The History of Choppers
Rolling Sculptures
Rob Wieland
The History of Choppers explores the past, present and future of how chopper riders and builders are pushing this metallic self-expression into the realm of art. From the sleek lines of a custom ride to the savage beauty of a rat bike scrambled together from spare parts, every chopper represents something unique about its owner and is the ultimate statement of who the rider is. The History of Choppers tells the stories of the people behind the paint and pipes that make their choppers unique.
The History of Choppers covers early bike makers, evolution from back alley machines to rich urban versions, Hollywood's fascination with choppers, myth and reality behind biker symbolism, the clash between choppers and manufacturers, and a glossary of biker lingo.
