Old Skool of Hard Knocks

Montreal Choppers, builder of “Old Skool of Hard Knocks”
Montreal Choppers presents its latest creation: “Old Skool of Hard Knocks”. For this project, the designers imagined a “bobber” style bike sporting the theme of a futuristic and avant-garde “speed bike”, something that would have been created in the 1950’s. The ultimate goal was to create a machine that would incorporate retro elements inspired by the hot rods found in that era, but with some modern elements incorporated as well.

The designers at Montreal Choppers had “carte blanche” to execute this project. They took great pleasure in letting their imagination run wild. To get the project going, they brought together ideas that had been floating around the shop for a long time. Their vision of this project was to incorporate the oil tank within the gas tank of the bike. This was the major element that served as the basis of inspiration on this project.

Deception

HOWLER CUSTOM CYCLES, builder of Deception
I guess it’s been about 5 years since I decided I was going to build my own bike. I’m a fairly big guy and was fed up of riding bikes that just didn’t fit me. The response we received from that first bike led us to believe that this could, hypothetically, be molded into a business. I retired from the company where I was currently employed, and we opened Howler Custom Cycle in the spring of 2004.

Shortly after the store opening, we were contacted by Brian Simms who was looking for a pretty specific bike. After a few phone calls, that build took off and “the Gargoyle” bike ultimately gave our shop a status show winning bike that you could actually ride to work everyday, not just park in your garage to polish and admire. We did a few shows with Brian’s bike with the intent of getting our name “out there”, and we did very well that year. The shop was off and running.

Concept & Design Cycle, builder of Gladiator
This project began when Jean-Guy discussed the potential and modification possibilities of his 2006 Road Glide with Georges Thomas of Concept & Design Cycle. The goal was to modify the bike according to Jean-Guy’s taste and requirements.

First point to consider: Jean-Guy was the type that was always looking for maximum output – which barely gave the throttle a moments rest (between power shifts from his hand to his foot!). Georges knew that the R&R 155 cubic inch motor – which is as aesthetic and smooth as it is reliable – along with the 6-speed Baker transmission would be the perfect choice. The time then came to fit these components into the original Road Glide frame, which obviously involved modifying the height and length.
