Danny Franssen Rides again...

Another awesome Chopper build by one of my bikebuilding Heroes, Danny Franssen from Belgium.
This bike was inspired by a chopper build by Denver's Choppers somewhere mid seventies.
Danny put the Street Choppers magazine feature about this bike on his wall as a 15 year old kid, and quite some years later decides to build a bike with the original Denver's Chopper well in mind.
More about this bike and Danny in the next issue of Motorized! for now, this one shot (guess there will be more to found on the web in some time)
If you haven't heard about Danny or don't know about his bikes...check out this great thread on the Jockey Journal
Danny's '66 Early Shovel Denver Style
