About This Motorcycle
“Of all the bikes American IronHorse built, the Texas Chopper displays the most extreme geometry and appearance. Lengthy chrome forks are mated with a stretched fuel tank that reaches all the way back to the ‘solo’ seat. The choice of the high-gloss ‘ghost flame’ black cherry paint only adds to the radical look.”
Choppers have once been the province of a small cadre of enthusiasts, but they have since hit the big time. Thanks in large part to exposure on national television and cable shows, their combination of sight and sound has made them the equivalent of mobile celebrities.
But choppers as a breed are really not new. In fact, they can trace their heritage to the late 1940s, when surplus military bikes were stripped of unnecessary parts and given homemade paint jobs to become “Bobbers.” Bikes sprouting extended forks, stepped saddles, tall sissy bars, and wild paint schemes appeared in the late ’60s as “Choppers,” and the die was cast.
American IronHorse was a domestic motorcycle manufacturer that was founded in 1995 by Tim Edmundson and Bill Rucker. At one time, AIH was the largest factory producer of custom motorcycles. Their 224,000 sq. ft. factory was located in Fort Worth, Texas and housed the complete manufacturing process under one roof. Although most parts for the bikes were made in-house, all American IronHorse motorcycles were built with S&S engines and were assembled in-house. In Spring 2008, American Ironhorse ceased production on all motorcycles and many of the bikes are today sought after by collectors and spirited bikers alike.
Like a flesh and blood thoroughbred, each IronHorse has its own personality, bred at the factory to the whim of its future owner with the Texas Chopper being arguably the most powerfully seductive specimen who is appreciated as art, as well as functional mount.
Speedart Motorsports presents this 2006 Texas Chopper that has been meticulously maintained indoors for the consideration of any collector or enthusiast. This unique bike features a custom dark cherry red paint job with flame inlays and a powerful, ear thumping 111 cid S&S pushrod engine.
A galore of chrome effects and billet components are present from front to rear, where a gigantic Metzeler 280 tire makes contact to the pavement including forks, Gladiator wheels, lights, inner and outer primaries, polished chrome pulley, oil tanks, fasteners, braided cables, tall sissy bar, pegs, forward controls and so much more that would take pages to compose the full list of tis bike’s aesthetics.
A menacing chrome hyper charger air cleaner and a Dyno tuned Vance & Hines big radius exhaust system is further enhancing the already powerful output of 110 hp as well as adding several decibels of thunder.
The extroverted owner of this radical chopper would definitely gather more attention during the occasional bike night via a Chameleon LED Light system installed in the motor bay. The lights change through 7 different colors (white, red, orange yellow, green, blue and purple) and can be remotely controlled to cycle through the colors and either ‘flash’, ‘stay 1 color’ or ‘breathe’.
