This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
When we were given the chopper with the Ambitions EP, I was ecstatic! ... until I realized that meant every sim who had that bike had to ride around looking like an SOA wannabe. And then we weren't given any more motorcycles in our EPs. Lame! You're MUCH more likely to see a standard street bike than a custom chopper where I live!

This bike is made directly from the EA chopper, with a few changes. The handlebars are shortened and rotated, and your sim will reach for them and hold them correctly. The footboards no longer aligned once I changed the handlebar position, so they're gone and your sim's feet will rest on footpegs now. There is one extra preset included now (no. 2), which is an extremely ill-used, heavily-corroded bike. The "rusty" preset only has one editable channel--the seat. All of the other presets have their original four channels.

There is a flaw in the handlebars, which I've pointed out. I haven't been able to correct it yet, but if I can, I will!

Requires Ambitions to use. I hope you and your sims will enjoy it!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
