Daddy Long Legs: A Chopper Profile

The Daddy Long Legs is a Radical chopper built by Klock Werks. See more chopper pictures.

Daddy Long Legs is a chopper aptly named, as it was built for a former Corn Huskers football player. Klock Werks, of Mitchell, South Dakota, designed the frame, placing the seat and forward controls to accommodate the big rider's physique.

The fuel tank started life as a standard West Coast Choppers item, but was modified for the application. Works Shocks cushion the triangulated swingarm in back, while Dakota Billet axles team with stretched, Harley-Davidson Deuce forks in front. Sixty-spoke wheels at both ends lend an 'old school' look. A combination sprocket and brake disc by Exile mounts on the left side of the bike, allowing the right side of the wheel to run 'open.'

A 120-cubic-inch Patrick V-twin powers the big Daddy, with exhaust pipes specially bent by Klock Werks. Satin black paint contrasts with the normal high-gloss paintwork of most choppers, and is accented with strategically placed red and white pinstripes.

What the owner wanted was a specially sized bike with a unique look, and Klock Werks was happy to oblige -- which is the whole idea behind these custom-built machines.
