In 2006 Jan took the opportunity to build this awesome Custom Chopper!! He started with a Revenge Cycle frame with a 40˚ rake, 6” down tube, and 6” backbone. The platinum air ride, with on board compressor, makes the meaty look a smooth ride. Jan put his ride together with attitude, to match the rear tire! He took his colors to Doug’s Creations and there they came up with a splendid paint job. Midwest Motorcycles built a breathtaking monster motor with a right side 6-speed transmission. As a finishing touch he added the one-off custom seat designed and manufactured by Gary Tyler of Chopper Chair Seats. This Hot Rod is now ready.
