"You meet the nicest douche bags on a Honda."
I wonder how much a chopper like this weighs?
about #500/550-ish wet
sure aint because of fuel.............................what a waste, a bad ass hardtail you can ride two blocks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, pity
The lack of fuel carrying capacity is to ensure that the bike runs out before reaching high speeds. This way the lack of brakes never becomes an issue.
That's a beautiful motorcycle.
oh....so you've never riden one, huh?
Seems high. But then I don't know the weights of a typical older Harley motor.
I was kind of hoping to hear about 350 or 375.
A Knucklehead? No.
An old Harley rigid with no brakes? Yes.
Been there, done that, don't care to wear the T-shirt out in public.
Foot (Suicide) clutch and hand shift sorta requires a front brake, at least in San Francisco.
Lotsa heavy cast iron on the old mils. (40's technology ya know)
#500 would be on the light side.
Definately Preferred....but not required
even in the Bay.
btw...a foot clutch is NOT necessarily a suicide, as the rocker clutch I run is not. (I run the secondary spring on mine)
a suicide is where there's no secondary spring, especially when the rocker set-up is converted over to a car clutch. Things can get real exciting...real fast!
Suicide clutch, no front brake, on a hill in San Francisco. "I had to lay her down".
I hate it when that happens!!!
Always loved rolling back to use the car's bumper behind you to hold you on a hill. Great way to make friends!
I like the minimalist look, the USD forks are an interesting touch as well.
looks like fork covers
Biltwell just came out with something similar.
very nice. And I'll bet it sounds nice too.
Don't say it, unless you have the stones to say it to his face.
I'm not sure about a knuckle but I could bear hug lift a shovel head motor by myself, I am guessing maybe 125# at the most? The tranny is maybe another 40ish tops.
