In today’s landscape of custom bikes and bike builders, where it seems like everybody is giving bike building a try, it’s becoming harder to see any sort of originality in the marketplace. All you see are cookie-cutter “choppers” (I use that term loosely) where a builder’s idea of ingenuity is a big back tire and a long front end. And when you do find work done by the real talent in the industry, it’s incredible machine or sheet metal work, but it’s in no way applicable to your bike.
That makes Scott and Keith Webster from
Leroy Thompson Choppers a rare breed indeed. If you’re not familiar with their work then you’re missing out. These two guys are responsible for some of the most innovative, original and functional bikes I’ve ever come across. With the likes of “Ethyl,” “Luo 37” and “Trendkill” on its resume, Leroy Thompson has established itself as a top-of-the-food-chain company that not only turns out great bikes but great product as well. That’s right, I didn’t stutter — great products. Best yet, you can incorporate some of those same bad-ass parts found on the Leroy Thomson bikes into your own ride.
Keith and Scott have been hard at work in their
secret Ohio laboratory with machines running full tilt to turn out an incredible line of parts that — you guessed it — are available right here at J&P Cycles.
The Signature Series is just one of the substantial lines of Leroy Thompson goodies you can find here at J&P. There are motorcycle foot pegs, grips and even floorboards available in a handful of finishes including brass, copper and bronze. And it gets even better! These part are made right here in the U.S. of A. Think of it. Quality parts with enough individuality to set you apart from the crowd, and made by hard-working Americans. Kinda leaves you all soggy inside, don’t it?
