History A cheap project bike I acquired for $200, the frame was raked by Ken @ Jack's Salvage and I did the rest. With a total of $1K into the bike (including acquisition) it's the cheaper chopper I affectionately dubbed "Nifty 250".

Upswept fishtail mufflers were swapped in for that classic chopper exhaust.

I dropped an inch off the tail for a lower stance. The frame was raked to 44 degrees and +7" fork tubes were swapped into the lowers.

13" ape hangers added w/Maltese Cross mirrors to further that old school chopper look. I swapped the end weights for some shell casings that fit perfectly into the grips & bars.
