2002 Harley Davidson Custom Chopper

Awesome custom build with 1800cc power and insane paint work; believed to have been built after O.C California team split

Not a huge amount is known about the history of the bike, but the vendor believes with some conviction the bike hails from one of the spin-off businesses 'AD Choppers' after the rather public split up of Orange County Choppers on their hit show American Chopper as seen on the Discovery Channel.

Whatever its background, it looks absolutely stunning, the depth and quality of the paint finish if mind-blowing, the lines of the bespoke frame and the detail is staggering.  Powered by a huge 1800cc V-twin in traditional Harley style it throbs a serious and very distinct beat with that huge rear tyre and exposed belt drive ready to lay some rubber down on the highway.

The history file is a little limited, it contains the V5C, which shows the bike is registered as a 'Homemade Cyl Nasty' first registered in January 2002 and imported/registered after its build in March 2016 since when its had four owners. We found a spec of the bike online from a previous sales advert, an old advert in the file and info on Pintrest, and we understand it is based on a stretched Harley frame and features a custom soft-tail frame with pneumatic air suspension offering hardtail looks with soft-tail comfort with 42 degree rake and 7inch backbone, strtech 230 AD Choppers tapered struts, 230AD Choppers swing arm with 4inch rise handlebars, polished S&S sidewinder 1800cc engine and S&S Super E Carb and K&N conical filter and two into one custom 3inch bore exhaust.

The gearbox is a 6-speed Baker overdrive transmission with dry clutch and hi-tech drive belts, polished wheels 18inch front and 21inch rear with 6 piston caliper and vented discs.

An invoice on file shows the bike was treated to a new Lucas battery in June 2020, new Dyna 2000i-P re-programmable ignition module in June 2016 and then a £1,308 spend in November 2016 on supply and fitment of a BDL clutch hub complete with front pulley and drive belt by 2nd City Customs of Bromsgrove. In addition we have 2 old MOTs and rider instructions from AD Choppers, who refer to the bike as "Draco". The bike does not have a current MOT, the last expired in September 2017, with the bike mainly seeing show only use.

Come and see it, its incredible and deserves to both be seen and used. What a piece of kit, or even art this is.
