Azzkikr Custom Motorcycles plan to debut their Canucks themed chopper at the 2012 Vancouver Motorcycle show.

You may think motorbikes and hockey have nothing in common, but the machine and the sport do have some subtle similarities. Think about it, both are fast, potentially dangerous and are idealized as "masculine." Also, Darren Dreger really likes both, and mothers often don't like to watch their children do either!
