Will Ramsey of Faith Forgotten Choppers from Southern Indiana was competing with his latest chop made with his custom titanium frame at the 2016 Willies Tropical Tattoo Choppertime Custom Bike Show.
Mr. Ramsey is one of those few guys that builds bikes, makes parts and is the tech editor of a major magazine — Cycle Source Magazine.
He is always in demand as a builder, a judge or a trouble shooter. The last time we caught up with Will was at the US Championship of the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show in Chicago. He awarded Jeremy Cupp as the King of the Builders for his No. 7 motorcycle. Later in 2017 the bike will be competing in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Europe for the World Champion of Custom Bike Building.
