gear, well chromed and solid as hell – but at this point
is doesn’t look like any triple-tree we’ve ever seem
before, and that’s because it’s not. This kit is WAY
more than raked trees, it actual changes the pivot point
of your entire front end – it literally makes the front
end “think” the frame has been chopped.

AME Chopper Kit turns
your stocker into a serious ready-to-ride chopper in ONE DAY!
Warren and Trash put this innovative kit through its paces and
come away grinning!
I’ve been riding, reading about and building choppers for many
years now – before they were they plaything of the weekend
warrior with an extra 50 grand burning a “toy hole” in his
pocket, before anything as silly as a 360 wide tire showed up on
the scene, and before anybody knew about a guy named Jesse
James. In fact, when the TV guys decided this “chopper thing”
was something they wanted to point their lenses at, they asked
me to promote the first Motorcycle Mania on my site. I’m Warren
Fuller and I run a website called choppersrule.com, and I have
for over 11 years simply because I love custom, hand-built
motorcycles that get ridden like demons through the night
regardless of wind, snow, rain or hail. I dig bikes that have
long front ends, that have cut up frames, that have rigid
mounted motors that all spell freedom, fun and the rush of the
open road with nothing but you, your motorcycle and a fine woman
on the back. I dig choppers.
