What are Big Wheel Custom Bikes?

Big Wheel Custom Bikes, also known as “big wheel baggers” or “big wheel motorcycles,” are custom-built motorcycles that feature oversized front wheels compared to standard motorcycles. These custom bikes have gained popularity in the custom motorcycle industry and are known for their unique and eye-catching appearance.

The defining feature of Big Wheel Custom Bikes is the front wheel, which is typically larger than the traditional sizes found on motorcycles. While standard motorcycles commonly have front wheels ranging from 16 to 21 inches in diameter, Big Wheel Custom Bikes often have front wheels measuring 26 inches, 30 inches, or even larger.

The large front wheel gives these motorcycles a distinct and aggressive look. It alters the overall stance of the bike, elevating the front end and creating a more dramatic and prominent appearance. The front fender is often modified or replaced to accommodate the larger wheel size.

In addition to the oversized front wheel, Big Wheel Custom Bikes often feature other customizations and modifications. These may include extended forks, stretched and lowered frames, custom bodywork, performance enhancements, unique paint schemes, and elaborate audio systems.

Big Wheel Custom Bikes have become a popular trend in the custom motorcycle scene, with enthusiasts and builders showcasing their creativity and craftsmanship through these unique creations. They combine elements of style, customization, and performance to create visually striking motorcycles that stand out from the crowd.

About John Shope

John Shope started in the 80’s as an artist and sculptor prior to entering the custom bike business. It wasn’t until the big economy crash that John knew he had to make a move in the motorcycle industry. He purchased a new bike and began not only creating new parts but, cutting up the stock ones.

He wasn’t quite sure how the motorcycle community would respond but, he knew he was onto something and kept pushing forward. Known as, The Risk Taker, John continues to take chances in this industry striving to find the next great thing.

Over the years John has won numerous awards including Chopped Bagger Best of Show, Buffalo Chip Supreme Sturgis Showdown (as seen on Biker Battleground) and won the title of Grand Champion Winner in the Baggers Invitational Bike Build-Off 2014, 2015 and 2016.

To top it all off, in 2015 John received the greatest honor of all; he was inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. John is known for creating one-of-a-kind custom baggers at Dirty Bird Concepts in Phoenix, Arizona. Known for creating the Dirtytail. These Softail-based customs not only look incredible, they do the one thing that no stock Softail has ever done, offer incredible handling.
