One thing for sure is that ChopCult’s international community is stronger than ever. Indonesia is a hotbed for custom motorcycle enthusiasts, making up 20% of our social media following. We love seeing the builds that their community produces, sometimes with little resources and equipment. Many thanks to Michael for sharing his bike with us.

Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include: There were many trials and errors and many sad and happy moments when I built this bike. So much effort in the process, but it feels so amazing now that the bike is finally done. The takeaway is that I’ve made many friends from working on and riding this bike.
