Arlen Ness

it's easy to lump Arlen Ness in with the OCC, billet bullshit builders of the world, at least for the average cable watching member of modern America. He's more than just a corporate biker though. He really innovated and inspired lots of other builders with his early works. His Sportster diggers, and Knuckle choppers were cutting edge for the time, but had soul, and I remember trying to find pics of his bikes when I first got into choppers, this was before internet(fuck I guess I'm old huh?) I found this pic of Arlen from the mid 60's on his Knuck, thought it was pretty neat, also a cool ironhead chop with a weber intake.....
