I WENT TO SC Choppers in Brendale, Brisbane, and had a chat with the owner, Picko. We sat down and went through everything. I had a bit of an idea of what I wanted—you know, the air ride and the width of the tyres, a springer front-end, and I definitely wanted a 145 ci S&S motor and a six-speed Baker transmission—and we just put our heads together and this is what we came up with.
Everything was made locally except the frame which came from America.
Mostly everything was custom-made by SC Choppers. The exceptions are the tank which was made by Little Mick and the wheels by Dragway in Queesland.
Picko arranged for the upholster. We told him what we wanted and I agreed to pay for it.
The painting was done by Mark Hanes from Hanes the Paint Doctor. I had the idea of doing dungeons and dragons, mixing and matching stuff, and while we were discussing it, I looked down and saw a tool box. “Well why don’t we put some rust effect on it,” I asked—and what you see is what he came up with.
The finished chopper is a beautiful bike and it is a very good ride too.
