Spoon: A Chopper Profile

With even its frame built from scratch, the Spoon chopper is truly a custom motorcycle. See more motorcycle pictures.

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.
