch rear, 21 front. Except one pan that was there with no headlight and stock split tanks. How far do these guys ride with that 2 gallon tank? I don't know but its getting over done, IMO and you know what thats worth.

Thats what happens when the editor wants to be accepted in the cool guy crowd. Theirs nothing wrong with that look. It's pretty much the practical/ classic set up. As for 2 gallon tanks who cares how far you can go, just make sure you know. I don't mind stopping every 75- 100 to take a little breather let the smokers smoke the thirsty drink ect. I know when i build my bikes i'm not thinking 5 gallon fat bobs and a cushy mustang seat. I think what is going to make this thing kick ass. What do you want to see in your bike mags? Long bikes will start popping up in the near future. I'm building one right know and i know of quite a few more.

Thats like saying "What's up with girls? They all the same, nothing but boobs and vag!" There are details, some obvious, some more subtle that make these bikes (or women) great. Ride what you like.

Don't get me wrong, I can dig the rare collection of anderson pegs, flanders risers, unity spot lights, mcm, superior, the list goes on and on. My point is it seems that if you dont follow that exact recipe, your bike ain't shit. Seems a little cookie-cutter to me. Is the point to out rare- part the next guy?

you know it,s funny you mention that i was just flipping thru the newest issue of Street Chopper and they had some images from a event in Cali and my first thought was every bike has the same theme , this style is getting hughly played out already . some of the MoonEyes stuff that was featured was more of it,s own styling when compared to the seemly carbon copy stuff that,s in style today .

I'm very new to choppers and as i was telling Jayco, i thought they were fuckin gorgeous especially the bike with the king and queen seat. i think the parts that were put together to make the bikes at the street chopper party were perfect. i can't speak for everyone but i believe the guys built their bikes the way they were built because that's what look good them. if i had half the skills those guys have i would build a chopper similar to the one's i saw yesterday just because i think they look beautiful. I'd definitely sacrifice comfort and mileage for looks. yeah i know, this is coming from a guy with 09 XL and RK shocks.

in the end it was a great party and i was glad everyone showed up with their bikes. even the Asian guy decked out in HD gear from head to toe walking around with chaps

It's pretty hard to come up with something that hasn't been done before. Of course if you want to see that in action, you can always flip over to the JJ and check the "ugly bike/ short bus" thread. there's plenty of groundbreaking scoots there.

I have crossed the country a couple of times on a rigid frame with a 2 gallon tank . trust me the tank makes the ride easier 70 miles pull over gas up and go.

With the Interenet, nothing is new and "original" anymore. As soon as someone rolls out a cool bike it's duplicated a thousand times. I think the big tire crowd were of a certain group. I didn't know ANYONE with one of them. For one, they were fucking faggy looking and two, they were too fucking expensive!! People who were riding those are of the Bagger scene now. As a matter of fact, The Horse board had a couple posts last week with some bagger type bikes with these huge fucking FRONT wheels. 30" in Diameter, they looked fucking STOOOOOPID!! (hahahaha) My guess is that's the next fat tire, ginormous front wheels.

However, that's not to say alot of the bikes in those pages, and even THESE ones aren't just carbon copies of what someone else did. It's just the way it works man. You see something you like and you make it your own. personally I don't really get the whole, "Period Correct" bullshit. Who gives a fuck. I'd rather buy a cheap ass seat that's comfortable then a "Bates Period Correct" one anyday. Who in the fuck has got 3-400 bucks for a seat, or a headlight??? Not people with kids and child support (like me), that's for sure!! hahahahahaha

04-12-2010, 6:07 AM
Oh, and as far as tires are concerned. When I'm doing 110 on the highway I'd rather have a tire that was designed in the last 10 years or so then a fucking Speedmaster, designed in the 60's. Yeah, they look cool but it's still old technology. I'll take a Avon Venom ANY day of the week.

The reason you see so much of this is because it is a timeless, classic set up, that is functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. It's not that it's "cool" now...just one of those things that won't ever be out of style.

To make a comparison for you fashion whores out there:
The style you just described would be the Levi's.

While the other billet barge, Phat Tire, whatever else flavor of the month would be your super sized Jnco clown pants.

http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/backwoods00/jnco2.jpg

Notice the cat in the Levi's is kicking it with a topless the chick. The baggy jean kid is probably carrying around a Hello Kitty backpack and making out with other dudes.

Probably not the exact same as the Fat Tire trend... Remember, no one actually built Fat Tire bikes for themselves, they bought them...


And yes, I run Avons, 21 front and 18 Rear, and a peanut tank... I get emails weekly wanting to know specs, details, where I got my tank, etc... I didn't start a trend, I just built a nice tight bike that I like... Others like it too and want to build something similar, thats the way the world works.... Now this other bike Im building, is soo damned ugly, no one will ever want to copy it :)


That said, Classic never goes out of style.... Lots of bikes now are throwbacks to the 50's, 60's and 70's..... We weren't there first, we are just along for the ride....

And if you sweat and agonize and turn your creative brain cells to jello and end up building a totally original bike that you and your buds think is the bomb, be prepared to see ones like it or similar start showing up pretty soon after! Nothing's original for long.

I was going to leave this one alone, but I gotta say. The wee tank I ran last year looked awesome, but I ran out of gas twice, and the second time wasn't funny.
Small tires never worked for me, but I can see the style. It all depends on what you use your bike for, cruising and partying, no worries. But if it is your daily mill, I would prefer to have gas, rubber and brakes. Now trash the thread!

There will always be trends and what is and isn't popular. So today's trend is "period correct chops", THANK GOODNESS. Those bikes are all beautiful, most with real thought as to their execution. Remember the huge fat tire trend? Do you want that back?!?

I think that that there are dudes that have been in this game for years. Decades. There are dudes (like me ) that have come into it in the last 5 or 10 years and still don't have much experience. There are dudes that have been here for 15 minutes. Just like fat tire, WCC, OCC or whatever, that has happened since about '01 we are certainly in the midst of a trend. Yep, Harley copied the fat tire and ended up offering a 200 (I think that's the widest). Now they have ads that feature flannel and sparkly helmets and offer the "nighster" and the 48 (or whatever it's called).

The dudes that have been in it for decades see all this and think, "here we go again", I see it and think, "fuck, prices just went up." The newbies see and think, "that's cool as fuck". Some of us will stay. Some of us will jump the next trend. Is it me? I hope not. I've met some great dudes, learned some valuable lessons. Is it you? I hope not, maybe you'll be the dude that helps me on the side of the road when I'm broke, fucked and confused.

But.....build what the fuck YOU like. You wanna go fast and handle?? Build it. You want the period perfect knuck? Build it. Love what you build, ride what you build...that my friend, will never go out of style.

Fuck em man, its all about riding in the end, i think a lot of people forget that. There are times like today when i wish i had a dyna or an fxr or a big ass bagger instead of my old shovel. A mans gotta have at least 2 bikes one for the road and one to look cool on around town.

The thing is this forum is advertised in mags and by people that are into these style of bikes! its really easy to not see these styles and not get sick of them just go to a and bike week and you will see thousands of the same wide tire, crome dome stick some tall apes and a new crome air cleaner,& vance hines short exhaust bike over and over and over! Its all a matter of were you go and hang out!

to me if you just bought a bunch of shit and bolted it together its not much different that any other fat tire, or bobber, or short chop, or any other fucking bike. its no different than occ just a bolt together custom. id like to see more guys cut a stock frame rather than buy one, id like to see more guys build a stroker than buy one, id like to see more guys take a piece of steel and weld it bend it and paint it black because chrome and powder coat are too expensive. and id like to see it all done with some sort of style. but you know what? all that really matters is that you like it or that you blow some minds with it.

I have only been in the "scene" since o-two and I ride an evo.I think that's its definetly a popular trend but it's way better than the fat tired bikes,because with it came the use of older engines on a bigger scale, all of the iron heads shovels xs yamas cb 550 / 750 all the others that 10 years ago you didn't see at shows much less ridden they were just sitting in garages and swap meets in pieces they were cheaper but most of them weren't running .One of my ridding buddies bought an iron head basket with a chopped frame about six years ago and you couldn't find a damn person that knew anything about it,much less would give you anything but attitude if they did.luckily the trend was starting to pick up because of the outrageous price of the cookie cutter bikes and people realizing they could do this shit theirselves with a little research.The wide tire bikes, I rarely saw on the road, lately it seems you see these bikes quite a bit.I am sure that in other parts of the country the older engines were more present just didn't see them around here is all Iam saying.mostly it good because alot of them are ridden and not trailered.

Nothing new here. Trends recycle themselves every 20 years or so. In 2030 fat tires will be back. In 2050 thin will be in again and so on and so on.

You can look at the bright side since all the fat tire fucks are realizing that style is fugly and are obtaining some taste.

You guys are thinking about it the wrong way - you gotta think long term when it comes to bike styling trends. I'm chomping at the bit for prices to hit rock bottom on some of those fat tire, raked out, blinged up Ironhorse factory "customs" so I can pick it up and use it as my daily ride. They're getting close to the $12-15k range around here, once they hit $5k, I'm sold. I think it would be fun to be 'that guy' for the next few years, and then when those bikes are cool again in 10 or 15 years, I can sell it for a killer profit and ride for free the whole time.

I'm with this cat. My bike now is the way it is because it's what I could afford mainly, what I found at swaps, and what I could make. 2 to 1 high pipes. You bet, but with a single upswept cocktail tip, cause everyone has 2! (one was cheaper, duh!!!, and better performance with the 2 to 1) Skinny tank, fuck no. It had a sportbob on it that just needed a rear mount. I can make that. That's right, big ol fat ugly 3 gallon with a half dash and speedo. And chrome, ohhh shit,don't even get me started, anything I could find chrome that was necessary to the bike is on it. Is it going to stay how it is, fuck no! Plenty of changes to come, but who knows when/what. But in another 5 years when those fat tires are cheap as hell, I'll have me a big inch evo, in a chopper frame that I can cut up from there. I can make it skinny, or I can put a fucking semi tire under it. If I'm in it for $4k, who the hell cares. As long as it is MINE (my style), and I like it. I see the next trend being shorty bob tails, and cafe cowls on chops. Not to offend anyone who likes this, but do it now before someone chastises you 3 years from now for doing what everyone else is doing. Like this guy, especially with the luck I'm having lately, I wouldn't mind having a second later model bike to ride, well.... on days like today where the weather is fucking beautiful, and my Ironhead is in the garage with a cracked case. Would I get rid of my IH, hell no. I got a lot of blood sweat and beers into that thing, and it means something to me. But I would have loved to have something else to ride to work today. Just sayin.... well, what everyone else is saying. Ride/build to your style and what your abilities are. That's always cool.

I don't give a damn if someone likes it or doesn't, but I'm always open to intelligent constructive criticism.

I think the scene is getting stale, and it sucks that I can't wear Pendletons and SK8-Hi's anymore cuz I feel like a poseur, even though Ive been wearing Vans since 5th grade. Fuck it, I'm gonna sell my bikes and start a Mariachi Speed- Core band, anybody down?

Also I spell it "poser" cause I'm like that. Leave that extra "u" for the French. Although it is trendy to be foreign right now.....

You know what else is all played out? PORN! Remember back when you had to fast forward your shitty vhs tape past all the story parts to get to the good stuff? Now you just pop in a dvd and the opening scene starts off with some dude getting a BJ, then moves to him serving it up from behind, then moves to side mounted spoon position, then to reverse cow girl, always reverse cowgirl... Then he pulls out and blows all over her face.... Who really does this??? Oooo... I'm in this nice vagina.... Oooo it feels so good....Oh! it's getting close! pull out and jack it in her face!!! Not me! For me it's more like.... Oooo.... this is a nice vagina. Three pumps later it's, Oh no! Quick! grab a condom! It's getting close!!! Damn I wish my wife would go back onto birth control...

And the internet? Fuck internet porn! thats what ruined it in the first place!

I miss porn that has story... I want more content! I want to get to know the characters! Who are they? Why are they in this scene?

And I want it to be funny! I like a good knee slapper here and there. And I want to choose weather or not I want to fast forward to the money shot or not...

I don't know, Maybe there is still good porn out there... But here in Utah you cant get it through mail order because it's illegal to mail porn to Utah... LAME! I can get the playboy channel, I can order it pay per view or on the internet, but they can't mail it to me? WTF!

I guess what I'm trying to say is that the more you submerse yourself into something, the more played out it gets.

And the more you trade content for instant gratification, the more soul it looses.

Get out and start messing with your bike. Have fun with it. Some of my worst ideas still were cool to me because I built it.

Dream something up, If you cant build something I'm sure some one on here could help. I'm a machinist and I would love to help out any way I could.

Anyway, I'm going to go find some porn.

Dude, your dna will be worth millions!!!

Since this thread is already in Junk Pile I will share another pointless story.

Jan 09 I caught a flu that hung around for 3+ months and laid me out the entire time. I thought I was gonna die. Then I slowly got better, stronger, faster. (Orange juice is magic!)

2 months later the news announced a "swine flu" epidemic. People died.
I felt that I held the cure in my veins and I did nothing to help. That made me sad.

this is completely untrue...I have one bike..it is a rigid sporty with evo power...i ride it alot and i ride it far...you my friend cannot be cool because of your bike unless you beleive in the dark custom and the secret handshake...this thread sucks...build what you like, why is this even a topic for discussion..my brain hurts

Nunno and Arby, Thank You so much for proving my point. Yeah bought the Dyna because I couldnt find an FXR, the best handling, performing Harley made, period. I'll throw up some pics for you guys to fire off on, but you'll just be proving my point yet again. I'm not running a a crapload of expensive/rare parts, so it ain't shit, right? Thank You, gentleman


You're point? What point? Oh and, no pics necessary. I'll just grab a brochure from the dealership.

I actually don't care if somebody rides a bagger, a chopper, a stock bike or some piece of clone garbage like Big Dog, Victory or one of them other johnny-cum-lately companies. But if your'e gonna spout off about who's style of bike sucks and who's doesn't, you probably shouldn't do it from the seat of some entry level, bone stock bike that you didn't build or infuse any creativity into. It reeks of low breading and shows a total lack of originality. Other than that, you got a nice long thread going so if that was your true hidden adgenda I'll give ya credit there.

I agree with the old man that posted above this one.
Fat tires were and are a mistake, unless you like to ride in a striaght line or park your bike in front af the bar or at the show so people will say," my goodness tha motorcycle's back tire is Fat!!"
If that's what you like so be it. If it's a stylie you like, run it.

I could care less what anyone thinks of my bike. I hear "girls bike" from the HOG guys. I ride with some stock jap riders that give me crap for running Keystones and makeing my own headlight mount " that looks like crap , why dont you send it for chrome?" The chop guys dont like that my suspension is stock and I'm running both fenders. My bike is set up right for my situation right now. 3 miles of dirt /gravel road one way everyday. I need my shocks but none of that other useless crap that will rattle off. I havent built a bike but I am gathering parts for one. When I do the build it will be built to serve a purpose which means it will have neither fat tire or speedmaster tire.:D

Look,another fucking gay thread to go with the numerous other gay threads that have been popping up lately. It's like a bunch of people decided "Hey,let's take it up the ass and bitch about everyone's bikes that we see on Chop Cult". Easy solution,if you don't like looking at the bikes on here,or dislike what you see,get the fuck off the forum and go ride or go somewhere else. This shit is getting old. Maybe it's the new trend,to bitch about everything. Bitching on Chop Cult about the bikes on Chop Cult = Wide Tire garage Queens.

I also have some friends that have some 70's style bikes and I ride the hell out of my jap bike. The fact is trends come and go and you can always tell the band wagon guys from the real down to earth guys that ride because they actually love it.

most of the shit people on these sites say is "played' is done by like 5 guys per city, if you are lucky enough to live in a place with 5 bikes you like, and the shit they say is "gay" is enjoyed and ridden by even more guys, sites like this are geared to guys who want to share or learn how to enjoy a few specific types of bikes. maybe the focus should be on providing tips on what you know how to do that someone else may be interested in LEARNING. not in sharing what you think is unacceptable bike choices or riding habits.
