Marie Leveaux.

Down in Lou´siana where the black trees grow Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveaux.

That’s the lyrics to a song about Marie Laveau, the Voodoo Queen that lived in the swamps around New Orleans in the late 1800’s. I like the idea of a chopper that looks like it just drove out of a swamp, that’s why there’s not much shiny on this bike.

This album shows some photos of the construction, the finished bike, the construction pics of the second revision – which is still in process; although it’s on the back burner these days.

I purchased this bike new in 1996. Since then it has sported several different paint schemes and undergone many modifications and designs. The latest version adds a rear seat for a special passenger. Check out the gallery to see more.
