Captain America the Chopper

It's probably the best-known chopper in the world, and to so many,
the Captain America bike from the film "Easy Rider" defines the
breed. This bike from the film "Easy Rider" epitomizes the chopper
genre and brought it to the mainstream. It's about as classic as they
get, from its raked-out, brakeless front end to the all-star paint job
to the rigid rear end. It also doesn't hurt that it starred alongside
Peter Fonda in the most famous motorcycle movie ever made. Captain America
was built by Fonda, bike customizer Tex Hall and fellow actor Dan Haggerty
for the 1969 motion picture "Easy Rider". It was one of two motorcycles,
along with the Wild West-inspired "Billy Bike" that carried Fonda and
Dennis Hopper eastward from Los Angeles to New Orleans in their search for
America. Starting life as a 1952 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide, which Fonda
bought at a police auction, Captain America retained its original H-D Panhead
engine, while everything else was stripped, bent or extended for the chopper
look. Of course, that meant creature comforts like turn signals, a front brake,
seat springs, a front fender and a horn found their way to the bottom of the
trash bin. Everything left was then reshaped and dipped in chrome;  Well,
everthing except for the American flag tank and the ultra-high back sissy
bar seat. Two Captain America bikes were built for the movie. One was stolen,
along with both Billy Bikes, after filming, and the other was crashed in the
final scene. Rebuilt by Haggerty, the crashed Captain America was sold at
auction in 1996.
The Harley-Davidson 1969 Easy Rider motorcycle was made in the USA. It featured
an air-cooled 45 degree v-twin four stroke engine. The ignition was from a
battery and coil. The engine was rated at 60 b.h.p. at 6,000 r.p.m. The
displacement was 74 cu. in. based upon a bore and stroke of 3.4" X 4". Fuel
was supplied via a single Linkert carburetor. Getting the power to the ground
was by a four speed transmission. The suspension featured front telescopic forks
extended and raked with a rigid rear. Braking was provided by a rear drum.
The motorcycle weighed in at approximately 600 pounds. Top speed for the bike
was 90 m.p.h. What an Amazing Bike! Collect your Captain America Chopper Now!
