Chopper and Cruiser: when to choose them
The chopper is a classic brand, a reference for the expert who has a great passion for the history of two wheels. The name derives from the English “to chop” (to cut off) and refers to the cult brand of Harley-Davidson. In the 1950s, bikers began to free their heavy Harleys from fenders, side cases, protective brackets, frame pieces, to improve performance. Choppers are the classic example of custom bikes , not suitable for novice or inexperienced riders.
Chopper motorcycles can be divided into two categories: those derived from a production model (especially Harley-Davidson) and those built from scratch . In both cases, the customization operations include techniques for lightening the bodywork and removing certain mechanical parts, but also modifications to the original frame , such as the front fork, very long and with a very wide angle of inclination.
A cruiser is similar to a chopper and is also lightened by some components. Since the chopper name refers to the Harley-Davidson brand, other manufacturers prefer the cruiser name. They are robust and bulky motorcycles, which offer a quiet ride even for long journeys.
They are not to be confused with scrambler motorcycles , with mainly road characteristics, to which slight modifications have been made to make them suitable for dirt roads or short off-road sections. The term scrambler derives from the English verb “to scramble” which means to mix.
