Saxon's Warlord Chopper is everything you'd expect from a production chopper-style bike and plenty more. Offering up tin in eleven different paint schemes should make most riders exceptionally happy; however Saxon also offers up a variety of custom paint too. The 96 cubic inch S&S engine arrives in black and is also available polished and in two larger bores, an S&S V100 ci and S&S 110 ci. The transmission is a six-speed Baker with a right hand belt drive. Carburetion is provided by the S&S Super E with an electric start the only start-type option.
The leather solo seat puts the driver just 21 inches off the pavement. There is a pillion pad available if you plan to have someone join you sometimes or a two-up seat if there's a permanent passenger in the picture. Passenger foot pegs are considered an option. The forward controls are nicely placed and fit nicely with the overall appearance.
At 108 inches long and 629 pounds dry, this is no lightweight ride. The 18 x 8.5-inch rear tire, sits on an 80-spoke wheel standard, or you can order up a variety of custom wheels. The front uses a 19-inch wheel, resting at the bottom of a 45-degree raked telescoping fork, finished off with chromed pull back handlebars. Sitting atop the handlebars, is an all-digital instrument cluster, keeping it simple with a speedometer, tachometer, and trip reset. All in all a good-looking combination.
If a classic chopper is what you're looking for, this bike is a sweet option, with its modern power plant and controls. The styling is good, with plenty of choices for customization and the ability to take it even further than what you see in the catalogue.
