County Line Choppers -
Pat Briggs has been working on
since he was 12 yrs old and it shows in his work. Even with the tiny pics on my
high resolution screen, the choppers here look pretty darn good. Motorcycles are
highly detailed, well worth the effort it takes to look at them. Be warned: if
you don't have at least a DSL line you're not going to be able to get the
overdone flash on this website.

Indian Larry Legacy -
Originally known as "Gasoline Alley" Indian Larry's company has carried on
the tradition since his untimely passing in 2004 as "Indian Larry Legacy". Now
fronted by Keino and Paul Cox, Larry's vision of a custom motorcycle line with
his unique styled motorcycles and parts continues on.

NYC Choppers -
Nick Genender started NYC Choppers after people started requesting he do
retro motorcycle conversions like the one he had done for himself taking a
Heritage and turning it into a replica of a 1958 Duo-Glide. Now in addition to
the Retro style bobbers that got him started, Nick now builds Pro Street,
Choppers and does custom baggers as well.
Orange County Choppers -
The TV Show "American Choppers" launched the mega career of these
building superstars. The Teutels; Paul Sr., Paul Jr, and Mikey are household
names and their custom theme motorcycles are recognized everywhere. Having the
pleasure of seeing a few of their motorcycles myself in person I can tell you they are
even more detailed in person than you see on the show.
Shane Gatto Customs -
Apparently business is good for Shane since his
website is mostly promoting the articles written about his motorcycles rather than
actually telling you what he can do for you, although I guess you could read the
articles on his Custom motorcycles if you can find them. I can't even give my
impressions because the pics are so small you really can't see any detail.
Hopefully Shane Gatto will read this and email us a useful description of his

V-Force Customs -
What happened to Vinny after he left
Orange County Choppers? Well Mr. Vincent DeMartino and Cody Connelly teamed up
to form V-force customs. It's a little too early to tell what kind of custom
motorcycles Vinny and Cody will be building as they only have 2 shown on their website
as of my visit, but they've already got the merchandising thing going. Hey fame
is fleeting, make bank on it as much as you can. I'm sure the discovery channel
paid them well for the show even if the Teutels didn't so I believe these guys
will probably do Ok.
