This is John Chan’s gift to himself after returning from Iraq and Chuck being a veteran himself has special respect for our military. Chan’s bike started life as a stock 2006 Heritage Softail. Palumbo converted it into a unique bike with the CP Kustoms touch: custom wheels and tires, one off handle bars, lots of black powder coat parts, one off headlight & tail light, custom paint, custom exhaust, custom seat, and custom turn signals.

This was one of CP’s 1st hardcore choppers. When Chuck thinks about this bike he thinks about Dave Batista – big bike, strong, powerful, fast… Dave was one of the 1st guys to order a bike from CP-that helped Chuck get a start in the high end custom motorcycle business and Chuck will always be grateful to Dave, a great guy. This bike was also featured in American Iron Magazine.
Chuck was inspired to build the War Machine chopper by his younger brother Chris Palumbo who was a war hero, receiving the Silver Star after being shot down in Iraq. Chuck, Chris, and their dad Chuck, Sr., are all veterans. Chuck built the bike over 2 months, then rode it across country, raising money for charity by selling raffle tickets and auctioning the bike for Fuel for the Fallen. It was very rewarding to be able to give back and to ride the War...
This is a bare bones bike. It’s a 1980 80″ shovelhead motor with S&S cases, suicide clutch, 5 in a 4 speed case, and kick start only. Most of the parts were laying around the shop which made it kind of fun to throw it together.
This bike is a west coast style hot rod chopper with a bare bones look to it. It’s fast & powerful. It includes a tribute to Chavo’s uncle Eddie Guerrero on the tank – a 63 Impala that Eddie and Chavo drove on tv. This chopper was featured in Hot Bike Magazine.
This started life as a Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster and was transformed into a VINTAGE-modern dirt tracker. Rey likes everything blacked out so Chuck blacked out a lot of parts and highlighted the bike in armey green.
This was a brand new Harley Davidson Nightster that went straight from the dealership to the CP Kustoms shop. It has a bunch of custom parts as well as custom satin paint, custom wheels and custom bars.
This red bike has Rey written all over it – a lot of twisted steel to give it that Mexican, low-rider bike look. This is a late 60s early 70s look with modern technology woven into it. The bike is smaller but doesn’t look small – it still looks like a big bike. This was CP’s 2nd full blown custom and Chuck is grateful for Rey’s support. This bike was featured in American Iron Magazine and Hot Bike...
One man, one set of hands ...Each design is an extension of an individual's personality.
Chuck was born in Providence, RI and his first bike was a Sears and Roebuck rigid mini bike that he was riding at the age of 4. A year later Chuck and his father pulled out the 3.5 horsepower motor and replaced it with a 5 horse Tecumseh. What a death trap. His first hot rod-that explains a lot! BMX bikes came next.Learn More
