Possibly following the cinema success of the film "Easy Rider", custom bike design in the UK took on a new direction, the building of Choppers, which helped lead to the establishment of a motorcycle club devoted purely to riders of custom machinery. In 1973 the National Chopper Club was conceived and formed by Bill Gill, Pete Gaertner and Syd Wellings with the aims of:

1· Generate a better understanding between Chopper enthusiasts, other road users and the general public.

2· Improve standards in safety and construction of Choppers.

3· Bring all Chopper riders closer together.

To partially lift a quote from an early Club poster, "The National Chopper Club exists to promote, protect and enjoy Custom biking in the UK". Separate from the later enlargement of the club within europe this is an ideal which is practiced with heart and exists over 30 years by now. Today the Diamond Nation unites choppers, trikers and fighters. Since 1990 twinkeles the Diamond in Germany. In the course of time more and more German countys are founded.

Until 2003 the County Westfalen had been the home of members from the Ruhr area. As it could be a long tramp to the Sauerland above all in winter, the Ruhrmembers looked for their own residence and founded the County Ruhrpott in March 2003.

In search of a clubhouse we found one quite fast in Witten. The old cold store had been renovated which required a good piece of craftsmanship. In october 2003 after six month labour we could celebrate the opening with many european members. The result were three years in which we arranged parties, events and twice a month open evenings. It was an absolute cool time but in summer 2006 we get the message that the cold store should be knocked down in midyear 2007. Our search of a new clubhouse succeeded quite fast. Beginning of march 2007 we started the renovation in Waltrop. On the 28th April 2007 we already celebrated a opening ceremony with many guests.

2011 we found a new clubhouse in Bochum and we hope its for a longer time...
