Born and raised in the south side of Chicago by a large Italian family with a mob background, I came to understand the importance of family and business. Fast good looking cars and bikes were always the way we rolled. Doing things better than the next guy was the primary rule and you earned their respect.

street chopper and by popular demand Big Tony’s was born as a full service chopper repair facility and Harley remodeling center. Working with Kenny in the shop, we felt we could build a better bike than what we had been seeing and “One for the money” was born. It had the looks of a high -end bike with an affordable price. Presently we are building a wide array of “customs” for guys and gals. We teamed up with Angel Sandoval of Sandoval’s Custom Paintwerks (The Paint Pimp) & Jason Vanderwoude of NSD Paintwerks (no two alike). We loved their work so much, we agreed they would become our in-house painter. Big Tony’s has now become a full service chopp shop.
We would like to thank you for visiting our site and look forward to hearing from you concerning the bike of your dreams...or next radical toy; we can build it to your specifications. For the do-it yourselfer, ask us about our pre- fabricated rolling chassis kits in primer or painted. From Pro-street to Pro Chopp, mild to wild, any rake, any stretch, 2.5 to 5 in. drop seats, air ride front ends, any type of swing arm, any type of wheel from a front 21-23 with 17-20 on the rear 260-360 wide, any engine from 113-155 (under 113 = slow ass bike, criminal in some states). Our bikes are built to ride, go fast and look bad ass (not always in that order). So if you don't like drawing crowds wherever you go, opening huge cans of whoop-ass on other choppers at stop lights (love to see those crying faces) and taking first place trophies at shows, then these are not the bikes for you!
