This is, my good buddy, Shea's Yamaha SR500. It's what i consider a true chopper. A true chopper is when you take a stock frame and modify it, or chop it, in order to make a completely different looking bike. Some have bikes built on custom frames that are made to look like the classic chopper style, which is a custom, not a chopper. Anyways, Shea and I spent many, many late nights in Tommy's Garage fabbin and gettin all pissy at each other! hahaha! After some sweat, blood, lost sleep and a couple of ex girlfriends later.... the Thumper emerged! It looks killer, tracks straight, is a blast to ride and weighs around 250 pounds... the ultimate in horse power - to - weight ratio. It's a good bike that has led to some good times with a good friend.
