Chopper Frames, Hardtails and Frame Modifications

Chopperz specialise in one-off's, every frame or hardtail is hand crafted and completely unique. No two frames are ever the same.

I start the frame building process with a technical drawing, sending the customer a digital copy allows for any alterations they may want to make, once it is approved the build can start.

Working from this drawing the engine, steering head and axle plates are positioned on the jig. Frame tubes are then cut, bent and tack welded into position, engine mounts and other brackets are also hand crafted and fitted.

All this work is carried out with precision and accuracy, ensuring a straight robust quality frame.
Having a fine eye for detail and design enables me to create a frame with nice lines and dare I say, a thing of beauty.

Depending on its complexity a One Off Custom Chopper Hardtail Frame takes between 40 to 80 (occasionally more) hours to complete. In a year I produce around 20 unique custom frames and hardtails.

I am currently (Feb 2014) taking orders for delivery in approximately 12 - 14 weeks.

I have put some frequently asked questions, and more info about frames including prices in a section below the photos.

Below are some example of previous work

I have divided this into 3 sections; One off Chopper Frames, Weld on Hardtail's and Various Frame Modifications.

What types of frame can Chopperz build?

Chopper Frames, Bobber Frames, Custom Frames, Street Fighter Frames and Race Replica Frames.

I designed my motorcycle frame jig to enable me to accurately build every type of frame possible, however everything has its limitations, and this jig is no exception. I have just not had a frame it cannot accommodate...... Yet!!!!!!!

In general I can build chopper frames with an extremely high steering head, any degree of rake, any length of frame and ground clearance from 25mm (1") to 300mm (12") or more.

In fact almost any frame design and style you want.

What types of engine can Chopperz build frames for?

You can use any 1, 2, 3, 4  & 6 cylinder engine, from makes such as: Triumph, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Harley Davidson, Ducati, and just about every other make and model that I know of.

When you order a frame or a hardtail.

I might require some basic measurements from you: the size of the wheels, front fork length, ground clearance required. From these sizes I can prepare a scaled drawing of the purposed build for your approval.
I can also work from pictures of bikes that you like the look of.

The Build & Materials.

I only use quality materials, suitably matched for the work they have to do. When manufacturing frames or components I tend to use the term "over-engineered" however this simply means built to last. I build sturdy durable frames as standard, designed and built to last a life time.
All welding, engineering and fabrication are to the highest standards of workmanship.

What I require to build your one off custom frame.

I only build one-of-a-kind custom motorcycle frames and hard tails, no two are ever the same.
I will therefore require an engine or cases*, or your old frame to make an engine jig from (Returned ASAP).
I've had frames posted from Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland, so distance is not a problem.
However the USA, and the rest of Europe, thanks for all the enquiries, I'm sorry at present posting to the USA and the rest of Europe is not viable due to the postage cost.
* I do not need: Triumph 650/750 unit engine, HD Sportster, and Yamaha XS650 XS400 engines to build a frame, since I have Jigs of these.
Please see the Posting A Frame Page for further information on how easy and cheap this is in the UK.
