WILL BIG BEAR CHOPPERS CLOSE SHOP?
TIME WILL TELL…..
Thanksgiving eve I received a phone call advising me that Big Bear Choppers will be closing up shop very shortly. The caller asked to remain anonymous. No specific time frame was given, but according to the caller Big Bear Choppers was taking deposits for motorcycles as recently as two weeks ago. The caller went on to say that no bankruptcy action was anticipated, but said it was unlikely that any deposits would be refunded. Since it's inception in 1998 Big Bear Choppers manufactured and sold a line of uniquely styled and constructed Custom motorcycles powered with S&S Evolution style or X-Wedge motors including; The Rage Bike, Venom, Reaper, and others. Fifteen different Big Bear Chopper models were included in the Big Bear Choppers inventory. I have been unable to reach Kevin or Mona Alsop for comment, but will give you the latest updated news when I do.
