Today, numerous companies offer prebuilt “factory” choppers for sale to the
public. But back in 2002 when the Catalog Bike was built, that wasn’t the case. There were, however, catalogs offering parts that could be purchased on an á la carte basis, and then assembled into a chopper. And this is a prime example of such a machine.
Starting with a Kraftech hardtail frame, Scooter Shooterz of Indiana added 12-inch-over Pro-Tech telescopic forks, a fuel tank from Independent, and a Rev Tech powertrain. Sixty-spoke wheels from DNA, a custom seat designed by Scooter Shooterz, and an exhaust system from L.A. Choppers helped make it ridable. Scooter Shooterz then finished it off with tangerine paint hosting graffiti graphics, and voilá -- another chopper was born.
