New Handlebar Switchbox
It’s time to re-do the orange ironhead. It’s something of a ritual here. While we were working on the bike I decided to make a nice, sanitary switchbox. I like having horn and light controls handy, but I HATE big klunky things on my handlebars. These are small and look good. Weld them on before chroming or you can bolt them on. Available with switches or bare so you can make up your own configuration. In the store Rapide Taillight We now have the Rapide taillight in stock in satin black powder coat with polished grill bars to match the headlight. It looks totally awesome!
Rapide Black Headlight We now have the Rapide headlight in stock in satin black powder coat with the edges of the grill bars polished!
New Kick Start Pedal Check out our new kick start pedal in the store We make these up from solid brass or solid aluminum on the CNC and hand polish the outside. These were a one-off for a friend and I made up some extras, limited to what we have already made up.
New Exhaust Flanges! We’re building a new bike, and while I was thinking about how to make the exhaust as nice as possible I had an idea for these smoothie exhaust flanges. Instead of a flat flange and a lump of weld how about a smooth, flared transition from the engine to the pipe? These are machined out of a solid block of steel, and have a really nice finish. If you’re into building your own stuff they can help you fab a spectacular set of pipes — especially when coupled with our exhaust tube step adapters Available now in the store
New Product! Hot off the presses (ok, hot off the mill), the new Chillin’ oil filter/cooler for kick start 4 speed bikes. Check it out in the store
Congratulations to Dar Holdsworth! Dar, of Brass Balls Bobbers fame, just came away from a military themed biker build-off with a first place trophy in tow. He built a solid bike with their traditional styling and high quality fabrication. The bike has the Indian-style Power Plus engine, which is a really sharp looking piece. He also used our Rapide air cleaner and head light on this bike (the air cleaner is on the left side, this being an Indian setup). Way to go man! Check out Dar’s site, he’s building a bike as a give-away with IronWorks magazine. You can even vote to use Crime Scene Choppers parts on the build. Cool Paint Treatment by Robert Pradke One of our customers, Ernesto from Las Vegas, sent some pictures of his bike recently. He had Robert Pradke do the paint work, and like everything else he does it totally rocks. Ernesto got one of the very first Rapide headlights, if not the very first. I love the paint treatment. Check out the picture of the bike from above, the artwork and the Crime Scene headlight and gas cap all work together to make a really nice style line.
Congratulations to Thunderbike! The AMD European Championship was held in Mainz Germany recently, and first place in the Freestyle class was awarded to Thunderbike, a German HD Dealer and custom bike builder. Their bike “Open Mind” is a clean, tight modern bike with vintage styling cues, spectacular custom paint work, brass accents and very nice lines. It also features our new Rapide air cleaner and tail light! Congratulations to Freddie and all the guys at Thunderbike!!

If you have problems with the new site, or questions about anything be sure and Contact Us New Mordor Exhaust Tips We were sitting around the shop a while back and I sketched out these new “pointy exhaust tips”, everyone seemed to think they were bitching, but at the same time, everybody sat a little further away… I showed them to Gabe at After Hours Choppers and he said they looked just right for a bike built in Mordor and the name stuck. At least two other people have spontaneously commented about how these look like something evil from “The Lord or the Rings”, so we’re happy to present the Mordor Exhaust Tips These babies are hand made in steel, high strength silver brazed, hand polished and chromed. They slip into standard 1.75" exhaust pipes, this is the most common size exhaust tube on a bike. A single stainless screw holds them in place from behind. Mordor Chrome Exhaust Tips. Uncompromisingly unique, $89 each plus shipping.
