Revell's Chopped Hog


Cool box art. I bought this model when it first came out in 1968-69?


A corporate idea of a chopper? The design of this bike wasn't exactly spot on.


At first I did build the kit this way. Later I built it into a proper chopper with molded rigid frame and peanut tank. I still have the engine trans and a few other pieces of it.

My brothers were into model building...including the choppers. I was into horses...go figure...

But I do remember the Revell line of glued choppers...oh yeah I surely do...

I had one of these too- certainly not the best of Revell's bike kits. I think my favorite would be the large-scale pre-unit Triumph chopper they brought out around the mid 60's.
Some of the later Harley kits weren't too bad either.

Hi,

Nice build. I also have this kit but I am missing the instruction plans.

Is there any possibility that you have them and you could mail them to me...?
my mail is master_kafrer@hotmail.com
Thank you very much

I don't have the box or instructions anymore. I should have mentioned that the model shown isn't mine. Like I said, I later chopped it properly, but now just have pieces of it left.

I'm putting this kit up on ebay now it includes the original instructions.
