Has anyone else seen or gotten their hands on one of these? I got mine from the Walmart where I work, some hoseheads put it together wrong and the first spin around my park the speedometer caught fire, so I'm trying to get in touch with the company. Did some research and finally found the company that makes them. Their website is Chopper bikes,Chopper bicycle,China Chopper bikes- HangZhou A-OK Bike Co.,Ltd
The first one in the top left is the one that I have, it is friggin awesome. I also did not get an instruction manual which is a bit of a bummer, but I'm going to try to fix it up nice and purty and maybe make a few funny cap videos with it. Need a cap costume and good looking shield first. I will try to figure out some pics and put them up, but just wondering if anyone else on the rpf got one of these cool bikes.
I will post up my mods and changes to it as I go along and what I've found out that probably is not mentioned in the manual.
First thing is that my high beam does not work, it runs a quartz halogen bulb, upon testing the power output, the headlights and turn signals all run on 52 volts. Crazy huh? I'm going to put a regulator in and lower them to 12volt and install LED's so that if I choose to, I can ride at night with minimal power draw.
There is no rear facing lights or reflectors at all on this bike. I plan to get a model A style "stop" glass round taillight and maybe a custom little license plate.
I am in San Diego California and really wanted to be able to ride this on the street, not sure of your local laws where you are all at but the electric bikes and such are mostly illegal in Cali. I was very happy to find out though, that this is LEGAL. All that is required is a visual inspection by the DMV and a $18 one time registration fee, no license, no insurance, it's a bicycle
The seat is a black faux leather, my wife's uncle had some 40-50 yr old leather he gave me and I just recovered the seat in it, going to change the whole look around.
The gas tank has a star and a stripe design on it, it is decals that got clearcoated in... poorly, my tank has a dent I'm going to get fixed, then I'm going to put a custom paint job on it, still unsure of what, but I think I want to go ahead and stick with the cap theme. There is a sticker on the frame next to the seat that says Captain America The First Avenger, and the green plastic fenders have the blue circle with the white star of the army.
I will look into getting some nice pics and putting them up soon, but if you want to see one, look on ebay, type in 7up chopper or captain america chopper.
