Back in da Days

Back in the days when you were not considered a biker if you did not ride a chopper. Now everybody is a biker and only the ones on choppers are called differently, they are TWO PERCENTERS!

Want to be different? Build a chopper and ride it and show your two percenter patch to the world! And hey Yvon, thanx for sending this excellent pic.

Winterprojects

Cool Knuckle project by Rico Fodrey from the Sinners ( ya know, those guys who had a TV show years ago). Rico visited the Rogues in Opmeer once so we still stay in touch a bit. He sent us a lot of photos of projects he is or was working on. Keeping that CHOPPER spirit alive.

About the project on photo:Love it that he did NOT try to keep it period perfect. Nothing wrong with building period perfect bikes, in fact it can be big fun but doing it differently is great too.

Jockey shifting, Suicide Clutching

There aint nothing more cool looking than a biker on a chopper, shifting with a jockey shift.  The words alone already sound cool. And what about suicide clutching? Sounds and looks even more cool. And you know what? As soon as you got that foot clutch set up right it is even fun to do too!

We had quite some guys in the club who used to shift like that and still have few now.

On photo: Steel City Choppers, from Chicago, if I remember well. Could also be from Detroit or something, correct me if I am wrong (the power of the blog, you know, blablabla)
