I was lucky enough to find my path in life early. I prospected a club young, full patch a year later, and haven't stopped or slowed down since. Been a thumper, a chapter officer, and a regional officer the past 30 years. I married the sexiest woman I ever laid eyes on 25 years ago; we're still having fun. Got a daughter in college and a son in high school and another boy who lives with us, he's just like family. I chop bikes. Jap, American, German, Italian, makes no difference. I build rigid frames for about anything. IT IS NOT A CHOPPER IF IT HAS A SWINGARM AND SHOCKS, WHETHER THEY ARE VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL. And yeah, I can say that because I've been doing this since the 70s. And I can whup your ass. Easy.
