Meet Mondo Porras
Mondo Porras has been defining the “look” of motorcycles since 1967. Together with Denver Mullins, custom builder and founder of Denver’s Choppers, Mondo created some of the first aftermarket parts for the burgeoning chopper industry.
Denver’s Choppers globally influential extended springer front ends and custom frames were influential in establishing the “long-bike” phenomenon that is synonymous with “choppers” and still popular around the world. This distinctive look has earned Mondo many awards in the custom bike world.
For more than 50 years, Mondo Porras has been building custom motorcycles and promoting the sport. Through television, books, magazines, and producing vintage chopper shows, his influence continues to this day, and his peers have deemed him the “Godfather of Choppers.”
Mondo has been a positive role model for Mexican American bike builders and has a large following in the Mid-East, Asia, and Sweden. Mondo is known and respected worldwide.
He has been featured on Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off, Motorcycle Mania, The Art of the Chopper 2 book, as well as countless custom motorcycle magazines. Mondo has been on the cover of Easyriders Magazine four times.
Mondo was part of the “Blood Sweat and Gears Tour“ with Billy Lane. They toured around the country building bikes on stage and giving them to deserving military vets.
Mondo is a member of the International Master Bike Builders Assoc. and Hall of Fame and travels around the world promoting the art of custom motorcycles.
This show is likely to bring together the area’s largest assembly of choppers in 2022. Don’t miss the chance to kick off your rally celebrating this iconic style.
