Welcome to the Choppers Cycle web site. Choppers Cycle is run by the Panzica family with three generations on board. The Panzicas have owned Choppers Cycle since 2007, however, the Panzica family and the motorcycle industry go back much further.
Nace started a motorcycle company with some friends in San Jose Ca in 1970. In the 80’s, the company was just under 200 employees and had sales exceeding $20 million. When he left the company in 1998, Custom Chrome was the largest supplier of aftermarket parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles in the world. Not one to fade off into retirement, Nace started some smaller businesses that are what you see today. Bagger Werx is the parts manufacturing side of Choppers Cycle, making everything from drop seat kits to fully assembled handlebar control kits. There is also Choppers Cycle, where you can order anything you need for your ride.
Nace is not the only one with a long history in the motorcycle industry. His son John has spent his whole life around motorcycles and the industry. John is now in charge of the warehouse and shipping departments. John’s son, who is Nace’s grandson, has also been around the business his whole life. When his school work will allow he is helping with inventory or helping to build the web site.
The rest of the crew here at Choppers Cycle has also spent a fair amount of time with motorcycles. The other staff members inside the office have over forty five years of experience combined in the motorcycle industry. Joyce, the office manager, previously worked for a large supplier of shop equipment in the bay area. She had worked there for over twenty years before she decided to move to Choppers Cycle. Joey who does a bit of everything has over 20 plus years in the motorcycle industry. He has worked at large distributors and OE companies. Our newest addition, Sarah, had worked at a local shop for three years. She was hired to handle customer service and has quickly expanded her role here at Choppers Cycle.
