OK, I always looked to the Scandinavians for classically-styled choppers (see below) back in the day, but there were one or two people in the UK building cool bikes too: you just had to look for them.
And coincidentally one of them lives up the coast from me here in Oz. Fellow ex-pat Pommie Keith Green built the cover bike in the second-ever issue of BSH magazine, in 1984. He's built a lot of bikes before and since (Jap and H-D) and is a big fan of GK. Cheers Keith!
