For a lot of builders there’s the dilemma of whether they build a custom bike to only win shows or build a bike to ride the hell out of on the street. Somehow it’s gotten to the point where trying to combine the two approaches into one bike won’t get you much of winner or a rider. Compromise can be a killer on both deals and that’s probably why most builders wouldn’t bother to try and make a rideable show bike. But, a few builders wouldn’t accept less than a real deal motorcycle even if it’s meant to be ogled by show goers and be a serious award contender. Will Ramsey of Faith Forgotten Choppers in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of those few and his bike called Dead at 19 proves that you can have your cake and eat it too.
