1977 Oldschool Short Chop

E. from Las Vegas, Nevada, sent us these photos of his eye catching 1977 Harley-Davidson Sportster Short Chop.

This bike is of a rather radical design. E. would describe his bike as a "1977 Harley-Davidson Sportster Vintage Old School Chopper Rat Bike Bobber Iron Head Hard Tail Rigid Frame Project Bike".

Whatever you name her, she was cetainly not built for sissies...

Suicide Clutch / Gearshift Handle

Please note on these pictures that this Low Rider Chopper has very "clean" handlebars without too much clutter of controls and wires.

This has been achieved by mounting a combined clutch / gearshift handle that can be reached right next to the gas tank.
