Defeat is not always bad especially if you can process it correctly. Never under estimate the heart of a champion. A champion will transform a trial into triumph, a stumbling block into a stepping-stone and ultimately the agony of defeat into the thrill of victory! Such was the case for Mike Pruss of South Florida Choppers. After losing at a bike competition to a bike with a friction drive, Pruss challenged himself and his team to return with a vengeance. The end result would be a twin turbo charged chopper (did I mention it had a friction drive) that would place 12th overall on the biggest stage, the World Championship of Bike Building. The bike went on to grace the cover of Hot Bike Magazine in 2006. From that point on, not only has this bike changed the game, it’s Game Over!
Game Over has blazed many trails over the years including the path from Florida to Houston, Texas and into the garage of its most recent owner Davilon Carter. Carter, an avid custom car and bike enthusiast and owner of SouthCoastOnline.Net, a motorcycle accessory e-commerce site, has owned Game Over for a few years and has made modifications of his own to the bike.
Carter recently sold “Game Over” and is currently in the beginning stages of building a new “Cool Whip” that we will also be profiling soon.
