Mentor, OHIO – March 15, 2007 – Leroy-Thompson Choppers announces the release of the Ethyl frame, the frame used on Leroy-Thompson's industrially inspired, hot rod Biker Build-Off bike, a bike that showcases Scott Webster's imagination, combining simplicity of design and raw hand-formed metals with functionality and high performance parts. The BBO bike is clean and begs to be ridden. Like all Leroy-Thompson products, the Ethyl is the hand-made creation of Scott Webster and built with inspiration drawn from his passion for hot rods, motorcycle racing, V-twins and his industrial background of the Midwest.
The Ethyl is a low and sleek frame with all kinds of curves, built for housing a 250mm tire. All Leroy-Thompson Choppers' frames are manufactured with 1/8 and 3/16" DOM tubing for strength and durability, and the Ethyl has a bent and drilled down tube for killer looks. The Ethyl is available 3" out with either a 30 or 40-degree rake and 31" neck height, and in either a Sportster or Big Twin platform. Like all Leroy-Thompson frames, the Ethyl is also available as a roller. Everything is machined in house, including the axle covers and neck.
Leroy-Thompson Choppers is the brainchild of Scott Webster and is located just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Leroy-Thompson Choppers specializes in handcrafted motorcycles and custom parts, and has been featured in the book The Art of the Bobber, as well as magazines such as Barnett's, Cycle Source, Freeway, Hot Bike, Hot Rod's Bike Works, IronWorks, Street Chopper, The Horse Backstreet Choppers, WILD, and most recently on an upcoming episode of The Biker Build-Off on the The Learning Channel, check your local listings.
