Choppers Magazine

Established 1967


Back in 1967 car and motorcycle customizer and father of Rat Fink, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth invented the first true custom bike magazine genre with Choppers magazine. It offered up crazy wild choppers and even the first David Mann paintings. Hell, no less a kustom kulture icon than Robert Williams worked on the magazine. The original Choppers ran until 1970 and Roth closed the doors, which opened the door to three upstarts who started publishing Easyriders magazine in 1971.
