   Building your first real chopper or maybe for the more experienced, building a bike simply and inexpensively as possible to knock around town on still requires thought, imagination and a modicum level of skill commensurate to the build. Keeping it simple as hell surely helps the chances of it becoming a finished and fun in its own way rider. Starting with an elemental old ride that is readily available and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg can keep things in check budget-wise as you go deeper into the build. What you’re looking at here is a great example of something that somebody probably loves the living hell out of every time they see it and every time they ride it.

   When I lived in the center of Boston back in the ‘80s, it was an absolute pain to work on my bikes from a fourth floor apartment. Many a night was spent working in a barely lit street (no driveway even) trying to fix my latest mechanical malady or trying to install parts while holding a flashlight in one hand and a wrench in the other. I hated having to run up and down the stairs to get whatever tool I should’ve brought down on the first run, but didn’t. Ten minute jobs could go on forever, but I had no choice being too obstinate to take it to someone else to fix it. But, I soldiered on like the cheap Yankee bastid I am until the job was done and there were some mighty elaborate jobs that went on night after night I might add. The only part I enjoyed about the whole street-fix experience was collapsing in bed exhausted when the last bolt was tightened.

   Geez Louise, I’m still trying to figure out if Mr. LaFrance was roasting Back Yard Bagger’s Joey Hensley with yesterday’s article about baggers without saddle bags or was he just asking a question? What he told me was that he was just raising the question to see what readers think and that all sounds good, but he’s a shifty kind of guy so I’m still undecided. But, I thought I’d take a different take by showing a bike (a very nice bike!) that Joey and his crew built that takes Back Yard Baggers to a whole different playing field.

   T.D. Ward has his own view of what he likes built into every bike he builds regardless of what’s hot and what’s not. He builds them the way he sees them and he builds them the way he likes them. A few years ago, bobbers became the newest hot commodity (before baggers took over) and most people sorta drifted away from fat tire customs you saw all over TV for the puppy-like cuteness and riding fun of bobbers. Bobbers of the day featured small-inch engines and small tires and a whole lot of simplicity. But, as you can easily see, Mr. Ward put his own twist on what he felt bobbers could and should be.

    Well we’ve finally come the third part of our coverage of the unbelievable custom bikes at the Charlotte Easyriders Bike Show and I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did taking photos of them. Honestly, the builds just keep getting better and better from design and quality standpoints and I don’t know how the builders will top themselves, but they always do. Just when you think you’ve seen everything, there’s another custom bagger or bobber or modified Harley that blows your mind. Be sure to check out my photo gallery and see for yourself.

   The simpler things are, the better I like them. When it comes to motorcycles, I like my bikes quick, fun, comfy, rideable, and reliable with mechanical improvements taking precedence over cosmetic. Now that could all be a mater of taste, finance, or laziness or possible a combination of all three. For instance, if you take this very, very lovely bike built by Steve Studstill, service manager at Biker’s Dream of Atlanta, Georgia, that Mr. Cofano shot at the Ultimate Builder Show in Atlanta, it’s got a lot of what I really like in a custom bike and a whole hell of a lot more too. But, just because Steve could take this baby to a mechanical and cosmetic level I can’t personally comprehend doesn’t mean I don’t like, appreciate, or lust after something this finished and beautiful. I can dream, but I’ll never admit how much I like just looking at this thing – at least not to myself.

   Love it, love it, love it. Probably not the most professional way to begin an article about a custom bike, but that’s what was running through my head when I saw this hot rod/bobber/café Sportster. This bike was a collaboration between Chris Garrison of CG Customs in Buford, Georgia, and W.T. Customs and Fabrication in nearby Flowery Branch, Georgia. The end result of this cooperative creation was good enough to have just won second place at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Atlanta. And, more importantly to me, a little place in my heart for just being such a cool bike.

Everybody’s got a style of custom bike that pleasurably hits all the right notes in about two or three nanoseconds after seeing it. Maybe for you it’s a bedazzled bagger or a built-up musclebike or a long and low showstopper or whatever, but for me it’s a bobber with vintage vibes and metal work to kill for. Hey, now that I think of it, that’s a good description of our Panhead bobber feature bike built by Yaniv Evan of Powerplant Choppers in Hollywood, California.        Some builders just seem to have that one-with-metal feeling that allows them to appreciate and work and rework every single piece of a build until there’s harmony in all the chaos. The Japanese builders are famous for their interpretation of American V-twin customs and Yaniv seems to have their aesthetic DNA running through his veins too.
