Spoon: A Chopper Profile

Precious Metal Customs, formed in 1998, builds only radical machines, like the Spoon chopper, with most pieces being custom-made. For instance, whereas most manufacturers buy frames and sheetmetal off the shelf, PMC creates its own.

The Spoon rides a hardtail chassis carrying a 100-cubic-inch Harley-Davidson engine fitted with Rev Tech internal hardware. Among the bike's unusual features is a rearview camera and video screen that substitute for rearview mirrors -- eliminating their often tacked-on look -- while allowing the rider a clear view of what he's leaving behind.

Internal machining on the rear sprocket matches the design of the rear wheel. Red chain and axle cover put a colorful finishing touch on pieces that normally detract from the overall look.

The image from the rearview camera is displayed on a video screen frenched into the top of the fuel tank.

Spire-topped footpegs and control pedals follow a theme carried throughout the bike.
