HARLEY-DAVIDSON KH1954 GENERAL CHICARA ART5C

By April 25, 2013Motorcycles

Chicara Nagata shares his fifth creation with Megadeluxe. Chicara is one of those true mad-scientist of the custom motorcycle world. It’s as if one day Willy Wonka decided he hated all things candy, closes up shop, and walks away. But he still needs that creative fix, so he looks around, and decides to modify a 1939 Harley-Davidson. He then toils for several thousand hours on this build, learning along the way. His modified ’39 Harley (again this is his first build) wins the 2006 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in its class. Seriously, who pulls this kind of outrageous stunt? Oh that’s right…the man is a mad scientist. And luckily, not of the evil variety.

“I do not have an expensive high-level machine. I do shave, sheet metal, welding and metalworking using a hand tool. It takes about 5,000 to 7,000 hours to make one motorcycle.”
