Luxury Chopper Chair. No Helmet Required.

Chopper culture is invading our homes. It’s not the 1st time I see home decoration inspired by our lifestyle, but when CJ Hanlon of Guilty Customs sent me this picture of this chopper chair, I realize one more time how much our art is influencing our society. But first a warning: this chair is going to furnish no more than 50 homes because it’s a limited edition. Also because the price is the one of a nice motorcycle. It is conceived as a collectible, an object of design art and desire. But it’s worth it. Look at the craftsmanship of the “GothRod” chair (great name). As good as what you can see on the top custom bikes Traditional Springer suspension allows the pivoting seat and back saddles to move seamlessly with the “rider”. CNC machined chrome custom parts. Skull-topped shifter drops down. Folding out foot pegs for that laid back cruiser feel. TIG welded steel frame to with custom paint. Wet Black urethane paint, hand pin-striped in red and ivory. Hand-carved leather saddles. Etc. This masterpiece was designed by Gene Gordon and you can admire the pictures at Chopper Chairs..

    I just received an e-mail from Tom Zimberoff referencing the appearence
    of my Chopper Chair on your blog. I’m glad it’s getting out there, but
    I need to correct you on two points and hope you can make these corrections
    on your blog ASAP.
    The chair was designed by me, Gene Gordon, not Don Chadwick. I once worked
    for Don, as my website, http://www.chopperchairs states. Thanks for covering my
    work and for making the corrections. I’ll keep you updated with new stuff.

    While still on your cool blog, I want to give credit to our friends, Tony and
    Maryanne of Hidecore Leather. They do the extraordinary hand-tooled and laced leather work on the GothRod.

    They always seem to hit the right note between raw and refined, and manage to
    surprise you with even more than you’re expecting.

    Their work has graced two recent Discovery Build Off winners, both bikes by Trevelen’s Super Co Customs here in LA.
