Now that the chopper "Fad" is gone, it's back to the real guys that always built and rode choppers... the guys that don't care about a trophy in a show, or what some guy named Cait likes, or what a dip shit named Kanye says. It's nice that the choppers are back to the guys that have it in their heart! Ride choppers, build choppers, freak out the squares. #chopper #choppers #chopped #frame #fxrchopper #fxr #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #freakoutthesquares #streetfreak #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #tallchopper #howcanyouevenridethat #administerthecure #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #keepitsafekeepitstock

Just got this high neck chopper together and went for a test ride. It handles perfect. I think @theweirdharold is about ready to get weird and freak out the squares. 16" up, 0" out, stock 32 degree rake. #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #howcanyouevenridethat #pissoffmainstreamfollowers #freakoutthesquares

The Horse Backstreet Choppers magazine showed some more love for Big Gabe this month... issue 180, Oct/Nov. Check out the 46 Knuck, and a whole bunch of other cool bikes! Thanks to Blu Rooster photography for the great photos. #thehorsebackstreetchoppers #thbc #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #1946 #knucklehead #knuck #chopper #choppers #stockbikessuck

This FXR frame is ready to go on the lift table and mock it up to measure for fork tubes. Another Cait-to-Bruce surgery completed. I cut out 20 pounds of stock ugliness and went 6" up, 0" out, 29 degree rake. I can already hear the purists... hey man, you ruined that FXR! #fxr #fxrchopper #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #stockbikessuck #heymanyouruinedthatfxr #ruinedit #caittobrucesurgery #midwestmemberextender #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead

Mocking up and measuring for fork tubes on this 07 Dyna chopper. Its reminding me of the stance of the bike on the movie Harley-Davidson and the Marlboro Man. #chopper #dynachopper #dyna #streetbob #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonandthemarlboroman

I got a text today from @ridechoppershailsatan with some cool pictures of his tall Dyna Super Glide that I chopped a few months ago. He was out riding it in 70 degree Tennessee weather, while I'm in the process of chopping another Super Glide in 24 degree Kansas weather. He said he loves his chopper, and how good it rides/handles. This is the best feedback to receive as a builder... a customer that loves what I had the opportunity to do for them! #chopper #choppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #chopped #frame #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #freakoutthesquares #streetfreak #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #midwesttallchopper #highneck #highandtight #tallchopper #howcanyouevenridethat #administerthecure

Picked up a much needed 3rd bike lift table today. It has side extensions to go with it too, but I need to get them from a storage unit that they're in. This will help me build more choppers! #bikelift #lifttable #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

I just finished up the 2011 Dyna Super Glide. I stretched the frame up 6", out 2", 36 degree rake, 8" over fork tubes, and it got some parts powder coated gloss black. I need to wipe it off and test ride it in the morning, then I'm starting on the next one. #chopped #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #superglide #midwestchopper #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #harleydavidsonhatesmychopper

Gloss black powder coating from Lorac always looks nice. These are for the Dyna Super Glide that I'm chopping right now. #black #powdercoat #lorac #wichita #dyna #dynachopper #superglide #chopper #chopped #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

It went from bitter cold a few days ago to 70 degrees today. People were talking about some sport ball game going on, but I got some work done in the shop, then took @halo_chopperlife for a ride in the RZR, a drive in the 57 GMC, and then got some dog wrasslin done. It was a great day! #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #trifivetrucks #truckproject #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms #chevytruck #gmctruck #polaris #rzr #rzrxp900 #bulldog #rottweiler #biffandbuster #goodday #trailriding

Getting out of the chopper scene, and getting a smart car... it even matches my shirt. @halo_chopperlife is jealous. #smartcar #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #beardedgiant #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #itmatchesmyshirt

This 2010 softail got the cure. I cut out the stock yuck, modified the neck, made the new backbone and front legs, and tack welded it together. Now I need to make the neck gusset, top motor mount, and tank mounts, then finish weld everything. This one is 10" up, 2" out, 38 degree rake. I'll be measuring for fork tubes and setting it up as a roller for the owner to finish. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #softailchopper #midwestchopper #highneck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #chopit #cutitup #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #bigGabechoppedit #stockbikessuck #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds #weridechoppers #ruinedit #ruinedanotherone #heymanyouruinedthatsoftail #howcanyouevenridethat #choppersarestupid #choppersaredead #harleydavidsonhatesmychopper

Here's some of my work that was featured in some magazines over the years. There's 4 in The Horse Backstreet Choppers, 1 in Hot Bike, 1 in Wide Open, 1 in 10-4, 1 in American V. I couldn't find some of the pictures. It's cool to see things that I built in print. I'm just a humble, 1 man shop, with some help and support from my wife @halo_chopperlife . There's hopefully some more to come in the future. #chopper #choppers #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #weridechoppers #magazine #magazinefeature #custombike #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #panhead #knucklehead #shovelhead #evo #twincam #customframe

Allow me to play you the song of my people... the panhead had its first start up after a rebuilt motor, transmission, wiring harness, tires, clutch, chains, etc. The owner wanted to be sure everything stayed in the "as-found" look, so the motor/ transmission cases and heads weren't blasted, but everything is rebuilt to stock specs. #panhead #pan #barnfind #1950 #1958 #harleydavidson #firststart #newmotor #rebuiltmotor #rebuilttransmission #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

Getting closer on this panhead project. Tomorrow, it gets a new chain, fork seals/oil, and a little gas. Maybe it'll talk to me after that. #panhead #pan #harleydavidson #rebuild #rebuilt #barnfind #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms

I started the reassembly of this "barn find" panhead today. It's going back together in as found condition with no cosmetic changes, but got a rebuilt motor, transmission, replica wire harness, tires, clutch, etc. #panhead #pan #harleydavidson #rebuild #rebuilt #barnfind #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms

I spent some time during this crappy, cold, rainy afternoon, and did a bunch of maintenance on this RZR XP... changed all the fluids, greased all the suspension and drive shaft, made some adjustments, and pulled off the stator cover and flywheel to fix a known problem with the starter idler gear shaft on the 2011/2012 models. Its ready to rip now. #polaris #rzr #rzrxp #rzr900xp #maintenance #preventivemaintenance #coldrainyday #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops

The Fitty Seven got a big transmission upgrade. I swapped out the SM465 4 speed for an NV4500 5 speed overdrive. It's nice for the big block at highway speeds, and went from shifting like a dump truck to a modern truck. #nv4500 #nv4500swap #advanceadapters #5speed #overdrive #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #57chevy #trifivetrucks #chevytruck #gmctruck #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #trifive #bigblockchevy #454 #4x4 #4wd #isthatthing4wheeldrive #frameswap #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough #builtnotbought #vintagetruck

Another stock Dyna just got the cure, and doesn't have to spend it's life as a stock bike anymore. 1997 Dyna Wide Glide, chopped 6" up, 1 1/2" out, 45 degree rake. The owner takes it from here, and is building a shovelhead motor that will probably surprise the unsuspecting Evo and Twincam rider! #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #wideglide #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

A progress picture of the current frame chop. While you were binge watching Jerry Springer and Maury Povich, another chopper was being born. 97 dyna frame, shovelhead/5 speed rubber mounted drivetrain, 6" up, 1 1/2" out, 45 degree rake. This one should be easier for the normies to wrap their mind around. #chopper #choppers #weridechoppers #dynachopper #dyna #wideglide #buildchoppers #ridechoppers #chopperlife #harleydavidsonhatesme #hogmemberscried #ruinedanotherone #ruinedit #heymanyouruinedthatdyna #stockbikessuck #midwestmemberextender #caittobrucesurgery #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #choppersaredead #choppersarestupid #howcanyouevenridethat #normies #freakoutthesquares #blowingminds

We just got done rebuilding this 1950 panhead motor. I didn't blast the cases or heads to keep it looking more original. It's going back into a "barn-find" bike, and the owner wants to keep the original look on the bike. This motor has EVERYTHING rebuilt to stock specs, except for a 40 overbore, and changed to o-ring intake spigots from the plumber style spigots. #panhead #pan #1950 #rebuild #rebuilt #barnfind #biggabechops #bigmanscustoms

I just got the 57 GMC 4x4 running and driving, and I'm already upgrading the SM465 4 speed to an NV4500 5 speed overdrive. I got a rebuilt transmission, and just got the adapter kit from Advance Adapters to put my NP205 transfer case behind the NV4500. The big block is going to love having an overdrive on the highway. #nv4500 #nv4500swap #advanceadapters #5speed #overdrive #57gmc4x4 #57gmc #5559chevytrucks #57chevy #trifivetrucks #chevytruck #gmctruck #truckproject #taskforcetrucks #bluechiptrucks #trifive #bigblockchevy #454 #4x4 #4wd #isthatthing4wheeldrive #frameswap #oldtruck #bigmanscustoms #biggabechops #liftedtrucks #jackedup #lookingtough #builtnotbought #vintagetruck
