Something about these American made bikes rubs me the right way.  The Factory Custom Cycles is a division of Thompson Choppers dedicated to producing affordable and custom motorcycles.  I couldn't find any pricing information and am very curious to know what they consider "affordable."

Obviously inspired by different early American motorcycle era's, the Model 23A bears leaf spring forks as well as a leaf spring rear end that guarantees a comfy ride while the 23B rocks a "Springer" front end.  Incorporated into both are the bobber look and drop loop frames found on early Boardtrackers.  I think drop handlebars would complete the aesthetics of these bikes.
