Las Vegas, NV, November 17, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Like the music it represents, the Rockabilly Tribute chopper is as distinctive and stylish as the artist famous for the blend of sounds that make up Rockabilly. Recently debuted at the Seminole Hardrock Bike Fest in Tampa, by world renowned bike builder, Alan Bernard of Santiago Chopper, the chopper is a fusion of what makes Rockabilly one of the oldest forms of Rock-N-Roll.
The bike is also a tribute to the old school "Bobber" popular in the 1950s and 1960s around the same time Rockabilly was in its heyday. It incorporates details by using parts of a Grestch Guitar, an old style microphone carburetor and memorabilia from some of the best performers of the original Rockabilly sound. It captures the attention of a crowd wherever it goes, winning several “Best in Show” awards, the bike is sure to bring you back.
Also known as the “Bobber King”, Bernard has been building custom bikes for as long as he can remember. Originally from France, his family was building bikes long before it was the cool thing to do. As a Rockabilly music fanatic, Bernard fell in love with the America of the 50’s and likes to bring the past into the present.
Bernard has been featured in industry magazines all over the globe and began his shop in Tampa approximately three years ago. One of the major differences in a Santiago Chopper is they are designed to meet the tougher European TUV standards. “My choppers are one of a kind and cannot be duplicated”, says Bernard. “I never build the same custom twice. At Santiago Chopper we are committed to bringing our customers the highest quality chopper in the market today.”
Santiago Chopper is fast becoming legendary in the US by taking on the biker world by storm and winning top honors at numerous bike shows including Sturgis and Easyrider shows, respectively. The Rockabilly Tribute is a fine example of the craftsmanship put into each Santiago Chopper. People that see the chopper multiple times remark that there is so much detail that they see something new every time.
Santiago Chopper Specialties and the “Rockabilly Tribute” will be featured at the upcoming Big Twin West, AMD Pro Show and the Custom Chrome Dealer Show at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Nov. 17 – 20, 2005.
