All of Americans best Classics, Chopper, Bobber and Customized or hot rod Baggers as photographed by Buck Lovell.

  A CHICA CHOPPER  DA BLUE SHOVELHEAD  About ten or twelve years ago I photographed this “oh so traditional” Shovelhead Chopper built by Chica Custom Cycles in Huntington Beach, California. Dual upswept mufflers dump burnt exhaust gases and noise right at window level to annoy cage driving squares, just as they were designed to do.

IRONHEAD WORK OF ART PERRY DECOYS 1970 HARLEY-DAVIDSON XLCH While many Harley-Davidson Big-Twin riders consider the Harley-Davidson Sportster not worthy of their attention, this Chopped XL looks better by accident than many custom Big Twins do on purpose.
