Bar Hodgson to unveil exotic “Vincent Black Chopper”

Bar Hodgson to unveil exotic “Vincent Black Chopper” complete with ‘American Pickers’ 1948 Engine Find ! 

 A special unveiling of the most ‘Far-Out’ custom Vincent motorcycle yet will take place on opening day of the 2015 Toronto International Spring Motorcycle Show at the Toronto International Centre.  The “Vincent Black Chopper” is the latest acquisition project of motorcycle builder and collector, and producer of the SPRINGSHOW, Bar Hodgson.  The Vincent Black Chopper will be the feature bike in the prestigious ‘Bikes of the Century’ display in Hall 2.

How the completed Vincent Black Chopper came to be is an international odyssey beginning with the acquisition of the rolling chassis at the National Vincent Rally in Colorado in 2012.  The monoshock curved backbone bike was custom built by Redneck Engineering of South Carolina and although the bike was complete when seen at the rally it could only be acquired without the engine.  The quest for the replacement engine started with a missed opportunity at the Daytona auction which saw the perfect Vincent engine sold and shipped to Germany. Prior to that this very engine was found by the American Pickers on a famous episode of their TV series (episode 36, California Dreamin’), and it came to be known as ‘The Pickers Engine’.  A year later Bar saw a photo of that same engine (it’s unique in that it is extensively and highly polished – very unusual for a Vincent engine) in the background of a photo in Fritz Egli’s shop in Switzerland.  Bar made a deal to acquire the totally dismantled V-Twin and shipped it to Canada, where the engine was repaired and assembled by noted Vincent Specialist, Mike White, and the final reassembly of the Vincent Black Chopper was performed by noted Vincent builder, Bar Hodgson.  The result is a perfect pairing of modern design and classic machinery, not to mention its head-turning stunning appearance.

Although the design features are too numerous to mention (spec sheet available at www.supershowevents.com) worth noting is that this chopper is built in the “digger” style, the rake is 50 degrees with a tubular springer front end and 18” Weld Forge Wire wheels. The ‘Pickers’ engine is a 1948 Vincent HRD 1000cc Rapide with dual carbs and pipes.  Be there for the unveiling opening day, Saturday, March 21st.
