Absolutely beautifull chopper built by Red Soul in Seattle. And a cool name too!
'This show in Gouda with bikes from the Black Harleys and the Hells Angels triggered my interest for Harley choppers. I was just a young kid and after watching the show I decided I wanted to become a biker too' writes Zappa, ex-Comanchero and good friend of the club.
A Harley Chopper built by one of the Hells Angels. In the late seventies and early eighties the Angels rode these kind of cool looking bikes. Photo taken by Zappa at the Black Harley show. The now defunct Black Harleys were a very notorious club in Holland.

Rogues'bikes looked the same when we started the club. We rode Jap bikes because we could not afford anything else as eightien year olds and then mounted a longer frontend, a smaller gastank and we lowered the seat to fit one of those seats typical for choppers in those days. We will post some of our first choppers on this blog soon.
Like us the Black Sheep from Heereveen have their weekly winter-family-day on the sunday. Their clubhouse is located about an hour away from ours, so some of us payed them a visit this sunday. We met the BSMC more than 25 years ago (in Sweden of all places) and have been friends since. RECOGNISE THE SWEDE!
Good times! Most of the Heereveen Black Sheep showed up at their clubhouse that day. We have been friends with those guys forever and despite the fact they all talk funny we want to keep it that way.
Black Sheep and Rogues. Some of our women are good friends too
We made the bars for the bike Limp is building.
We made some mounts for the seat springs of Limp's new chop
Limp test-sitting his new chopper after finally having mounted the gastank and after drilling some holes in the neck gusset. Yeah bro, it is starting to look cool.
