Chopper

Anybody ever see these? I want one SO bad. They come finished or rolling ready for paint. Did I mention I really really want one?
(I hope I'm attaching the pic correctly)

a long fork and lots of chrome does not a chopper make.

Seen one during RAGBRAI in 2001 however it had multi speeds. A guy rode the whole route on it, hills and all!

Local chopper / tall bike 'club':

I attended the 'chunkatalon' last weekend and had a blast. There's more to bike culture than weekend road rides!

I forgot--learn to weld and build yer own! Takes some time, but much more gratifying than store-bought!!
