Naked Chopper From Poland

When you think of custom bike building in Europe, post-communist Poland is certainly not one of the countries you think of. Bordered by Germany to the west, and surprisingly the only European country to have avoided the late 2000’s recession, Poland after-market and custom motorcycle industry is extremely influenced by the great German manufacturers and builders and is rapidly growing thanks to a very healthy economy. To my American readers, watch out. In the next couple of years, a crop of new central and eastern Europe builders is going to appear on the international motorcycle scene.

One of them is BT Choppers also called The Choppers Factory, the shop that produced this freestyle naked chopper appropriately named “A Bit Of Freedom.”

Barrier language limits this feature to what I can see from the pictures. Engine is of course from the Harley Shovelhead era but showcased in matte black from the rocker cases to the crankcase. Frame must be a minimum 5″ stretch with front end part of it and articulated by a leaf spring system running from neck to seat (how does it work?) Open belt system is signed BDL. Wheels are front 23″ in Avon 130mm /60 x 23, rear 20″ in Avon 280 mm /40 x 20.

    Interesting looking, seems that front end would work like a girder fork… hard to say how well it works but you would certainly feel everything that front tire does right in the seat of your pants!

    I love the freedom of customizing If you can dream it you can build it . Art in motion , it is amazing how the whole world has jumped on the band wagon of the chopper , who would have ever thought it 20 years ago, from out law bikers to main stream public and beyond . Great bike guys !!! ” KEEP ON CHOPPIN”
