DENVER’S CHOPPERS HORSE TRADER
Trade you a chopper for that
Denver’s Choppers’ “Horse Trader” feature was neither the first nor last Denver Mullins chop to grace the pages of Street Chopper, but it is a great example of Mullins’ work. It’s a simple-looking chopper to a casual observer, no BS slathered anywhere. Long-ass springer forks are a staple of Mullins’ work, and this bike is no exception, rocking a 20-inch- over springer fork set bracketing an 18-inch wheel with laced spokes. Straight pipes run along the frame on either side down low, while the curved prism tank straddles the backbone up top. It may look like the gas bag is molded to the chassis directly, but in fact the tank was easily removable.
The original article (pun intended) got its name from Mullins being a bit of a barter junkie. He liked money as much as anyone else, but, like a lot of chopper guys, he was always on the lookout for a good swap. He’d been wanting a new car for a while and nabbed one by swapping this chopper for it. SC
