Deep in a dark basement under an abandoned biker clubhouse in the San Fernando Valley lied a mysterious set of old original Street Chopper archives that were thought to be gone forever. The few crates of dusty manila folders containing massive treasures to our chopper past now reside under current editor Jeff G. Holt's watchful eye in Irvine, California. We at Chop Cult were lucky enough to persuade him to let us run a few as there were originally put together before they hit the presses so many years ago. Original photos, prints, hand-written spec sheets and carefully typed outlines for stories that helped shape a generation and a culture. Periodically, we'll dust off some of these old gems and bring them to you, kind Chop Cult reader. Our first feature is the cover story from Issue #1 of Street Chopper Magazine, circa 1969.
