West Coast Choppers, builder of Grindhouse
For those of you who have lived the life of a Zombie for the past decade, Jesse James formed West Coast Choppers ten years ago and he, his bikes, and the attitude that is West Coast Choppers are without equal in the two-wheel industry, both sides of the border. In the beginning as it were – and with just reason to use such as phrase that one would normally find on the first page of THAT BOOK that one would find in a road side motel dresser drawer –, Jesse tells me that he hand-picked a 50-man team in an 18,000-square-foot shop. Today, from what I can gather, Jesse’s dig sprawls over 250,000-square-feet in industrial Long Beach, within a series of art deco warehouses that, true-to-form, were simultaneously restored and modified to house the operations.

Freakshow Choppers, builder of Fantasma Del Lago
In November of 2003, the birth of Freakshow Choppers was delivered by Jay Burnham. Originally a hobby, this new venture quickly took off. Surprised by the popularity of his bike, Burnham was forced to hire more manpower. Bob Best was the new help that lent his knowledge in welding and construction. Soon after Blair Chamberlain was hired as head constructor to help with the still growing demand. With their success showing no signs of slowing down, they started building the "Aliento Del Diablo" (Devils Breath) in August 2005. This would be their first show bike and would go on to collect 2nd place at the BC Com'sWest Coast Custom Show in March of the following year. The Freakshow choppers' trophy...
