Rockin’ Chopper! Built for my son Zachary for his first birthday! Frame Oak, Tires Walnut, Rims Curly Maple, Seat Purpleheart, Tank Bloodwood/Purpleheart. Built from scraps from previous jobs. No plans, just put it together piece by piece.

For more pictures of the build please check out my facebook page.
