Issue 17 of Wild Aussie Choppers (AKA World’s Wildest Custom Choppers) is due out real soon and contains two feature bikes shot and written by Hosking Industries, including this awesome Big Bear, owned by Sydneysider Joe Di Palma. We shot it in an incredible abandoned factory in inner Sydney; but that’s a whole other story!
Powered by a 100ci S&S twin, the candy red chopper also features a Baker 6-speed ‘box, Devil’s Candy chrome rims and a 300-wide rear tyre. After a long history of building classic Australian muscle cars, this is Joe’s first bike and the results are excellent. Be sure to read all about it when the magazine comes out.
