GarCo's 2011 Smokeout Chop Off Bike!

Larry started this project with the bottom 6 inches of a Shovel frame. Basically he just wanted all the mounts to be where they needed to be. The rest of the frame was built from that platform and is on its way to chopper glory. The tank is a mustang that after some serious modifications is slim, sexy. The frame will end up molded, the sissy bar is a vintage piece that Roadside Marty hooked Larry up with, the fender is flat and the forks are old HD narrowed by L.A. Speedshop. There will be a ton more stuff done to the bike, but for now here is a preview.

Larry had to test fit the frame and tank to make sure it was worthy. I know it looks like he is falling off, but he is really just lost in his fantasy of rolling down the freeway chasing down Bagger riders to inflict their due punishment.

Here's the happy hero after the baggers were caught and punished.

Time to install the new rockers on the forks.

Damn bolts are too long, but that is easy to rectify.

Damn! That beast is long!


  1. Looks like he's riding a rodeo bull in that first picture. That break the ol' bacon strip, but it's be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

  2. Holy crap, I can't write. *That'd break the ol' bacon strip, but it'd be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
