Party time with friends at High Chaparral. While most of the Rogues partied at the temporary clubhouse in Opmeer. Some went to Luxemburg to celebrate new years eve there. On photo Huig, Two percenter Slick, Chopperkingz member Robert and our chickies too. Where would we be without them…
Often when we visit High Chaparral a few of our local friends show up to drink some beer with us. So cool! Great fun each time! On photo Harley Brother Mike together with our friend Guscht who is the club’s hangaround now. The two of them showed up with three more brothers the last day of the year.
With a group of about 25 people we celebrated New Year’s Eve at High Chaparral. To relieve owner Ed and his wife Paula, who are always working their asses off, we all made something to eat and brought it with. We moved some tables and had a big buffet style dinner. After that it was party time!
After celebrating New Years Eve we told Ed we wanted to go home. ‘No way, we go do something cool, didn’t you always say you wanted to visit School Bar Atelier in Mecrin France”?
YES! Thanx to Mike from HDC Harley Brothers, School Bar Atelier opened shop allthough it actually was closed.
The ultimate respect from the town you live in! That is what you see on the mural in the town of Mecrin. This was painted by order of the city! Awesome. Don’t read the comments section, haha.

So on new years day Rogues, Harley Brothers and a Chopperkingz member ended up drinking shots with French Legend Jean Claude at the Boozefighters clubshouse in Mecrin! Best start of the year ever!
Hey Paula, thanx for the photo’s and you and Ed both for the great hospitality again!
Besides Highneck Choppers built by Jesse James and the ones that look like it, there are also a lot of other Highnecks in the club scene of today. Softails, Dyna’s and even FXR’s chopped the traditional way by cutting the stock frames, stretching them to accept longer forks. Chops mostly fitted with a frisco gastank. In most clubs they leave the back-end of the bike pretty much stock… This FXR here is being built by Patrick from El Forastero MC. These type of bikes handle better then stock.
We predict that these style of choppers will become more popular and that people start making them look more custom then they look now. They could start by making the back-end look way better then stock by chopping or making one-off fenders, lowering the seat-location, making different one-off swing-arms…plenty of ideas.
