Peter “Goose” Kies had a dream……to own not just the helicopter “choppers” but a road “chopper”!
Goose built his first bike in the 1970’s and over the years has had various other bikes, but they had to be sold on to help pay for the helicopters!
This is the end product of his passion for “choppers”!
