Stoked to announce Chicken Rick from Chicken Fried Choppers has started carrying Fifth Street Customs sissy bars and merch on his website Chop Shit! Also featured on Chop Shit are handmade handlebars, lighting, pegs, shirts, hats, patches, you name it they got it. If you're on Instagram head on over and give @chickenfriedchoppers a follow!
I’m getting there! Its no fuckin' joke running a one man operation. Finishing up the lightning bolt on the middle three early next week then designing a base so they will bolt straight up to your sportster. No removal of frame rails, no bulky gross mounting plates you have to buy separately. Just clean lines and a badass statement. After I get the base designed and welded on, these will head out to powder coat end of October and be available HOPEFULLY second week of November as I’ll be out shooting a ride in California for Fix My Hog the first week of November. I’m also releasing my Billy Bars now in XL at 24” wide as opposed to my normal 22” wide and in black powder coat as well as the standard chrome.
In regards to the raw stainless steel sissy bars, pictured far left is my prototype that I’ll be shooting on my bike and uploading to @fifthstreetcustoms website late next week. Since they won’t be powder coated, they’ll be available end of October to order.
If you would like no base on the sissy bar to put onto your rigid chopper, shoot me a line (email@example.com) and I’ll make one special for you to your dimensions at no extra charge.
Please keep in mind no work or shipping will occur between Nov 4-11. Thank you all so much for your support, hell yeah brother!!

Finished up the custom bar for the Clubhouse and installed it over the weekend. Really stoked on this one!
We're hard at work building out a new event space for live music in the western suburbs of the Twin Cities. I wrapped the stage in corrugated that had patina'd over the years at a mink farm. One of the challenges though came with this wall, the owner wanted to have a rustic/americana/barn look to it but with a sound membrane between the sheets of drywall we couldn't nail each barnwood board to the wall. We came up with the idea of framing a wall to attach to the wall, nailing the top only, and toe'ing into the stage on the bottom to minimize breaking the sound membrane. Then using construction adhesive to bond to the existing wall in the middle. From there we could nail to the frame without excessively damaging the sound membrane. Thanks to my buddy Ben and the intern Pooh Bear for getting this one done with me. Now its onto building a the bar!
Finished up the frame on the BMW K100 cafe racer late last week and its off to paint and then to Chris (owner) who will put the motor in and finish the build. I cant wait to see how it turns out, here it is right before leaving the shop.
With the frame all fab'd and tacked up, I'm working my way through all the welds. All joints got slugged and will have rosette welds as well to increase strength. Next up will be tabbing it to create points to mount the wiring harness to.
Hope everyones getting in some miles as the weathers getting better here the Midwest! We're tackling a pretty cool project here with a 1985 BMW. Customer is looking for a cafe racer so we're chopping the old and tig welding a new rear section using DOM tubing with slugs in the joints. Check back often to stay up to date with how the build is going!
