What really is the difference between a chopper or a "custom motorcycle"?

Is it just me or does the word chopper not have the real, authentic meaning that it used to have? Nowadays it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between what is really a chopper or not. What is the difference between a chopper and a custom motorcycle (if there is a difference)? I plan on building choppers real soon but I want to make I have the right idea of what really makes a chopper a chopper. Some people say they build choppers (OCC, Jesse James, etc..), but other people argue against them saying they dont build choppers but that they build custom bikes, it gets confusing sometimes. Whats your input on this? Thanks.

Which is the most comfortable japanese custom motorcycle below 650cc for a long trip?

Thinking of a motorcycle that doesnt give a hard time for your kidneys after long hours of riding (meaning, hard shocks). A motorcycle that is not to heavy, but can handle well the combined weight of two passangers of 300 punds (136 kg).
the 300 pounds is both passangers… not each!

Need a local vendor for custom motorcycle license plate frames in San Francisco CA area?

I am looking for a vendor of custom license plate frames for motorcycles. We have a font that is trademarked and need it on the frames so we don’t want to use a online vendor (even though I’ve found some good ones) because we need to ensure the font is not duplicated for any other use aside from ours. Anyways does anyone in the Northern California area, preferably near the Bay area know of anyone that does plate frames? Saw one pop up at the mall back in the day but don’t know of anything free standing that will be around for more then just Christmas.

Also, not lookin for the cheap ones that are just a plastic piece that’s cut then glued to the frame, I want the good one piece ones. Need someone that can do Black and Chrome frames. This is for a group of guys here in the area, not for advertising so need a company that doesn’t have a huge quantity requirement for orders.
