Larry Pierce's Evo Sporty Chopper


Several great motorcycle constructors in these United States promote their fab artistry under the Garage Company brand. With each company building some of the best-looking bikes imaginable, it can be difficult for the layperson to tell them apart. To add distinction to his moniker, Larry Pierce of Birmingham, Alabama, includes the "Customs" suffix on his shop's name. Larry's bikes are always custom, so the nom de plume is apropos.

If you don't recognize Larry's name, you might recognize his motorcycle. This stylish red and yellow Evo Sporty graced the cover on this year's Limpnickie Builder's Manual. That's Mr. Pierce popping a wheelie on his freedom machine. Larry is a regular reader and frequent contributor on the ChopCult forum, and a good friend, to boot. Larry and his wife Ashley travel the country regularly from their southern home to attend events on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line.




We caught up with the Pierces last March at the Limpnickie Lot in Daytona Beach. Larry is a regular on the Lot, and his bikes draw good crowds at these tarmac socials. I asked Larry what makes this wheelie-poppin' chopper tick, and he tossed me the keys and told me to see for myself. With a twist of the switch—I'm proud to say I've never ridden a chopper that didn't have electric start—I scooted down the parking lot to snap photos. All I can say about my experience on Dixie Wrecked is this: I couldn't wheelie Larry's cover bike if you held a gun to my head. Larry, on the other hand, has more than enough nuts to get it up, and that's just the way his lovely wife Ashley likes it.

Thanks for letting me take a spin in your little southern belle, Larry, and thanks to Ashley for showing her money maker to me and all our friends.

The twisted top motor mount looks awesome, love the way the way the sissy bar changes profile at the mounting bungs simple but smart. He's got some skills.

I'd say it'a very novel reinterpretation of chopperdom's past,
if anybody were to ask.

That looks very driveable! I like it a lot and I am not even a Sportster fan. Yet.

Commented on 3-20-2011 At 10:28 am

I've always thought "Dixie Wrecked" would be a great stripper name for a southern belle

Commented on 3-20-2011 At 04:33 pm

I have been lucky enuff to see this bike in person and spend time with the guys at Garage Co, the bike is amazing and the guys at the shop are great. All their bikes are super sick!
