Screw the beach, too many rules.

Even old metric pseudo-cruisers have gotten in on the custom chopper craze.
4bdaddyrat.jpg
The year's Bike Week at MB featured custom chopper builders from everywhere. Big Daddy was a stand out with it's creative neo-old-school style.

Dig the tractor flaps. The dice are cubes impaled by the frame.
6BDaddyRat.jpg
Hardtails for ever.
7MBBabe.jpg
Adding high-class to this model's ploy was a man with a can begging for donations from anyone taking a picture of her. So we took a picture of the guy who was having his picture taken with her.
8MBWarrior.jpg
A sweet, tricked-out Yamaha Warrior. A cruiser with an aluminum frame is not a bad place to start.
9MBBikes.jpg
There were bikes at Myrtle Beach, even though there wasn't a sun on the closing weekend and it was unwarm, after a week of perfect cruising weather.
10Wicked.jpg
Wicked Choppers, an MB based shop, displayed its take on chopperdom.
11MBRoland.jpg
Roland Sands had a few of his eclectic creations on display. Expect to see a feature here on this one very soon.

Some bikes just make guys wonder... about things like kidney failure and hernias.
13MBBikesOnly.jpg
It doesn't say 'bikes only,' it says 'bikers only.' A message too subtle.
14Confused.jpg
What are you looking at?
16MBCoffin2.jpg
A very hard tail, indeed. Too many bikes to remember if this one belongs to S&S.
17MBChopper.jpg
Choppers were everywhere, not just on display by companies.
18MBChopper.jpg
$35,000 chopper, $25 helmet. Politics, eh?
19MBChopperChrome.jpg
Voted most likely to maim its owner.
21MBChoppers.jpg
Step right up, get your choppers, show specials.
22MBCustom.jpg
This is the one bike I should have paid more attention to who made it. Nice job, nice details.
23MBCustom2.jpg
Sure the shift lever reminds me of my Wheel Horse lawn tractor, but it's got a nicer finish.
24MBCustom3.jpg
Dad likes it, mom don't.
25MBFatChcik.jpg
I don't know why I took this picture. I don't know why I didn't delete it.
26MBOCC1.jpg
Yup, An OCC theme bike. This one in honor of the firemen lost on 9/11.
27MBCptAmerica.jpg
After recuperating from his gun shot wounds, Captain America bought a small house in South Carolina where he fund work at the local furniture factory and married Jenny Sue.
27MBOCC2.jpg
All three of the OCC trailers were mobbed. The Paulie boys are stars.
28Cool.jpg
One of he very coolest bikes at the beach; clean, simple, sweet, and unique.
29Cool2.jpg
The full-on car chain is actually the key chain. Its wear marks into the tank are the marks of smart style. If you know who's bike this is please contact us.
30MBMoreBikes.jpg
Try as they might, sportbikes can't hide in a field of cruisers.
31MBChopperChick.jpg
There's nothing to say. This is what Bike Weeks now look like.
32MBSBC1.jpg
SBC Choppers showed there stuff, such as this Joker.
33MBSBC2.jpg
Which makes us have to ask, why not a royal flush?
34MBSBC3.jpg
The SBC Joker.
35MBSBCchopper.jpg
SBC's idea of a 280 chopper.
36MBSBCChopper2.jpg
On this hardtail, 280 chopper, that rod near the front of the fender is rumored to be a passenger peg.
37MBIronCross.jpg
The Iron Cross, quietly. Those Nazis sure had a sense of fashion, huh.
38MBSouthernSchooling.jpg
Welcome to South Carolina.
39MBExile1.jpg
We know why this man is smiling. Russell of Speedvision's Build or Bust fame.
40MBExile2.jpg
And if you've never seen his choppers, these are the kinds of things Russell builds. No flash, no bright colors, no crap bolted on for kicks, and barely anything shiny in sight. Just smart, balanced, provocative designs of a distinctive eye.
