Hi Ale, I modified a 1/35 scale WWII BMW kit to make this model. This is a 1950’s war surplus hot rod motorcycle. “Choppers” were created when people bought motorcycles and ‘chopped’ off everything that wasn’t frame or engine. I wanted it to look used and abused, like somebody had a good time with it. I did the same thing they did and eliminated the sidecar and machine guns. I made the exhaust pipes and handlebars with wire and solder. The clutch, throttle, and brake cables are 4 thousandths of an inch motor winding wire, the same diameter as my beard hairs.
