Where Did The Name Come From?

"ManchVegas" was derived from illegal gambling in local businesses during the late 1980s or early '90s. Many pizza shops and local bars had video poker machines that would pay out real money. The nickname was coined following a city-wide bust of these machines. It was then adopted as a lampoon of the city's limited entertainment opportunities. Recently the term has become a source of pride as the city's entertainment scene has grown.

Where Did Low Life Cycles Come From?

A low-life or lowlife is a term for a person who is considered morally unacceptable by their community, especially those who exploit others for their own selfish purposes. Examples of people who are often called "lowlifes" are the dregs of society: drug dealers, drug users, alcoholics, those with bad hygiene, thieves, liars, thugs, hustlers, con artists and pimps.[1] Often, the term is used as an indication of disapproval of antisocial or destructive behaviors, usually bearing a connotation of contempt and derision. This usage of the word dates to 1911.

My parents bought me my 1st Chopper from Sears in 1975 when I was 13 and even then I didn’t just ride it but I had to customize it so it would be different from everyone else. From then on I used to buy mini bikes and go-carts that needed work; I would rebuild the motors, customize and sell to buy something else.

My Grandfather was a member of the Blue Knights motorcycle club of Massachusetts, I used to hang out with him on the weekends while he was making custom leather motorcycle bags in his heated shed when I was in my early 20’s. One day I ask him “what is that motor in the box Gramps” He explained that it was a 1959 Harley-Davidson 900 XLH motor that needed work. I said that I wanted a Harley someday and he said why don’t you take this motor and built your own bike. So I took it home and started going to swap meets until I finally had it finished around 2 years later. I remember taking it to Laconia for my first time and drove it proud down the Weirs Strip. I always remember having a crowd of people around me watching me kick it over to see if this kid could get it running.

I finally wanted to get into a newer style Harley so in 1997 I traded my 1968 Corvette Roadster that I completely restored over a 10 year period for a 1995 Fatboy with 5K miles on it; I was on top of the world! Then I decided to change all the sheet metal to a new color two years later and then went on to totally customize the entire bike two years after. I really enjoyed working on the Evolution motor back then and still love the EVO today.

I packed up the family in 2000 sold our house in MASS and bought a house in NH the “Live Free or Die” state; four years later in 2004 I registered the name “Manch Vegas Choppers” in NH. People that meet me for the first time learn quickly that I live and breathe Harley Davidson motorcycles; some have commented that I bleed 20-50 motor oil. Today I own ten of my own bikes from a Knucklehead to Panheads, Shovelheads and Evo’s. I am always looking to learn as much as I can about all Harley’s.


Dodi O'Halloran

I have always wanted to get my motorcycle license. One day I seriously considered it, signed up for the weekend safety course and three days later, I was free. I highly recommend the safety course for any rider. I still utilize the safety tips and methods I learned in the course, each time I ride.

My first bike had to be a Harley Davidson. I believe in American made and the brand history that Harley Davidson represents. My first bike was a Harley Davidson 2009 Sportster Nightster, XL 1200N. I loved the look and felt very comfortable on the bike. After a few months of riding the Sportster and getting even more comfortable, I realized that this is a great bike to ride around town and short distances. I met many new people and friends in the community of motorcyclists and started to take longer rides and touring. I felt I wanted to explore something different to ride for the longer touring adventures. When I met Donnie, I immediately appreciated his love and knowledge of the Harley Davidson motorcycle. He introduced and taught me all I know about Harley’s today. He encouraged me to try the HD Softail Deluxe. I will admit, I was a bit intimidated at first by this beautiful mechanical object, but when I rode it, I was hooked. The HD Softail is a well balanced bike and very comfortable to ride anywhere for any length of time. Through this experience, I want to share how important it is to be sure to purchase the bike that you are safe and comfortable riding but one that you can also grow into. I now own 5 Harley’s of my own in both the Dyna and Softail class.

For me, riding is such a rewarding, exhilarating and liberating experience. It is my therapy. Perhaps one word best sums up motorcycle riding: fun! It’s what I had this morning when I took my bike out for a ride.
