This story initially ran within the January 2008 problem of Road Chopper.
I hate yellow choppers, I actually do. If yellow wanted a experience to the hospital, I wouldn’t give it one if my head was bleeding. Nevertheless, the colour seems good on this Harley-Davidson Knucklehead chop. This can be a basic construct if ever there was one and its coolness completely overrides my distaste for a sure main shade. Most of this machine is the unique article from the manufacturing facility and a lot of the remainder of it’s basic chopper components from when these components have been the newest and best, just like the 1950s Anderson footpegs.
It’s a ’47 Knuckle (motor and body), origin: unknown. What is understood is that in 1988 Fred Wright and Mike Kaplan each needed to purchase it from the unique proprietor. Cash makes the world go ’spherical although—Fred had it, Mike didn’t. Though Wright bought the chopper, he let Kaplan experience it as soon as shortly after buy.
This nod to good sportsmanship was par for the course between these two longtime pals. Mike and Fred met years earlier than when Wright was wrenching scoots in Berdoo (a.okay.a. San Bernardino, California), again when Kaplan was a child. Afterward they bumped into one another once more and have become finest pals, working of their store for 15 years.
