Another prime example of how most Swedish bikers used to built their choppers. This is a typical Swedish chopper. We had a lot of this kind of bikes in the club for a long time. Totally influenced by the Swedes. Today all over Europe you can find small clubs still riding this style of bikes. We know of them in Germany, Italy and France. There are not many anymore but they still excist!
Sweden, back in da days. When we started visiting the Swedes in the early eighties all clubs were into choppers. All of them! We visited clubs like The Hoks, the Sundbackens, Gamlestan, Mothers Freak, Gjutjarn, Freja Freaks and went to big parties of many others and our lives were never the same. We loved the bikes, man, how we loved them bikes! But also the long trips these guys were making on their chops, the fact that all clubhouses opened their doors for these chopper riding travelers and the way they had built their clubhouses.
On photo, our new clubhouse looking good in the autumn sun.
For those who do not know, our former clubhouse burned down. We are now using a temporary building at the same location. In the mean time we are building our NEW HOME. Thanx to a group of members and the preperations by our great building leader Jesus, we laid the roof on in just one day! PROUD!
It will take at least a year or more to finish the place and we are running out of money…well, we just have to make some at our show at Easter (Yes, we will do our RMC PAAS-SHOW again , we need the cash…)with our other parties and with selling our clothing and other goodies. Go to our online shop to check what we sell. This particular clubhouse will be not only good for us, it will be good for all our friends too. Everybody will be able to enjoy it!
Man, you gotta love this new blog. The SEARCH possibility is just da bomb! You can type in any name or anything and it will show the posts once published on this blog with that what your searching in it. We typed in: Schweik and got six pages with photos of our highly respected member who died a long time ago.
Still trying to figure out how to get these photos a bit bigger though…
Back in da days in Sweden: Micke from Denvers Choppers motorcycle club. The club had nothing to do with the world famous shop in the States but they are known in the Euro-scene because of their radical longbikes with coffin gastanks. Yvon send us this photo, he owns a Denver style chopper once built and ridden by their member Choppis (Right Yvon?)
