Illusion Cycles in Westminster, Calif., is now offering to consumers a limited number of Capt. America Commemorative choppers featuring many components made by West Coast Choppers.

Rusty Coones and Rod Requejo, co-owners of Illusion, say they will be working closely with WCC. The bikes, they say, will have an unmistakable WCC look.

Each Illusion Capt. America will be hand-fabricated at the Illusion factory to meet the personal requirements of each customer.

As with Illusion’s HellRazor bikes, Capt. America Commemoratives will feature driveline components that are CARB- and EPA-compliant. Each machine is covered by a full one-year factory warranty and qualifies for extended warrantee coverage from aftermarket companies.

Illusion motorcycles are listed in both the Kelly Blue Book and NADA directory, according to Illusion.
