Stolen from another blog, cool derake Evo chopper. A deraked chopper is something typical American. You hardly see that overhere. It enables you to have a typical stretched chopper look with long forks and all but it won't hurt riding qualities. Actually these 28/30 degree monsters seem to be the best handling bikes ever. In Europe the Swedes soon developed raked trees en combined those with radically raked necks which enabled people to mount the longest frontends and still have a good trail. In other words raked longbikes that handle and corner well. Most people up here do not like the deraked look but admit it is absolutely different! I guess we are just not used to it.
