Bikes are big, and this Tom Daniel design is the biggest and wildest ever seen! Daniel built the King Chopper around a cut down Harley-Davidson 74 because of its big displacement, big horsepower, and big torque. Using a neat, low-slung frame to hang the engine, he used two small-diameter wide Indy ovals on the rear with a chain drive to harness all that power. Front spoked wheel with full-width racing drums is set at an extreme rake. The pleated saddle seat with high-back is a work of art and topped with a 'sissy bar' that serves as a perch for Tom's pet mean and ugly California Condor. Big 1/8 scale model is over 15 inches long and nearly 13 inches tall. It's a BIG-BIG model that's bound to be a BIG-BIG hit with the biker crowd. A powerful package in far out psychedelic colors will move this kit with all the speed of the real King Chopper!
1/8 Scale. Molded in Metallic Purple, 2 huge sprues of chrome parts, clear sprue, red and clear tubing and big rubber tires for the back and front. The build up was done straight out of the box with only glosscoat, black & white paint used. Used tan and a mix for the Condors neck. Carefully read through the instructions and check off each step as you go along. The decal sheet has also been updated. Take your time and use a quality glue with a precision applicator. This makes for an incredible show piece to add to your collection! What a great design from Tom Daniel. It derives from the Monogram tooling. Originally issued in 1969-70. Skill level 3 ages 14 and up. Officially Licensed with Tom Daniel Intellectual Properties. ©2020 This kit also comes with a sturdy corrugated bottom to give this jammed packed box more protection. Please note: the tubing and the clear tree are in the bag with the purple parts.
