at a rough guess, and without seeing another pic Stoand, it looks like the gear shift

Kinda a clown show.
Too bad someone had to ruin a nice pan head with that festoonery.
American chopper wanna be.

That's a bit harsh aint it Keith??
This bloke obviously has talent, unlike the OCC goons, i doubt they could turn out the work Shultz does!!!
As for ruining a panhead, how do you know a pan has been ruined? For all you know it could have been just a motor that someone's put in a chop frame??
So do you think the bike should stay standard?? Cos i don't and i'm sure most blokes on this site would rather see any bike chopped rather than leave 'em standard!!

And "festoonery", so long as the customer's happy and pays the $$$ that's good enough. Shultz obviously has a massive amount of pride in his work and his standards are very high, i for one would not ride a bike like that, however i appreciate the work that's gone into it, that's what makes the custom scene interesting.

Don't recall seeing anything you've done!! Maybe you can do better/different??
Get some pics up.

Cheers. :D

There are lots of styles of chops I don't like. I'm not even too keen on a lot of the jap chops I see. They just don't do anything for me. But just now and again one comes up that I think is beautiful. ABishops yellow yammie's one for instance. It's just got the look I dig. And generally I'm not a fan of a lot of the UK style chops. But again, every now and again one'll come up that I really like.

But for someone to build it, or get it built, means that it's what they really dig, so great. I respect that. And I'm glad that they've got what they want.

I'm fifty years old, I've got one foot still firmly planted in the seventies, and I 'm into the 60s/70's style. But there are chops from that era I think are downright ugly too.

Just like music, each generation/group has different tastes. None is 'better' than the other (I could make a quip about country, but I don't want to stir up that wasps nest) Most people wouldn't like Frank Zappa's stuff. And I must admit that the only album I really like is Overnight sensation. But I've got a friend who had a whole collection of Zappa's album.There's something he see's/gets from Zappa's music that most people don't. So good on him. I guess personal taste is a hard thing to fathom.

I guess some people, especially younger guys, see something the rest of us don't, in the so called 'billet barges' and OCC theme type bikes.

Though it's not my style of chop, I respect Shultz's work. It's obvious he's a highly skilled craftsman. Also, if it's what the customer wanted, then I'm glad s/he got what they wanted.

I'm glad there are so many different styles of chops around. It really would be boring if there were only frisco style chops or bobbers or OCC theme bikes, or whatever.

And I'm glad we've got this forum where others we can all have the freedom to express our opinions and convictions.

Ah man aren't chops just the coolest?

Chop on dudes and dudesses
al :)

"In Gaud We Trust"
I'm not saying that Shultz is a bad craftsman.
I'm sure it is hard to mold the filler into all the odd shapes and clean it up to look like it does. Its a fine piece of art.
The reason I check out this site is because the people here in the US have lost touch with what a bike should be.
In my opinion, A bike should look like a bike.
Most of the Aussie built bikes have a good look to them.
Riders style of choppers.
Function and form, Built to ride more then look at.
And sorry for the mis-spelled word.
