If you were into custom bikes and choppers in the 70s and 80s you could not go around the guys from AME. The German company took on the TUV and very strict german laws and provided chopper parts that were proved and tested, a must if you wanted to drive your bike on the streets and not get hassled by the man!! Up to this day German chopperbuilders have to let an official check every single part they bolt on their bikes! Every single bolt or modification is also documented in the registration of the bike. Think about it, it's crazy!!!
