The 2004 Big Dog Motorcycles Chopper DT was a custom-built motorcycle produced by Big Dog Motorcycles, an American motorcycle manufacturer known for its high-end, custom-designed bikes. The Chopper DT was one of the models offered by Big Dog Motorcycles during that time.

Here are some key features and details of the 2004 Big Dog Motorcycles Chopper DT:

  1. Design: The Chopper DT had a classic chopper design, characterized by its long, low-slung profile, extended front end, and a rigid frame. It embodied the iconic American chopper style with a focus on a stretched-out appearance.

  2. Engine: The Chopper DT was powered by a powerful V-twin engine, typically sourced from a reputable manufacturer like S&S or RevTech. These engines offered substantial displacement and provided the bike with strong performance and an unmistakable rumbling sound.

  3. Frame: The Chopper DT featured a rigid frame design, which means it lacked rear suspension. This design choice contributed to the bike’s distinctive look and enhanced its visual appeal.

  4. Suspension: The Chopper DT was equipped with a telescopic front fork that provided limited suspension travel. The rear section of the bike had a rigid rear end, as mentioned earlier, which added to the bike’s aesthetic but could result in a slightly harsher ride compared to motorcycles with rear suspension.

  5. Wheels and Tires: The Chopper DT usually featured large-diameter wheels with custom-designed rims, emphasizing the bike’s bold and aggressive stance. The front wheel was typically larger than the rear wheel, contributing to the chopper’s characteristic rake and stretched appearance. Wide, low-profile tires provided ample grip and complemented the bike’s overall style.

  6. Customization: Big Dog Motorcycles offered various customization options for their bikes, allowing customers to tailor the Chopper DT to their preferences. This included choices such as paint schemes, graphics, chrome accents, and additional accessories like handlebars, seats, and exhaust systems.

  7. Performance: With its powerful V-twin engine and lightweight construction, the Chopper DT delivered impressive performance on the road. It provided strong acceleration, thrilling torque, and an overall exhilarating riding experience.

It’s important to note that Big Dog Motorcycles ceased operations in 2011. Therefore, if you’re looking for a Chopper DT, you may need to explore the pre-owned market or contact collectors or enthusiasts who might still own these models.

The deceased original owner of this 2004 Big Dog Chopper DT purchased the bike new in 2004 and only rode over 25K miles on it before falling ill.  That averages out to approximately fifteen hundred miles annually. The family of the original owner is hoping to find a great home for this rare and great looking chopper.
