2005 Rick Dore Kustoms Chopper
Frame no. AZ278296
For more than 20 years Rick Dore has steadily been turning out some of the best custom cars ever seen. His slammed and stylized lead sleds have taken numerous show awards, landed the man in several automotive halls of fame and won the respect of clients, fellow builders and industry watchers. Says Terry Cook, a former editor at Hot Rod magazine, "Rick Dore creations are unquestionably the very best in the world...he has the ability to build cars and trucks that, on one hand, represent the epitome of traditionally flavored custom cars, but at the same time he reaches out and goes where nobody has gone before."

The chopper on offer here was the first motorcycle to leave the Rick Dore Kustoms shop. It was built as the two-wheeled bookend to Dore's amazing, award-winning 1934 Ford Roadster "Flashback" and is finished in the same stunning pastel shade of Caribbean Lime paint. Power is provided by a RevTech 110-cubic-inch (1800cc) V-twin engine working through a Baker six-speed gearbox. It's housed in a Paul Yaffe Softail frame that delivers several inches of spine-friendly rear suspension. Wheels are a one-off design by Colorado Custom, carved from billet then chrome-plated.

The machines that made up the Second Coming of the Chopper in the 1990s and 2000s are some of the most finely crafted motorcycles ever made. Here's a chance to own one of the best at a fraction of its original build cost.
