Italo Sacro Chopper

If I  didn’t tell you that this chopper was built by an Italian shop you would not guess. Maybe the spaghetti twisted frame down tube would be a hint.

Joke aside, BCC Venezia recycled a 1973 Harley Shovelhead motor and 4-speed tranny equipped with a suicide clutch, and like many in the industry used an after market rigid frame that they modified to add their own twist (pun intended.) The Indian style leaf-spring front end, the Bomb oil tank and the colored rubber grips also belong to today’s chopper must install list. So, what’s different about “Sacro Chopper”? Not much except that it was built in Italy on a small budget, and that it demonstrates the influence abroad of the American Custom Scene. BOCC Custom Cycles (photography Horst Roesler)

    Clean and “light” looking probaly a hoot to ride as well as show. I like the blue paint on gas tank tie-in with blue hand grips. I always like to see tie-ins. Nothing worse than say yellow hand grips that don’t match the yellow paint on the tank.
    Great job guys.

    excellent looking bike from the headstock back. the front end just doesnt match the bulky rear end or general flow of bike.

    throw a smaller tire on the rear and its one hell of a custom.

    ride on
