Paughco has been a family business for the past 45 years. What started out as a Tool and Die company for the Aerospace industry turned into one of the biggest and most influential aftermarket motorcycle brands on the planet. By the late 60's they had little gizmos cruising around the moon and cruising down the open road at the very same time. With their history in classic American choppers and restoration projects, they have seen many trends come and go. They have expanded their operation and changed with the advances in technology, but they have managed to keep the formula the same, to make quality parts for the kinds of bikes they love. This is why for almost half of a century, Paughco is regarded as the Godfather of the Chopper industry.
