Guide to Custom Chopper Kits

It can get confusing when choosing parts that you want your custom chopper to be made of. However, companies like Phantom Cycle, Biker’s Choice, etc have started to sell those famous ‘Chopper-in-a-box’ kits which make life a lot more easier. Custom choppers are now much more affordable.

You need to be aware of the kind of chopper you would like to build. Then you should go ahead and set a reasonable budget for the parts, and any labor costs as well as unexpected expenses. In many cases, the price of the parts is what keeps most of the chopper enthusiasts away from getting a custom chopper of their own. However, if you have clear specifications in your mind, you’ll end up with fairly inexpensive parts and a stunning finish.

Always try to use the authentic parts available within your budget. At times, even though you have an awesome finish in mind, you can end up with a relatively poor finish just because the suppliers did not pay much attention to the details.

Most of the ‘chopper-in-a-box’ kits usually consist of a chassis, engine, tires, exhaust pipes, metal parts, and steel tanks. They also often include a seat, headlamp, etc. Obviously, any other extras would depend on the brand of the kit you chose. Paint is vital to finish the custom job, as well as battery acid. Mirrors and other accessories are typically not provided in the kits because most people would prefer to buy their own designs.

Experts often recommend that you purchase your kit as well as the accessories from just one single manufacturer. This may, in some cases, require you to wait. It sure is not easy to wait, specially when you’re so close to doing what you’ve always wanted to do. But you’ll be definitely glad that you waited when the job’s finished.
