How To Build A Very Cool Chopper

Harley Chopper

Ultima Performance

That could be a good title if the people on the top photo ever decided to write a book. This is Conny Fransson and Elisabeth Johansson from Falköping. They were on their way to the big Harley Davidson meet at Gålö when I met them in Västerhaninge on Friday. The orange chopper (2200cc), is one of three Harley bikes that Conny has built. And he still owns all three of them.The customised fork on this one is 24 inches longer than the original. He figured that the bike had costed him around 270 000 SEK. Money well spent. His girlfriend Elisabeth works at Volvo Penta and is a very good mechanic, so she has been working on the engines together with Conny. The weather was horrible on Saturday, but I am planning to jump on my bike on Sunday morning and head out to the Gålö peninsula where I am hoping to get a few photos of the Harley bikes. I talked to a couple of bikers who had already been out there and they were hoping to see something like 3200 bikers there, sounds like fun!

Looks like something we would see on television here called Choppers. Paul Sr. and Paul Jr.
