    Ukiah, California

    Harley Chopper, 1970’s style custom build. California titled as “1970 HD”. Yup, no shit! It is “Not a special construction “…concerning financing, DMV & insurance issues. (very rare to find, w/matching motor/frame #’s). I pay $276 a year for insurance up to the limit of $20K. Motor is a 82’ 80” Police Edition Shovel. Frame is an original late 60’s/early 70’s Jammer frame with DRF serial #. Narrow Glide springer front end is believed to be custom made by Denver’s Choppers (from previous owners documented paperwork). Wheels ($1,800 for both) are laser cut & TIG welded steel!. Not aluminum, so no chrome separation. Complete frame-up restoration done 6K miles ago. Bike is in near perfect shape and it is a “1 kicker” when warm. (kick start only). 1 or 2 sets of 3 kicks to start when cold. No oil leaks….I expressed this point when motor/tranny were rebuilt to my medium spec’s. Motor & tranny were rebuilt with best parts, (pistons, rings, bearings, gears, cam, valves, etc..) heads ported & welded for long reach plugs. Motor was modified and balanced to suit my needs for performance & reliability. Too many parts & modification issues to mention. All is documented in mine & previous owner’s receipts. Some features = All new gears/bearings in 64’ 4 speed tranny. 1.5” Kevlar primary belt drive & nickel plated o-ring secondary chain drive. 1” frame was triple re-welded with discreet gussets added for strength and straightened at the Frame Man in Sacramento, Ca. All joints are molded and painted with House of Colors and 7 clear coats. Tank has ghost flames. Frame & tank have med blue pin striping done by hand. Made my own electrical harness with soldered/heat shrunk terminations. All new electronics, including E.I., 2” multi-function Dakota digital speedometer & electronic key switch. All bolts converted to Allen’s w/caps & bullet acorns nuts wherever possible. ($500 in chrome just nuts & bolts) Most chrome was replaced due to scratch ‘s or microscopic pits. Custom sissy bar and custom Le Para king/queen seats. No expense was spared & everything was done RIGHT. Have receipts for everything & again, previous owners receipts, also for precise documentation. This bike screams! Covered in garage & on battery tender at all times. 45 mpg highway, 35 city. Title is free & clear. This is one of the original old ones that survived. First $25K cash takes it. Cash only. No dreamers, no trades. $38K invested. Don’t insult me with lesser offer.

    Custom Built Motorcycles : Chopper Custom Chopper, 1973 CB500E 4 cyl with quad carbs and twisted springer front end

    $2,200

    Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    For sale is a custom chopper with a 1973 CB500E 4 cylinder engine with quad carbs. The frame is a hard-tail and was most likely made sometime between 1950 and 1979. The front end is a twisted springer that has a pretty decent rake to it. The fuel tank is a 1970's style Coffin Tank with a custom flame job. The engine had a very mild rebuild roughly 300 miles ago (complete internal inspection, new gaskets, seals, and cylinder hone job). All four carbs were rebuilt last year with factory Honda rebuild kits. Both front and rear tires are barely used and have plenty of tread left for several more ridding seasons. The bike had a new clutch installed last year and a new battery installed last week. The bike comes with a clean, street legal, Montana title. This bike has never been crashed, laid down, or anything of that nature. Depending on where you live/what state you register it in, it may or may not be street legal. Any potential buyer needs to be familiar with their local and state laws as they will be responsible for the safe and legal operation of the motorcycle. This is a "Chopper" in the truest sense of the word, there is NOT any turn signals, side view mirrors, or disk brakes. The bike runs and drives great and fires right up every time. The engine has an electric as well as a back-up kick-starter which works great to fire up the bike even with a dead battery. This bike is 40+ years old and does NOT come with a warranty. It is being sold as is, no warranty, no refunds, and no returns. There is NOT an odometer reading as the bike does NOT have an odometer. As with all older bikes you should expect they will need a little TLC and they will have some nicks, dings, chipped paint, rust etc. I tried my best to take very good quality HD pictures to display the condition as accurately as possible. The bike is currently located in Oklahoma City, OK and will be available for pickup once the payment is made in full. If the buyer wishes to ship it, the buyer will be responsible for setting up shipping as well as the cost of shipping/freight.

Its kind of a cool rat bike look it has now to it. with a little work this bike will run, and also is a good base for restoration or another project.

    The 1970s was a starting point for a new league of bikes. In the 1970s buyers and riders would start seeing some of the seeds of motorcycles that we have come to know today.

    Some motorcycle trends from the 1970s include vintage styling making a comeback as well as highly specialized motorcycles. The 1970s saw one of the largest spikes in riders to this date and even faced some of the declines that came in the later years when vehicles and other modes of transportation became popular. Here are some of the best motorcycles from the 1970s.

    This upcoming Kawasaki could go a 1/4 mile in just 12 seconds.

    Kawasaki H2 750

    First on this list is the H2 Mach IV which was a 750 cc 3-cylinder engine production bike built and manufactured by Kawasaki from 1971 through 1975. Straight from the factory, the H2 was able to race a 1/4 mile in just 12 seconds and had upgraded handling compared to its predecessor the Mach III.

    Kawasaki was inspired to build the H2 Mach IV after the success of the H1 Mach III from the late 1960s. The H1 had a 500 cc engine and had 3,500 rpm and redlined at 7,500 rpm.

    This next Italian motorcycle has been manufactured since 1937.

    Moto Morini 3

    The Moto Morini was an Italian motorcycle manufactured by Alfonso Morino since 1937. Over the span of the decades, the Morini saw a lot of updates to its body style and engines.

    The Moto Morino 3 1/2 was the model that housed Morini’s brand new V-twin engined motorcycles which were more powerful and aggressive. Even today, the Moto Morini 3 1/2 is a fan favorite and is highly sought after. At the time of its release, the Morini 3 1/2 cost the same as a Honda CB750.

    The name of this upcoming bike means “to grow taller.”

    Hodaka Super Rat

    During its life span, hundreds of thousands of Hodaka Super Rats would be sold all over the globe. The company that made the Hodaka was located in the state of Oregon and had been previously owned by Shell Oil Company from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s.

    The company’s mission statement read, “Motorcycling is fun. No one should have to strain their budget to enjoy it.” With that in mind, the company built bikes that were simple, with low maintenance costs, that anyone on any budget could enjoy riding.

    This was Moto Guzzi first bike.

    Suzuki RE-5

    The Suzuki RE-5, sold and built from 1974 to 1976, had a liquid-cooled single-rotor Wankel engine that was known for being uniquely designed.

    Wankel engines had components such as a smooth rotary engine, they were overall lightweight but were powerful and could produce a lot of power with even a smaller displacement. Rare then and even rarer now, the Wankel engine in the RE-5 was barely used in other motorcycles and is used even less now today.

    This upcoming MV debuted right at the turn of the decade.

    MV Agusta 350B Sport

    Debuted right at the turn of the decade, the MV Augusta 350B Sport was manufactured by Agusta during the early 1970s. It came with a new sporty updated look and design as well as a larger and faster engine.

    Though not too impressive today, in 1970 when the 350B was manufactured and tested, it had a top speed of 96 mph. In the decades to follow, Agusta would upgrade the engine and test out different body types.

    This Suzuki was part of the GS Series.

    Suzuki GS750

    The Suzuki GS750 was part of Suzuki’s GS series which had a full range of 4-stroke powered road bikes after selling only 2-stroke bikes up until the 1970s. The first bike that Suzuki designed with a 4-stroke engine was the Colleda COX in 1955 that had 125 and 93 cc engines.

    After more research, Suzuki designed the GS series and perfected the 4-stroke bike while still selling popular 2-stroke motorcycles. Sold along with the GS750 was the GS400 which debuted in 1976.

    This 1970s bike was designed by Alejandro de Tomaso.

    Benelli 900 Sei

    Designed by Alejandro de Tomaso, the Benelli 900 Sei was sold and manufactured from 1972 through 1978. The Benelli 900 Sei was an Italian bike that stood out in popularity from other Italian bikes on the market in the mid-1970s because of its speed and design.

    Upon release, the Benelli 900 Sei had a top speed of 120 mph. One of the 900 Sei’s lasting impressions was sparking the trend of angular designed motorcycles versus round forms.

    The name for this next bike came from Salt Flats, Utah.

    1970 Triumph Bonneville

    Though the 1970 Triumph Bonneville wasn’t a special standout motorcycle, it was a standard motorcycle that had a parallel-twin 4-stroke engine. It took over 3 generations for Bonneville to perfect the engine that was used in the 1970 model of the Triumph.

    The name Bonneville came from the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah where Triumph raced along with other manufacturers to break the motorcycle speed records. In 1970, the Triumph Bonneville had a 650 cc parallel-twin engine.

    This was known as one of the first Universal Japanese Motorcycles.

    Kawasaki Z1

    Released in 1972 following the Honda CB750, the Kawasaki Z1 was a Japanese motorcycle that was one of the first Japanese models known as the Universal Japanese Motorcycle. Universal Japanese Motorcycles were motorcycles that followed the regulations and guidelines of governing bodies from throughout the world.

    The Z1 was also the first large-capacity 4-cylinder motorcycle to have a double-overhead camshaft system on a production bike. The Kawasaki Z1 paved the way for more imported motorcycles that would come after it.
