Lethal Injection: A Chopper Profile

Lethal Injection is an award-winning chopper with a 107-cubic-inch V-twin engine. See more motorcycle pictures.

Scooter Shooterz has earned a reputation for building exotic choppers, but in terms of originality, Lethal Injection sets new standards. Proof of its allure came at a Louisville event, where it took Best Of Show honors.

At the heart of Lethal Injection is a 107-cubic-inch V-twin wearing 4-valve heads from Mega-Four and fed by a Hilborn mechanical fuel-injection system. Executed by Scooter Shooterz' own Warren Vesely, it performs even better than expected, overwhelming the massive 280-series rear tire under hard acceleration.

Oil for the engine is carried in the bike's frame downtube as well as externally mounted auxiliary storage tubes. Scooter Shooterz cut a pair of one-off wheels for Lethal Injection, and a GMA component does double duty as rear brake disc and drive pulley.

Every inch of the bodywork is original and the fuel tank sets new standards for complexity. The chosen hue is Big Red Flake from the House Of Kolor, with silver-leaf accents and a seat embroidered with the bike's name adding custom touches to the high-powered beast.
