When we deal with choppers, we always have to look at the aesthetics, after all we're wanting to make a beautiful machine.

One of the parts about some choppers that I don't like at all is the strange open space between the top of the engine and the tank and frame. I like the form following the function, and there really isn't a function for that gap. This model and some others have that gap that needs filled with something.

More engine maybe? Booyeah!
