This is a totally Old School design resembling the Captain America bike of movie fame. This one does ride better and it has a functional front end suspension unlike the movie bike. This bike is very strong and fast. It was custom built by “Kermit Harper of Frogs Hot Rods”, in Douglasville, Georgia. He is a true craftsman and has been building hot rods and motorcycles professionally for over 25 years. He tried hard to follow the Captain America bike theme while creating something a little different and more rideable. If you want to turn heads while cruising down the road, this will do it. Driven a few times on back roads and local charity rides. Driven once on the interstate to see how it handled and it did fine.
