“Easy Rider” Chopper/Bobber: A modern, retro-classic
“Not a trophy bike – this one is for riding!”
Harley Davidson 2017 Softail Slim
Do you ever wonder why choppers are good looking, but low mileage? Because they are too uncomfortable to ride…not this one…around town or Florida-to-Sturgis, it does it all.
Chopped to perfection, this bike has the vintage looks, but all of the amenities for the long haul: softail suspension, ABS, cruise control, detachable mini-windshield and a USB plug-in at the fork for GPS attachment. Perfect for the 2,000-4,000 mile run.
Ergo-engineered chopped front end from Chopper Supply, LLC, adds an extra 9° of rake (total 41°) and 6 inches of extension preserving the 4.1 inch trail. Slightly decreased turning radius, but near stock low-speed handling performance. High (top) speed stability makes you feel like the bike is welded to the road.
Upturned Heritage handlebars with 6 inch risers, floorboards, highway bars with pegs, stepped Saddleman seat and lowered rear end add to the impeccable riding comfort and keep the rider sitting at under 25 inches (unladen).
A matte finished, custom painted “Captain America” 5 gallon tank blends with the denim black fenders and puts the bobber in this chopper. With the Stage 1 kit and a set of (loud) Bassani radius pipes and people will know that something different is pulling up along side.
The classic 30 inch sissy bar not only adds to the look, but along with the swing arm bag and frame pouch, allow you to strap on two weeks of gear with room to spare. A short detachable sissy bar (hardware already installed) is included, if that’s more to you taste. A right-side, locking, vintage-style chrome toolbox is secure storage for the creative.
Many other extras including: nostalgic handgrips, nostalgic lettered air cleaner, timer and derby covers, chopper rear view mirror, trickle charge connector, etc.
