"HARLEY DAVIDSON 1947EL KNUCKLEHEAD CHOBBER BOPPER" ['KNUCKLE4036'] . . . . ONCE AGAIN THE LADS FROM THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN TAKING AUTHENTICITY TO ANOTHER LEVEL . . . . BUMPED INTO THIS ONE A WHILE AGO AND HAVE KEPT COMING BACK TO DROOL EVER SINCE . . . . I DON'T GIVE A RAT'S ARSE WHAT YOU WANNA CALL THE THING BUT IT'S ONE KING HELL COOL BIT OF KIT IN MY EYES . . . . LABELS MEAN FUCK ALL, IT'S JUST TOO GOOD.
Way back before the whole post-Hollister, mainstream media proliferated view of those who were labelled by the straight-laced AMA as the '1%' of the riding population, most hot bikes of the Hoggly variety looked basically like the raw-boned, bare essentials, bastard child featured in this vidjo . . . . everyone knows the story behind bobbing and then ultimately, at least according to the popular consensus, chopping, and when it comes to an illustration of the former, this little fucker rates right at the pointy end of the pyramid of cool . . . . everything that was deemed useless and dead weight has been jettisoned leaving nothing other than what's required to get the job done when it comes to nailing it wide open and going beyond broke, the bobbed rear fender sitting atop the mean arsed grooved slick is the total horn, the perfectly positioned pipe, no cables, no front brake, the axed tanks, risers, the semi knobby up front . . . . not to mention the stance and the brilliant lines of the frame against the springer/bars set up and the balance between rear and front wheels, this thing stinks of nothing less than the business end of the knuckle stick, yeah, I like it . . . . a lot !!!!
