Aero Precision Metal Works is the name of an Arizona-based custom bike maker that likes to “build motorcycles from the ground up,“ not just take existing platforms and adding this or that custom part to make them stand out. No, these guys build and assemble most of their projects from scratch and seem to cut no corners in doing so. It is not surprising that they build a color-changing custom chopper called Metal Flake. AMERiders has the story on this gorgeous bike.
The chopper we have here is one of their latest builds, and it was finished earlier this year. It doesn’t have a name, so we christened it “Metal Flake” on account of the paint job it has on.
The shop describes the two-wheeler as a bike with a “custom-built board and track style with beach cruiser influence.“ It comprises a custom frame made of tig-welded steel and a 127-cubic-inch (2.1-liter) El Bruto engine sourced from Ultima.
According to the builder, the engine shows just 5 miles (8 km) of use, rocks an S&S Super G carburetor, and breathes through a “one of a kind exhaust system made out of stainless steel.” It is controlled by means of a 6-speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch, also of Ultima make.
The rather limited body parts (read slim frame, tank, and rear fender) have been wrapped in chameleon paint, which under direct light switches from black to silver, depending on the angle of view. The tank and rear fender also get blue/teal hues, while the engine comes powder coated in black.
To wrap up the build, the shop went for massive 26-inch billet wheels and leather seat and they seem to fit right in with the overall image of the finished bike.
The Metal Flake chopper is presently for sale, and the asking price for it is $38,999. It goes with a clean title and manufacturer statements of origin for engine and transmission. Here is a list of some more of its specs and goodies.
