Readers Ride – Megan Rodgers’ Super Sexy Sportster Chopper
Beartooth Rally and Iron Horse RodeoLike you who are reading these words, Megan Rodgers of Charleston, SouthCarolina, lives to ride. Her passion for two wheels began thanks to her brotherin-law, who rides and builds motorcycles. Megan caught the bug and started working at a shop called America Biker. She’d like to thank Rich Worley down at American Biker for helping her live her motorized dreams.
Megan’s first bike was a T125 Suzuki two-stroke. That bike led to a Honda CB350 and a whole bunch of other bikes over the years. Her first Harley was the cool custom Sportster you are lookin’ at on these pages. “I’ve had it two years,” Megan tells us. “I bought it from Asher Driggers at Grifter Motorcycles and it was already chopped the way you see it here.” She did add a few things in the past two years including a new carb and filter, grips, bags and Low Brow pipes that she wrapped herself.
The 883 motor was bored out to 1200 by Jake Silver at Silver Speed Customs. “Jake did all the motor work and assembly and put on the new exhaust system for me,” Megan says. The flower power paintjob on the Sporty tank and rear fender was expertly handled by Leah Thornley, another woman with a love of motorcycles.
When she’s not bartending over at the Recovery Room Tavern in downtown Charleston, Megan can be found ridin’ the wheels off of the righteous rigid chopper. She says she is extremely happy with this bike. Who wouldn’t be?
