ZZ chop: The FORCE

Almost Everything customer Billy Budde famed for his custom choppers & revolutionary motorcycle design
Almost Everything was honored to have had the one & only Billy Budde in the shop today. Billy is no longer building motorcycles and his Suburban needs a paint job. So he was here for a quote.

Billy is a local hero. His San Leandro motorcycle shop anchored the custom scene in California long before places like Orange County Choppers and Jesse James Choppers existed. Click the links below for vintage article and current discussions about his revolutionary designs.

  1. Trying to find Billy budde to verify the bike I have was built by him. 702-788-4088 tom. Thank you.

  2. Sorry for the delayed reply. I tried the phone number we had for Billie Budde and it is disconnected. Hopefully he has just moved but he was getting on in years when he came to the shop.

    1. Please let him know that the distressed lady whose daughter he saved from bullies still remembers him and considers him to be her personal hero.He was brave and a true gentleman.Unforgettable.
