  • For Sale El Skitzo's Harley Chopper

    Well the time has come after 3 years of tinkering with this bike to think about the next project, so she's up for sale.

    Custom built Harley Davidson powered rigid Chopper. Very much styled after the Choppers Steg Von Heintz and Indian Larry were building at Pyscho Cycles back in the 1980s.
    • Santee rigid frame
    • 1984 Harley Davidson 1340cc Evo engine
    • 4 speed transmission, kick start only
    • 3" open belt drive primary
    • Wideglide front end with dual disk brakes
    • Hydraulic clutch
    • Braided lines throughout
    • 21" front wheel, 16" polished fat boy rear wheel with new rear tyre, disk and sprocket
    • Modified 4.2 gallon Porkster gas tank with screw in Mooneyes spinner gas cap and Pingel petcock
    • One off hand made sissy bar
    • One off hand tooled leather saddle carved and trimmed by Leathroo in Geelong
    • Custom paint featuring scallops on the left, flames on top, entwined flames on the right. Satin metallic black body work with graphics in high gloss metallic pearl, with edges hand pinstriped by Von Kustard
    • Fully licensed as a 1965 Harley so legal without indicators
    • No riding on permits or having to spend thousands more on Engineering and changes to the bike to actually get rego, ride it home now with six months current WA registration.
    • Engine number, chassis number and colours listed on registration paper work match the bike!
    • Can be easily insured, I currently have full comprehensive insurance with Shannons
    • Upcoming full feature article in OzBike magazine
    • Bike is ridden regularly and is an easy and comfortable bike to ride

    Asking price is $18,500 but that is negotiable, but selling well below my costs (ingoring labour) so don't waste your time and mine with crazy lowball offers.

    May consider trade/swap for 40s to 50s American car.

        For sale again and this time serious about moving it on to start the next project in my life. How serious? Asking price is now only $16,000 which is not much more than I paid for it before I started the project.

        You'd be lucky to buy a new 883 Sporty and give it a fake try-hard Bobber look for that price

              In response I had to a query this week asking if I'd sell it cheaper minus the gas tank. I understand a lot of people prefer the look of a Sportster gas tank on a rigid Chopper and given this gas tank has a lot of sentimental value to me the answer is yes. I'd instantly drop $1,000 off the price, so we can start at $15,000 and negotiate from there minus the gas tank.

              That is more than enough to buy a Sporty gas tank, petcock, mount it, get a wild killer paint job on it and pocket a heap of change.
