American Choppers

Posted:

I didn’t grow up a motor head, even though both of my brothers had motorcycles growing up. They always appear too dangerous to bother with. Thanks to the Discovery Channel, I can vicariously become a Hell’s Angel by watching the wild antics of Jesse James of West Coast Chopper fame on Monster Garage. Or I can watch the what happens when a type-A father browbeats his artsy son on American Chopper.
Dysfunctional families never looked so good! I really enjoy watching raw metal being twisted into art. When did the back tire of motorcycles get so fat? So many mysteries…
