View Full Version : 1917 HD replica made with a '79 ironhead

Quite a few builders have gone all out creating exact replicas of the early Harleys, only problem is the machines are not very practical to ride. Copperhead is not an exact replica but has a strong family resemblance to a 1917 Harley Davidson, though it began life as a 1979 Sportster. In other words, you have the antique look with a practical ride, qualities that remind me a lot of another bike we've mentioned here, the Warboy 883 XWL (http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2012/02/28/copperhead-1917-harley-davidson-replica-from-a-1979-sportster/). Anyone familiar with bikes will see the modern parts, like disc brakes, but the copper and brass everywhere plus the proper paint colors give it a really antique feel....
