Special Construction choppers are typically built largely from factory- or catalog-supplied components, but with several unique twists -- and since an aftermarket frame is often among them, they usually aren't just stock bikes with added accessories. In some cases, bikes fall into this category simply because they didn't fit comfortably anywhere else. And for many people, a chopper that's difficult to categorize makes it all the more appealing.

The following articles provide detailed photos, specifications, and descriptions of unique Special Construction choppers.
