Danny Schneider has turned his passion into a profession and builds innovative custom bikes in his Hardnine Choppers garage. He sells his bikes worldwide. He was able to realize the dream of owning his own company thanks to the support of his friends as well as the partnership of AXA.

Danny Schneider was regarded as one of the biggest talents in the Swiss freestyle motocross scene until he was involved in a serious accident in 2002. During training, he fell and broke his ankle 18 times – it was the end of his motocross career. But Danny Schneider has found a new way to live his passion for motorbikes: He founded Hardnine Choppers, a garage for custom bikes. 

With no previous knowledge, Danny began working on motorcycles in his Bern workshop. With the help of colleagues, he quickly honed his skills as a mechanic. In 2009, the breakthrough: he exhibited his bikes at all the major trade fairs and won awards for customizing. Today, Danny designs custom choppers at the customer's request and transforms conventional machines into handmade one-offs.
