Swedish Style Choppers - Powered by S&S Cycle
Choppers are alive and well, especially in Europe! Evidence of that is Hogtech's EC approved Absolut Choppers. Bikernet.com brought these to our attention. These E-type and completely street legal choppers have some serious attitude and the Proven Performance® of the S&S V100 engine.
What is "Swedish Style" you ask? Stockholm New No. 10 describes it as: “It was in the postwar years when the WWII fighter pilot veterans started customizing motorcycles, to ride lower, laid-back, outlaw fashion, turning the bikes into 'choppers'.“
Hogtech designed not 1 but 2 of these machines, fit for the gods in Valhalla: "The Icelander" and "Black Ice".
Odin be praised!
Both of these choppers are built with the S&S 100" (smooth) V-Twin engine that is available for OE manufacturers only but S&S customers can order a V100 made-to-order engine (part #319-0007) that can be configured to your specs and even comes in different color finishes. You could even get a V107 or V113 if you want. Available through any S&S Dealer. Locate a dealer
