SWEDA X QUEEN LEKHA CHOPPERS
Born and raised in the same city of Yogyakarta, Sweda has been teaming up with Queenlekha Choppers to collaborate and create a custom piece together. Not only collaborate on bespoke pieces of jewelry, but we also build custom bike parts to participate in various prestigious shows. Each bike that we worked on together took part at Yokohama Hotrod Custom Show in Japan and won 2-3 pick awards in a row. We put so much effort and detail into it to make it shiny and stand out from the crowd.
2018 - THE FALCON BIKE
Falcon Bike is an Oldskool chopper with S&S Knuckleheads KN 74 specially designed and displayed by Queen Lekha Chopper in Kustomfest 2018 which also participated in the 27th Annual Yokohama Hotrod Custom Show in Japan. The bike is paying homage and bringing about Indian tribe characteristics. We took part in building the bike by exclusively making the Shifter Knobs, Gas Tank Cap, and Air Filter Cap. All of them are like sons, though our most favorite piece is the Shifter knob. It’s impeccably made from amalgamating 3 materials: silver, stone, and brass. The design creation and stones set up are made in such a way to resemble Indian and Native American jewelry styles. It’s like adorning the bike with Native Indian-cultured finery. The artistic Falcon bike brought home 2 awards from FKC Mooneyes Spain and Cool Bike from Mooneys.

2019 - GARUDA BIKE
After receiving many awards in the 27th Annual Yokohama HotRod Custom Show 2018 with the Falcon bike, QLC invited us again to collaborate and partake in the next bike project called Garuda for the 28th Annual Yokohama HotRod Custom Show 2019. Garuda is a mighty mythical golden creature that is used as Indonesia’s national emblem. Garuda symbolizes the virtue of knowledge, power, bravery, loyalty, and discipline. The bike was designed in patterns, style, shape, paint, and detailed parts that best represent Indonesia. In this collaboration, we had the opportunity to pour out our creativity in the Shifter Knobs and Gas Tank Cap. Considering the theme, we decided to point up the Garuda by making it in 3D (Realis) style from brass material. As for the Gas Tank Cap we also chose Garuda’s head but in 2D (Relief) style with a traditional touch that can enhance the artistic features. This futuristic Garuda bike received 3 pick awards from Ben “THE BOOG”, Tom Heavy, and FKC Mooneyes Spain. We are and always will be content to have a project with QLC to build stunning bikes to introduce Indonesia's custom culture globally.
