GKM Issue 91

The new issue features Smit from Australia on the cover with his homebuilt 1940 Harley big twin flathead chopper; you may notice it also sports an Indian Chief girder front end. Is mixing marques sacrilege? Course not... and Smit tells us why! [Photos: Roger Chambers]
Dan Haines' '67 Shovelhead came together slowly – think, years! – as he played a cat 'n' mouse game trying to score the engine from a seller who kept changing his mind. The wait was worth it though – this chopper sits right 'n' tight. [Photos: Maria Knight/Malenis Photography]
If you're trying to decide what this '53 Triumph pre-unit is – tracker, chopper, bobber? – then Brian Hiscock reckons he's achieved what he set out to do: build a 'special' with the benefit of a lifetime's experience with old Brit bikes – but none of the obvious influences. [Photos: Luke Rance]
You may have heard of DC Choppers, Dan Carr's shop in Hot Springs, Arkansas. They do it all from engine rebuilds to fabrication and when they finished this sweet green Knuck bob-job, it immediately caught our eye; Dan rebuilt the '46 motor and lots of work went into those custom tanks. This very early chopper style is what really floats our boat! [Photos: Dan Carr]
Sweden has a well-deserved reputation as the spiritual home of traditional chopper style in Europe; and David Gideskog's beautiful '68 Harley slabside Shovel chopper proves the point, yet again. Pure sixties style with the addition of some choice modern parts. [Photos: David Gideskog]
Built for a customer into after-hours Tokyo street racing, this minimalist, tough and tasty S&S-powered Shovel chopper was hand-built by Yuto in his Humongous Custom Cycles shop. Read the feature – this thing's as badass as it looks. [Photos: Mochi /Suntee]
The bones of this radical '47 Harley 'Texas stroker' Knuck was discovered in a derelict shed in Wales of all places; sold to Josh Bedford by a woman who'd done time for arms offences. Strange story? Oh, it gets stranger!
