Cyclops: Best Chopper at BF3

 

Mick’s bike won Best Chopper at BF3 - Sugar Bear himself picked it out of the crowd. Recently featured in Show Class issue two, we thought Chop Cult members might like a peek at what a legend like the Bear thinks is a real chopper.

Straight from Mick Evangelista

The bike build started when I got a phone call from my buddy Tim from Negotiable Parts here in Riverside. With his Boston accent, Negotiable Tim, said “Hey Mick, I just found a springa you might want.” I said “what kind?” Tim says “I don’t know but it only takes one spring and this cacksuckas long.” I haul ass to his shop to check it out. As soon as I saw it my wheels started turning. I looked at Tim and said, ”I guess I’m buildin’ another chopper.”

Different is GOOD. I love how a bike builds itself around just a few parts.
