AEE chop truck completed!

AEE had a Dodge A-100 truck we used. Tom took it and built a freaky hot rod out of it for Street Roddeer magazine in the mid-70's. It eventually disappeared until a few years ago. It was found and has been restored. Here is a link to 204 pictures of it....

Drove it many times to the post office and to pick up parts but it didn't look like chassis, chopped top, blown 454 mounted amidships and so on......

Are You Ready??????

That's what Paul Ponkow of Bones Legacy in Las Vegas said to me when he sent these in....are we ready for this?  Still needs clear of course but my god they nailed it!!! Notice in the seat area the photocopies they worked from, pages out of Street Chopper, off the cover of AEE Choppers catalog etc.

From Sweden a build from the 70's using all AEE parts

Looking very similar to AEE's famous Shovelhead we have Klaes Palmgren's chopper. I do not have all the details yet but he had it in the US at one point. Pictures of the bike and some of his girlfriend with one of Tom's "cat's in front of the publishing company after AEE went out of business.

Big Twin fuel/oil tank bodywork

Courtesy Paul Ponkow at Bones Legacy here is a shot of Big Twin's fuel tank receiving the needed body filler prior to paint......not the two caps. One is for fuel and the other goes all the way through the tank to the oil tank hidden below (down between the two engines)......another brilliant design by Dave Brackett the builder of Big Twin at AEE Choppers.

Big Twin on TV

Courtesy of Paul at Bones Legacy in Las Vegas.....Big Twin was on the latest show of Counting Cars on the History Channel! They should do a whole show just on Big Twin in my opinion.
