In Europe, Charles Grégoire, known as Charly the Red Baron, of Red Baron Choppers, has been building custom motorcycles for a little over five years. He hails from the city of Liernieux, Belgium, and has earned the reputation as the builder with two golden hands, because every bike project he touches is a show winner.
Charly is one of those builders who is fun to be around. He’s approachable and can hold an honest conversation with anybody, unlike many bike builders today that will quickly charge an arm and leg just to shake the only remaining hand of a combat veteran returning from the Iraqi War. Charly enjoys his work and it’s not all about money, he was and always will be a bike builder first.
When asked why he got into the bike building profession he replied, “Because I didn’t have the money to buy the catalog parts I admired, so I decided to start making my own.”
