The Zündapp KS 601 is a motorcycle designed by Ernst Schmidt, which the Zündapp-Werke GmbH, Nuremberg, built in the period from 1950 to 1957 "in nearly 5000 copies". The machine was mainly driven by sidecar. Because of their weight and the powerful engine as well as their typical green livery - other colors were also available - she received in a test report of the German magazine Das Motorrad (Issue 25/1951) the nickname "Der Grüne Elefant", which is a household name has been. In January 1956, KS-601 riders - including the motorcycle journalist Ernst Leverkus, known as "Klacks" - met at the Solitude racetrack for the first elephant meeting (Elefantentreffen), which has since then taken place under this name every year.

The term softail refers to motorcycles and bicycles that feature a hidden rear suspension system with springs or shock absorbers to absorb bumps. Softail motorcycles give the appearance of having a hard-tail or rigid frame, normally with the shock absorbers or springs under the motorcycle and out of view. The word "softail" is a registered trademark of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, coined with the release of the FXST Softail in 1984. Since then, the word has expanded to include other motorcycles with hidden rear suspensions as well as bicycles incorporating a rear suspension. In 2018 there will be no mor Dyna or Softail.

Harley-Davidson BSL Chopper Sidecar

26.05.2019 | 12:00

A chopper is a type of custom motorcycle which emerged in the United States in the mid-1960s. The chopper is perhaps the most extreme of all custom styles, often using radically modified steering angles and lengthened forks for a stretched-out appearance. They can be built from an original motorcycle which is modified ("chopped") or built from scratch. Some of the characteristic features of choppers are long front ends with extended forks often coupled with an increased rake angle, hardtail frames (frames without rear suspension), very tall "ape hanger" or very short "drag" handlebars, lengthened or stretched frames, and larger than stock front wheels. The "sissy bar", a set of tubes that connect the rear fender with the frame, and which are often extended several feet high, is a signature feature on many choppers.

All models have a double loop tubular frame and cardan drive to the rear wheel. Compared to the "Strich-Five" series, the wheelbase was extended by 80 mm to 1465 mm.
