2006 American IronHorse 10th Anniversary Texas Chopper Special Edition

Intro

Like many of the custom bike builders, American IronHorse had a rather short life. Start-up in 1995 was heralded with a great innovative chopper. The designs were something special, in the old-school chopper fashion. All of the tin and leather was designed and fabricated in-house. The engines were built by S&S, and the transmissions were made by either Roadmax or Baker. The custom bikes were all hand-built in the 224,000 square foot factory in Fort Worth, Texas. By spring 2008, production ceased and its assets were sold at auction. There are still plenty of these great looking bikes available if you're willing to do some searching. Most have been upgraded from the originals.

Engine options on the IronHorse bikes include S&S 110 ci, 117 ci, and 124 ci. However, the Texas is the huge 124ci, dragging out 130 horsepower. They're chromed out to the max and feature diamond-cut, powder-coated barrels. The 10th Anniversary Texas Chopper came out of the factory with a two-tone red and silver candy sparkle paint that looked as good, if not better, than any custom paint job. It paired the 124 ci engine up with a Baker six-speed transmission and the new IronHorse clutch.

The telescoping front forks are raked at an impressive 42° (38° frame plus 4° raked triple trees). Attach those to a chromed frame, top it with that fabulous long and sleek 3.5-gallon fuel tank, and you've got amazing looking bike. The rear suspension is an IronHorse edition of a softail, so the ride is much better than the appearance would indicate. A super-fat 280 rear tire finishes off the modern chopped look.

In keeping with the ""chopped"" aspect of this bike, instrumentation is minimalist and includes a combination of digital and analog, with a tachometer, speedometer, and trip reset. At a whopping 110.5 inches long, with a low 4.3 inches of ground clearance, the solo leather seat sits just 25.3 inches off the pavement. The forward controls and very tall handlebar position puts the comfort zone more in the favor of an average-size rider. Even though this is a ""factory"" produced bike, the IronHorse line is all custom-built. The 10th Anniversary can be called the head of the class.
