1961 XLCH HD Sportster chopper by Herzbube

61 Harley Davidson Sportster chopperMeet another Harley Davidson Sportster. Herzbube motorcycles, based in Berlin and providing not only customization but also restoration and individual construction of custom parts, intended to rebuild a 61 XLCH Harley-Davidson into “…a wild, fast and loud motorcycle” that would look like a classic chopper from the 60th. Above you can see what the bike looks like. Classic chopper features all over the bike.

custom HD fuel tank and the seatThe custom peanut fuel tank and the high handlebars, known as “ape hangers”, make the motorcycle slimmer than usual. This especially can be useful when riding it in traffic. While “squeezing” a wide motorcycle between the cars can be a problem, this one needs significantly less space to slip through and “be far away before the angry guy in the car next to you shifts in first gear”.
