Vintage Wheels #10: Choppers!
Admittedly, the closest I ever came to own a chopper was my Green Machine back in the early seventies. I did enjoy watching Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, but that's where my chopper experience ends. But around this same time, a motorcycle culture was emerging in the States, and the chopper was their ultimate symbol: speed, coolness, anti-authority, hell on wheels. Easy Rider simply underlined its awesomeness.
I came across some really amazing photographs from the 1970s featuring these extended front motorcycles. Don't look for helmets in any of these photos - you won't find them. What you will find is the seventies at its finest. Take a look.
I recommend you print these, frame them and hang them in every room of your house as a constant reminder of what it means to be totally awesome.
