Biker Legend, Mondo Porras – The Godfather of Choppers
Revered as the “Godfather of Choppers” by many of his peers, Mondo can look back at an illustrious career in custom bikes as very few can. From judging and putting on bike shows worldwide, to television appearances and hardcover books, his story is as unique as the man himself and his name as instantly recognizable as the long, low and lean bikes Denver’s is most known for. Of course, it wasn’t always just “Mondo.” In fact, during the early days, back in the sixties when he began his career at Denver’s Choppers in San Bernardino (commonly referred to as Berdoo),…

Bitchin’ Big Wheels for Baggers
We Check Out Metalsport Inc. There are some companies whose products can really add an outstanding custom look to a bagger, yet most riders don’t know much about them. Metalsport is just such a company; they make super sharp looking large diameter billet wheels. Granted there are other people that make large diameter wheels, but only few do it like Metalsport; their billet wheels are true one-piece creations. Having seen their wheels on many custom bikes, we decided to give you a close-up view of just how they make them. Located in a rather non-descript building out east of Los…

Fresh from the movie Rough Boys and soon in your garage! When biker Blues musician and filmmaker Charlie Brechtel was coming up with the idea of doing the movie Rough Boys, he had a brainstorm that involved spicing the biker movie up with a side plot involving a long lost golden chopper.

But then the movie’s executive producer, Dennis Sanfilippo asked Charlie, “Who’s gonna build this special chopper?” That’s when I made a few well-placed phone calls. First…

Inside Harley’s Milwaukee-8 Big-Twin – Finally, A Better Oiling System

Inside Harley’s Milwaukee-8 Big-Twin – Finally, A Better Oiling System
If Harley’s Twin-Cam powered bikes had an Achilles heel, it was the motor’s oiling system. During the twenty some years that it was produced, a lot of people looked into and worked on this problem. Most of the attention was directed at the oil pump, its pressure relief valve and the mounting plate. Harley’s Screamin’ Eagle performance division, and more than a couple of aftermarket companies, developed hi-volume oil pumps and hi-flow cam plates that featured adjustable oil pressure regulator valves, other companies came up with regulator valve modification kits, some of which worked, while others didn’t. In designing the…

Ride your own Ride – Nefarious James
Well, October is upon us and thank goodness for that. It means 2020 is going to come to an end soon. Not soon enough if you ask me. Along with October comes Halloween and maybe Biketoberfest. Love Halloween. This year everyone has a costume. Just don’t wear a mask. Bad joke I know, but it seems appropriate. With that said, I want to comment on the goings on I’ve been seeing lately. There are way too many accidents/incidents involving motorcycles and even worse with fatalities. Snow birds are starting to flock our way and it’s that time of year to…
