Custom Mini Chopper Information Site
www.minichoppers.info

During the past few years, mini choppers have become extremely popular. They have shown to be much more affordable than their bigger brothers and can be built in a small shop or garage by anyone with a few basic skills and tools. In the short time that these little bikes have been on the scene, they have been revealed in countless styles, colors, shapes and forms. Like the bigger choppers, creating a custom bike is not only a feat of mechanics, it is an art project as well. Style meets function and the result is a beautiful and workable machine. This web site is designed to bring together a collection of information about these new machines and to offer some assistance to the home builder (like me), including how-to information, links to parts suppliers, photos of home-grown bikes, and more. This is a great Father-son or Father-daughter project!
