Chica built bike For Sale.........

Renshaw is selling his "Roadrunner"...I think he needs the cash to buy my 68 xlch, but we'll see..


























Here's the low down...........

After alot of wrestling and at the same time sitting on my hands I have decided to put up for sale the bike I thought I'd never put up for sale.

This bike is a perfect example from the chopper revival in LA of the [pre build off & choppertown hype] early 2000's.

Chica built this bike for me in memory of my Mum [a yank] and on completion I rode it straight across the States to Choppers Inc in Florida.

Working on this bike, for Chica, were Johnny Chop, Kelson Kanno and Brandon 'Brawny Built' Holstein....all these guys are top of the pile when it comes to building bikes.

It is UK registered, taxed and MOT'd and ready to ride on demand. It has never lived outside and always connected to an Optimate when parked up.

The geometry on this bike is just right - its light, skinny and nimble just like a chopper should be - after Brawny left Chicas he built the 'Rusty Nail' based on this bikes layout because it rides...check out his site here.

The spec..

2001 TC88 [A] motor with factory 1540cc conversion.

If you are seriously interested email me on 23bricks@gmail.com. I'm looking for £20K and am only selling this to fuel my addiction to older iron... not cos Im going under - I know I will regret this down the line so grab this opportunity to own one of only 2 chica bikes in the UK...and the only one that that is rideable [hey Caz??].
