Here a little Bobber as Harley original as it can be except sheet metal, mid controls, generator and battery. Of course, there is a lot of fabrication work that only a pro can detect. It’s an original VL frame modified to accept a 1974 EL drive train. The amazing part is that this bike is in its 3rd life. Stock, then Chopper in the 70’s and now a Bobber. This is the work of Rick at US Chopper, a relatively new builder in the business but who already made his mark with his board track components, chassis and nostalgic custom bikes (10th place at the AMD World Championship) Difficult to appreciate in this picture is the gold leaf paint job with candy tangerine accents and some signature pinstriping by an artist painter named Harpoon. I love period correct bikes, and this Bobber fits in the family of timeless beauties. More at US Chopper. Nostalgia guaranteed.
Correction: Mike Beland is right. Just reversed the last 2 numbers while typing. It’s a 1947 EL model (telephone was ringing?) Cyril
