Favorite part of the competition?
Being given the opportunity to showcase the process of building a chopper. In my own way, how I like to go about doing things. While trying to be an example that anyone can do this, and you don’t need to be a shop, a metal worker, a professional bike builder, or indecent human.
Having a platform to show that you don’t need to be the most knowledgeable about anything specific with these machines. You get to do what you dig, and that’s what you should be trying to portray through your build/ assembly/ process.
I’d like to thank my friends, family, girlfriend, and landlord for their ongoing support. That aside, it’s Nobody Vs everybody else.
